20 year old A. Zvere stunned World no. 3 & Wimbledon Champion Roger Federer in straight games to lift the Rogers Cup Trophy here at Montrel.
Alexender Zverev just made his great season even better, winning his 5th title of the year (joining Federer at the top of the list) and the 2nd Masters 1000 crown after a 6-3 6-4 triumph over Federerin an hour and 8 minutes.
Zverev was the better player on the court, hitting with more power and taking the most important points, saving all 3 break points he faced and breaking Roger once in each set. Thus, young German became only the 6th U20 player who won 2 Masters 1000 titles in a season (he beat Novak Djokovic in the final of Rome) after Michael Chang, Andrei , Marat Safin, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, and the youngest Canada Open winner in 10 years.
From tomorrow, Sascha will be on his career best ranking !!
Rogers Cup: Elina Svitolina beats Caroline Wozniacki in Toronto final
Ukraine’s Elina Svitolina beat Caroline Wozniacki in straight sets to win her fifth title of the year and condemn the Dane to a sixth final loss in 2017.
Fifth seed Svitolina won 6-4 6-0 at the Rogers Cup to become the first woman to win three events at the elite Premier 5 level in the same year.
The 22-year-old could become world number one if results go her way at next week’s Cincinnati Open.
Wozniacki, seeded sixth, has lost all six finals she has played this year.
“It was a tough day,” said the Dane. “She played well. She mixed up the pace and made it uncomfortable for me out there.
“Today, probably I could have used some more pace, but she played really smart today and used my pace to her advantage.”
After her victories in Dubai and Rome, Svitolina’s win in Toronto takes her past Wozniacki, Maria Sharapova, Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka as a three-time winner of Premier 5 titles in the same season.
“It’s amazing that I achieved this, but I try to take one tournament at a time, to not think so much about all the past titles,” said Svitolina.
“Of course it brings me confidence, I have the experience from those finals, but I try to take it as a new challenge and always look forward to it.”
