Rogers Cup winners are Rafael Nadal, Serena Williams


Serena Williams won her third Rogers Cup women’s championship by dominating unseeded Romanian Sorana Cirstea 6-2, 6-0 in Toronto.

Williams, who currently is ranked #1 in the world, has 54 WTA titles and a singles record of 610-111, good for 84.6%.

On the men’s side, Rafael Nadal beat Milos Raonic 6-2, 6-2 in the Rogers Cup final in Montreal.

Serena Williams rallied past Jelena Jankovic 3-6, 6-0, 6-2 to win her 15th straight match and the second straight championship at the Family Circle Cup Tournament in Charleston, South Carolina.

The tournament started to change when the two players got into a heated exchange when Williams complained that Jankovic was serving before she was ready, which is a courtesy of the game of tennis.

From there, Williams won six straight and 12 of the final 14 games.

But it was anything but easy for the 30-year-old tennis star who endured 92 minutes of up-and-down tennis to beat her opponent, 6-3, 6-4. The first set took 43 minutes and 49 minutes in the second set.

The 2nd-seeded Williams squandered 10 break point conversions, 44 unforced errors and only had 32 winners. Of her 44 unforced errors, Serena said, “that’s shocking and it’s unprofessional.”

Daniilidou had problems of her own, which prevented her from winning the match. She double-faulted nine times.
