Rafael Nadal bagged his 25th career Masters title with the Rogers Cup win on Sunday — his third “Roger” in a row.
Rafael Nadal clinched the title by defeating Canada's Milos Raonic 6-2 6-2 in the men's final on Sunday. This is Nadal's eighth ATP title this season.
Playing his first tournament after the shocking early Wimbledon exit this year, Nadal was in his elements in this match. He proved that ailing body could take the hardships of the gruelling demands of the North American hardcourt season.
In less than a day's time after he knocked out Novak Djokovic in the semi-finals, Nadal easily defeated the dangerous Raonic, leaving the spectators jaws-dropped!
"To win here, I had to be playing my top level," Nadal told reporters. "I'm very happy the way that I played almost every match in this tournament. It's very important for me, this title."
Sunday's victory provided Nadal with his third win at the Rogers Cup and his 25th career Masters title and the Spaniard will rise to three in the world rankings when they are released on Monday.
