Nadal downs Tsitsipas to win Toronto Masters
    2018-08-14  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

RAFAEL NADAL held off a late surge from birthday boy Stefanos Tsitsipas to claim the 80th title of his career with victory at the Toronto Masters on Sunday.

Nadal overcame a second set fightback from Greek youngster Tsitsipas to claim a 6-2, 7-6 (7/4) victory in just under 1 hour and 45 minutes.

The win gave the 32-year-old Spaniard a record-extending 33rd trophy at the elite Masters level as well as his 80th title.

However Nadal later raised doubts about whether he would be chasing an 81st title at next week’s event in Cincinnati, refusing to confirm that he would play the event as scheduled.

“Will I play in Cincinnati? I can’t answer to you right now,” Nadal said.

Earlier, a vocal crowd of local flag-waving Greek fans had sang Happy Birthday to the 20-year-old Tsitsipas as Nadal reflected on a successful campaign.

“I feel I’ve improved every match, it’s important to win even if you’re not at your best,” Nadal said as he prepares for the U.S. Open later this month.

“It’s been almost 10 years (2010) since I last played in Toronto,” Nadal said of the event which comes to the city in even-number years as it trades with Montreal.

“This trophy means a lot.”

The loss concluded the tennis week of his life for Tsitsipas, who beat four top 10 opponents in a row to reach the final. (SD-Agencies)
