Andy Murray defeated Novak Djokovic for the first time in two years to win the Rogers Cup
This is his fourth title of this year and 35th of his carrier.The British number one’s needed three hours to claim 6-4 4-6 6-3 victory in Montreal. The British had not won any match against the world’s number one in their eight meeting since the 2013 Wimbledon final.
The win just before the start of US Open in New York will also boost Murray. He will also set to overtake Roger Federer in the Monday’s ATP rankings. The Serb was defeated by the British number one for the ninth time in twenty eight meetings between them in total.
“I’m not sure she will have stayed up to watch this one but, Amelie, this one’s for you. Things can better very quickly and they can get worse very quickly in sport. It’s important for me to analyse this week and work on areas to improve on before the US Open starts. I need to make sure I recover well from this and get ready and hopefully play a good tournament in Cincinnati. This match will be good physically and mentally for the build-up for sure.”
