Rafael Nadal won the 35th Masters in 2019 Rogers Cup

The Spanish player Rafael Nadal defeated Daniil Medvedev 6-3, 6-0 in the final on August 11, to maintain the all-time leading position in the number of Masters 1000 titles.

In the first meeting, Rafael Nadal and Medvedev were excited for the crowd of Montreal audiences, with durable balls with 24 hits and 32 similar times in the opening game of the final.

The Russian player had a chance to win the first game to save the ball but Nadal easily solved it and since then, he has not faced any break-point again. The reigning champion clearly expressed the supremacy through extremely heavy hand, approached the net positively (11 out of 13 times on the net successfully) and pushed the opponent to back down.

The first double fault in the game caused Daniil Medvedev to lose the game and Nadal took the 3-1 lead. He showed obvious advantages in mid-range ball exchange situations and short-lasting durable balls. The first set wins after the winner along the line in the ninth game.

Playing with the mentality of having nothing to lose in the second set, Medvedev did not create a chance. Even the 23-year-old youngster has made more mistakes with four double errors and has been broken all three games. Absolutely winning the seven-ball delivery point in one set, Nadal completed the final victory after 70 minutes.

During the match, Nadal scored 12 winners and 13 mistakes, and Medvedev 10 winners and 22 similar mistakes respectively.

Successfully defending the Rogers Cup championship, Rafael Nadal marks the fifth title in this tournament and is only one cup behind the legendary Ivan Lendl. In five finals on Canadian soil, Nadal lost only one set (in the match against Andre Agassi in 2005).

This achievement has helped the Spanish player to lead all time to the number of Masters 1000 championships (34 titles). This is also the 83rd ATP title in Nadal's career, ranking 4th in the Open era.
