World No. 1s Rafael Nadal and Simona Halep win titles in Canada

Nadal was set to be top seed in Cincinnati, where he won the title in 2013, after defeating Greek sensation Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-2 7-6 (7-4) in Sunday's Rogers Cup final.

Tsitsipas will play his first ATP Masters 1000 final on his 20th birthday on Sunday against world number one Nadal after the Spaniard defeated Karen Khachanov 7-6 (7-3), 6-4 in their rain-delayed evening match.

'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 US Open later this month.

"And winning three good matches in the first Master 1000, it's so important for me".

It turns out he's quite the Greek philosopher as he wrote "It never gets easier, you just get better" on TV cameras after his semifinal win. "I became involved because of my parents who happen to be tennis coaches, so tennis was part of my life since the very beginning".

Nadal broke again shortly after to comfortably take the opening set 6-2, with Tsitsipas unable to make an impression on the Spaniard's serve.

Strzok also faced off against Republicans during a 10-hour congressional hearing regarding the text messages in June. That would have put him on thin ice if he were commit another offense.

At 1-1 in the second set, Tsitsipas won a long rally at deuce and completed the break when Anderson pushed a return wide.

Murray pulled it back to 5-4, having saved match point on his serve as he trailed 5-3, but Pouille held his nerve to hold serve in the 10th game, sealing a deserved victory.

"I am very sorry to announce that I won't be playing in Cincinnati this year", Nadal said in a statement.

"But that's how it is". It's an individual sport and it's you who chooses your team.

The World No.1 has been in blistering form all year, and would have been amongst the favourites to win.

Romanian Halep, who had beaten Stephens in Paris in June, claimed her second Montreal title in three years and third for the 2018 season.

Commenting on his choice, Nadal said: 'That's what I felt at that moment.

Nadal overcame a late service break and fought off a set point at Aviva Centre.

Stephens had dominated the first set, scoring two early breaks to race into a 4-0 lead against a hesitant Svitolina.

Nadal regained control, earning a match point on a Tsitsipas forehand error.
