Novak Djokovic wins second straight Rogers Cup title
Novak Djokovic won his second straight Rogers Cup title and third overall with a 6-3, 6-2 victory over Richard Gasquet of France on Sunday night.
It’s the top-seeded Serbian’s first title since winning the ATP Masters stop in Miami four months back and comes exactly a week after losing a bronze medal match at the London Games.
The victory came under clear skies at Rexall Centre after a week of frustrating rain disruptions that forced Djokovic, among other players, to play twice on Friday and late into Saturday night.
Despite the win, he will remain ranked second in the world behind Roger Federer, who pulled out the tournament because of a scheduling crunch with the Olympics.
Gasquet, the 14th seed at the tournament, was making his first Masters 1000 finals appearance since losing to Federer here in 2006.
