ROGERS CUP: Rafael Nadal won his 80th ATP World Tour title and spoiled Stefanos Tsitsipas’ 20th birthday, beating the unseeded Greek upstart 6-2, 7-6 (4) in Toronto for his fourth Rogers Cup crown and fifth title of the year.

After the match, Rafael Nadal withdrew from the Western & Southern Open this week in Cincinnati.
