The Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal ended Sunday the remarkable streak of the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas by defeating him 6-2 and 7-6 (7-4) to win the Rogers Cup title for the fourth time in his career.

Tsitsipas, who was playing in the final of the Toronto Masters 1000 on his 20th birthday after stringing together four wins in a row against players in the top 10 in the world, used all his variations but could not contain the number one in the rankings.

The young man born in Athens maintained his service at the beginning of the game but then suffered two breakdowns that led to Nadal to take the first part in 34 minutes.

The Spanish had to work a little more in the second set but finally took the game after the tie-break to add his 33rd title in the Masters 1000.

Nadal, 32, who had won the Rogers Cup in 2005, 2008 and 2013, became the fourth tennis player to win 80 titles in the Open Era, joining the select club that includes Jimmy Connors (109), Roger Federer (98) and Ivan Lendl (94).
