Montreal tennis final between Hurkacz and Carreño Busta

08:51 am: The Masters final will be held in Montreal between Polish tennis player Hubert Hurkacz and Pablo Carreno Busta of Spain. Hurkacz, ranked 10th in the world, defeated Norway’s Casper Ruud (seventh in the world ranking) in three sets: 5-7, 6-3, 6-2. Carreno Busta qualified for his first Masters final, defeating Britain’s Dan Evans: 7-5 6-7 (7) 6-2.

The unseeded Spaniard, ranked 23rd in the world, never dropped a set en route to the semi-finals. “I’m playing unbelievably this week,” said the 31-year-old Spaniard, who has won six ATP titles in recent years. In Montreal, he reached the Masters final for the first time.

Hurkacz (25) won the Miami Masters last year. The Pole took his fifth ATP Tour title of the season in Halle. “Casper was better in the first set and a half, and I basically tried to stay in the match. I had to keep up and fight.”

Women prepare for the US Open in Toronto. In that Canadian city, the final match was between Romanian former world number one Simona Halep, and Beatriz Haddad Maya. The 30-year-old defeated American Jessica Pegola in three sets (2-6, 6-3, 6-4), and surprised Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic 6-4, 7-6 (7). Pliskova was in the final last year when the tournament was held in Montreal. Halep won the Canadian WTA Championships in 2016 and 2018.

Haddad Maya won the grass tournaments in Nottingham and Birmingham in the run-up to Wimbledon, but then faltered in London in the first round. In Toronto, Iga Swietic, the Polish No. 1 world number one, and Olympic champion Belinda Bencic of Switzerland have already surprised this week.
