First Published Aug 10 2014 11:03 pm • Last Updated Aug 10 2014 11:03 pm

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga won the Rogers Cup on Sunday in Toronto, beating second-seeded Roger Federer 7-5, 7-6 (3) for his fourth straight victory over a higher-seeded opponent.

The 13th-seeded Frenchman won his first ATP Tour title of the season and 11th overall. He beat top-ranked Novak Djokovic on Thursday, eighth-seeded Andy Murray on Friday and seventh-seeded Grigor Dimitrov on Saturday.

Tsonga improved to 5-11 against Federer, who dropped to 2-5 in finals this season. The Swiss star made several uncharacteristic errors and had a hard time with Tsonga’s powerful serve and ground strokes.

In Montreal, Agnieszka Radwanska beat Venus Williams 6-4, 6-2 to win the Rogers Cup title.

The third-seeded Radwanska, the first Rogers Cup champion from Poland, picked up her first tournament victory of the year and the $441,000 winner’s prize. The 34-year-old Williams earned $220,000.

The 25-year-old Radwanska used her relentless baseline game to dominate a tired-looking Williams, who was coming off an emotional, three-set victory over her top-ranked sister Serena Williams in a semifinal on Saturday.

Radwanska, ranked fifth in the world to Williams’ 26th, posted her first Rogers Cup win after twice reaching the semifinals. It was her first tournament victory since 2013 at Seoul.
