Novak Djokovic beat Milos Raonic 1-6, 6-3, 6-4 to win the 2020 Western & Southern Open title.

Raonic broke to lead the third set 2-0 when Djokovic sent a forehand long, but Djokovic broke back at love, Raonic netting a backhand on the final point, and broke again in the fifth game, seizing a 3-2 edge when the Canadian netted a forehand.

Djokovic held serve from there to claim the crown after two hours when Raonic netted a forehand.

Andy Murray defeated Alexander Zverev 6-3, 3-6, 7-5 at the Western and Southern Open in New York.

Murray took a 4-1 lead after an early break that eventually brought him the first set.

The deciding set found the advantage swinging this way and that. Murray led 4-1 at one stage, but later admitted that he then became nervous, felt fatigued and stopped moving his feet.

Next it was Zverev’s turn for self-sabotage, as he sent down that rash of double-faults when leading 5-4. And finally Murray put himself into the third round with a magnificent backhand return winner. All through the match, he had been pouncing on the Zverev second serve and ramming it back at pace.

Andy Murray defeated Frances Tiafoe 7-6(6) 3-6 6-1 in their first-round match at the Western and Southern Open.

This tournament moved from Cincinnati to New York because of the coronavirus pandemic.

With no spectators allowed, matches were played in eerie silence under the shadow of the massive Arthur Ashe Stadium that will be centerstage when the U.S. Open starts on Aug. 31.

The scott got his first tournament of 2020 off to a positive start by surviving a near two-hour, 30-minute challenge from Tiafoe to reach the second round where a sterner test awaits in fifth seed Alexander Zverev.

Novak Djokovic finally clinched the title missing from his resume with a 6-4 6-4 win over Roger Federer on Sunday to win in Cincinnati and become the first player to complete the sweep of Masters series tournaments on Sunday.

Having made five previous finals and lost to Federer in three of them, Djokovic finally broke the ice to continue his stunning revival after a long comeback from elbow surgery.

The Wimbledon champion is the first to claim the Career Golden Masters, having won all nine titles in the elite series that began in 1990.

"Obviously it's a very special moment to stand here for the first time with the winning trophy," former world number one Djokovic said after defeating seven-times Cincinnati champion Federer.
