Rogers Cup Montreal 2014 winner is Agnieszka Radwanska

Radwanska 25, the number five ranked player in the world won her first tournament of the season in Montreal.

Tournament director Eugene Lapierre called Agnieszka Radwanska the “anti-star,” and he meant it in a good way.

The right-hander, who won the US$2.44 million women’s Rogers Cup with a too-easy 6-4, 6-2 victory over Venus Williams on Sunday, is not flashy on or off the court.

She is relentlessly efficient, a tireless returner of balls from the baseline, with subtle changes of speed and spin that wear down vulnerable opponents like Williams, who had worn her 34-year-old self out with a stirring, three-set win over her top-ranked sister Serena Williams in the semifinals.
