  Monday 15th August 2011

The Serbian player, who is ranked No. 1 in the World, has won a record five Masters 1000 titles in one season: this is a completely new territory which not even Federer or Nadal have entered.

“History making, of course it’s special,” he said. “Of course, it’s an honour and privilege to be part of the history of the sport that I love and that I play.”

Montreal’s victory is the 53rd in a perfect season where Nole has lost only once – to Roger Federer at the Roland Garros.

In the men’s double, Llodra/Zimonjic dismissed the Bryan brothers in a very tight final, ending 6-4 6-7(5)  10-5.
