Serena Romps Through to Canadian Title Win at the Rogers Cup

Serena Williams made short work of unseeded Romanian Sorana Cirstea in today’s final of the Rogers Cup in Toronto, 6-2, 6-0, getting her through the tournament without dropping a set.  The win gave Williams her 8th title of the season, and 54th career WTA trophy.

Cirstea was playing just her 3rd WTA final, with one win in Tashkent, but she should not feel too disappointed with her tournament.  Her road to the final garnered some big scalps: Jelena Jankovic, Caroline Wozniacki (both former #1′s); defending champ Petra Kvitova, and former Slam-winner Li Na.  Those wins, and at a tournament this high-profile, should take the 23-year-old Romanian’s career to a new level.  It takes her rank to #21 when the new rankings come out tomorrow.
