#25 Venus Williams
6' 1" 160lb RH 2H-BH

#5 Agnieszka Radwanska
5'7" 139lb RH 2H-BH

    On Sunday at Montreal, in the final of the Rogers Cup, the 2013 champ at Seoul, Sydney and Auckland, 25 year old 3rd seeded #5 (career high: #2) Agnieszka Radwanska from Krakow, Poland, defeated the 2014 champion at Dubai (and 5-time Wimbledon champion), 34 year old #25 (and former #1) Venus Williams from Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, 6-4, 6-2 (Venus is shown during the match; Aga is shown holding the hardware afterward).

    Agnieszka's prize is $467,300; Venus's prize is $227,000.

    Aga said: "Venus, I just want to say great match. Not just today, but it was a whole week of great tennis. And I had a really amazing week this week too. I've been playing here for years, a couple of times I made the semifinals, and I kept trying and trying, and now I've finally done it." WTA story

    Venus said: "I have to congratulate Agnieszka on a wonderful tournament and a wonderful final. I can't wait until we play again. I'm sure that will be many, many times in the future."

    Venus still leads Agnieszka 5-4 in career matches. Their previous meeting was in 2012 on red clay in the 2nd round at Roland Garros, when Aga defeated Venus 6-2, 6-3.

    Agnieszka is now 14-6 in WTA singles finals, and has a 40-14 singles match record in 2014.

    Venus is now 45-29 in WTA singles finals, and has a 24-10 singles match record this season.

    "I've been working so hard and I played well in the first set last week in Stanford and ended up losing in two. It's always challenging, but I want to get ready for the US Open and it would mean a lot to go far here." WTA story

    It was Venus' first win in Canada, and her first match ever in Montreal. Venus said: "It was a tough draw for both of us. We're both obviously very good players. She's also a dangerous player for the top players as well, because she can just do everything well. When she's on, it's sometimes very difficult to stop her. So it felt good to get through it. Hopefully I can build on this momentum for the rest of the week." WTA story

Maria about to swat a forehand

    Maria said: "It's been a few weeks since I've been in a competitive atmosphere. It's always quite different than practice no matter how much you train. Once you step on the court, you feel the energy from the crowd and you get inspired by everything, but you're ultimately a bit rusty. I'm just happy that I got through that and won today because I had a very tough opponent." WTA story

Serena driving a forehand

    About her quarterfinal, which will be against Caroline Wozniacki, Serena said: "It will be a great match. [Caroline] playing great tennis. She's really focused. She's just doing really, really well. It will be a really, really tough match. It will be a good match for me to see where I am." WTA story

    Agnieszka said: "I always want to improve. I think it's a progression from match to match. I think I can get even more consistent, even more aggressive, place my shots better, take my chances and go forward more." WTA story

*n16 s14 Carla Suarez Navarro ESP d n6 s4 Maria Sharapova RUS 6-2, 4-6, 6-2

Carla's forehand drive

    Maria said: "I thought [Carla] played a really good match. I couldn't find my rhythm from the beginning of the match. Always had my back against the wall throughout the whole match. Always came back from behind. Even though I started feeling a little better, it wasn't enough in the end." WTA story

Vika's backhand drive

    Victoria said: "I started really well and played pretty consistently throughout the whole match. [Heather] stepped up her game in the second set. I felt like I started to be less dominant for a couple of games, but then I brought it back and stepped up when I needed to. I was aggressive and moved well. It was a better quality match than my first match, and I was more consistent and took a lot more chances."

n13 s11 Caroline Wozniacki DEN d n121 q Shelby Rogers USA 6-1, 6-0

Caro driving a forehand

    Caroline said: ""It was a really good match out there today. I felt really comfortable and confident. I served really well, returned well. Shelby is a tough player. She has some big shots out there. But I was able to just neutralize them and play my game, and I'm happy how the match went today."

n1 s1 Serena Williams USA d n13 s11 Caroline Wozniacki DEN 4-6, 7-5, 7-5

Caro and Serena driving forehands

    Serena said: "She just does everything well. She's really fast, gets a lot of balls back, she makes you hit that extra shot. And she kept her unforced errors down super low today... Especially when you play someone like Caroline, you know your match might be a little longer than normal. You go in there thinking, 'This is not going to be routine.' You're just ready." WTA story

    Caroline said: "You know that [Serena is] going to serve well, she's going to go in and attack you straightaway, she's going to take the ball early. You know it's going to be a tough fight. She's not going to give a match away."

    About playing her sister Venus in the semifinals, Serena said: "I definitely don't like playing her. I think I've lost to her more than anyone else on the tour. So it's definitely not a fun match for me, to be honest. But she's tough. She has a great serve. She runs every ball down. She has a great backhand. She hits winners off the forehand. She just does everything well, so it's not an ideal match-up for anyone, to be honest."

Venus's forehand drive

    About playing her sister Serena in the semifinals, Venus said: "I have to play well. That's pretty much it. There's no secret or science to it... Hopefully I won't have to play the match of my life. That's tough. But I need to play well." WTA story

n20 Ekaterina Makarova RUS d n48 q Coco Vandeweghe USA 6-1, 4-6, 6-1

Kate fielding a forehand

    Kate said: "[Coco is] in really good shape now and hitting so hard. She's so aggressive, and serving really well too. It was really tough to stay calm and solid. I just tried to keep playing my game, and I think I did it well in the first and third set, and I'm happy I could come through." WTA story

Serena driving a forehand, Venus launching one on the run, and after match point

    Venus struck 6 aces, with 2 double faults, while scoring on 4 of the 8 break points she reached against Serena and totaling 92 points. Serena fired 19 aces, but with 9 double faults, while converting 1 of the 3 break points she held against Venus, and totaling 81 points. Venus won 56% of her 2nd serve points (21/37); Serena won only 36% of her 2nd serve points (14/38).

    Venus said: "The level of game we played was pretty high. We're both serving well, returning well, moving well. Everything is happening so well that all of our matches seem to be very competitive." WTA story

    Serena said: "[Venus] was really opening the court well. She's such a good mover. She moves really well. I think her serve was way more consistent than mine. I had more aces, but she served better. Ultimately I think she returned better as well."

n5 s3 Agnieszka Radwanska POL d n20 Ekaterina Makarova RUS 7-6(1), 7-6(3)

Kate and Aga driving backhand and forehand

    Aga said: "I think it was a great match. Two hours of fighting and long rallies and tight games. I had to really run a lot to win that match because she's so good. I had to give 100% today. I think I was just better on a few points today. I'm really happy with the win." WTA story
