Jo-Wilfried Tsonga won the Rogers Cup overnight, beating second-seeded Roger Federer 7-5, 7-6 (3) for his fourth straight victory over a higher-seeded opponent.

It was the 13th-seeded Frenchman's first ATP Tour title of the season and the 11th of his career. He beat top-ranked Novak Djokovic and eighth-seeded Andy Murray last week and seventh-seeded Grigor Dimitrov at the weekend.

Tsonga improved to 5-11 against Federer.

Federer dropped to 2-5 in finals this season, with his victories coming in Dubai and Halle.

In the doubles final, Bruno Soares Alexander Peya topped Ivan Dodig and Marcelo Meloof 6-4, 6-3.
