Jannik Sinner and Jessica Pegula both cruised to straight-set wins in the finals of the Canadian Open.

Italian Sinner, 21, saw off Alex de Minaur 6-4 6-1 in 90 minutes in Toronto, breaking the 24-year-old Australian’s serve on five occasions.

While, American Pegula won her final in Montreal, dominating Russian Liudmila Samsonova to win 6-0 6-1 in just 49 minutes.

It is a second WTA 1,000 title for the 29-year-old world number three.

World number 18 Samsonova faced a tough task to win the final after she finished playing little more than two hours earlier in her rain-delayed semi-final against third seed Elena Rybakina, which she won 1-6 6-1 6-2.

The victory caps off a strong week for Pegula, who beat world number one Iga Swiatek in the semi-finals

In winning her first title of the year, Pegula has become the first American to lift the Canadian Open trophy since Serena Williams in 2013.
