The San Jose event ends with three consecutive titles for Milos Raonic, who rolls over Tommy Haas in straight sets on Sunday. Raonic captures his fourth career ATP trophy.
What Milos Raonic wouldn't do to maintain the existence of the SAP Open....
But he can worry about that next year. For now, Raonic is once again riding high and on top of San Jose after thrashing Tommy Haas 6-4, 6-3 in the title match on Sunday afternoon. The top-seeded Canadian blasted 19 aces and did not face a single break point as he won his third consecutive title at the event in one hour and 15 minutes.
Raonic, who is a perfect 12-0 lifetime in San Jose and 24-0 in sets, came out firing and took control right away. A series of punishing returns led to a break of serve at 1-1 and Raonic never came close to giving it back in the first set. He fired 11 aces in the opener while winning 18 of 20 first-serve points.
It was all but over for Haas when he dropped serve at 3-3 in the second and the 34-year-old German knew it. He saved one break point with a swinging volley but threw the game away by sending a slice backhand just past the baseline. Raonic held easily for 5-3 before an outmatched Haas donated serve again to end it.
The world No. 13 improves to 4-3 for his career in ATP finals (his other title came last year in Chennai). Haas, who recorded one ace and no double-faults, falls to 13-12 in title matches.
