MONTREAL (AP) — Agnieszka Radwanska beat Venus Williams 6-4, 6-2 on Sunday to win the Rogers Cup title.

The third-seeded Radwanska, the first Rogers Cup champion from Poland, picked up her first tournament victory of the year and the $441,000 winner’s prize. The 34-year-old Williams earned $220,000.

The 25-year-old Radwanska used her relentless baseline game to dominate a tired-looking Williams, who was coming off an emotional, three-set victory over her top-ranked sister Serena Williams in a semifinal on Saturday.

“I think I was playing much better every match,” Radwanska said. “I didn’t start that well from my first match, but every match was much better.

“That’s why I think I’m sitting right here now with you (reporters). I was feeling the balls much better.”
