Flashback: When Andy Murray took top honours in 2009

In 2009, a new king was crowned at Rogers Cup: Andy Murray of Great Britain. A tournament regular, Murray had never gotten past the semis since his debut at the event in 2006. A year earlier, he had fallen to Rafael Nadal of Spain in an attempt to secure a spot in the final.

Upon his arrival in Montreal in 2009, Murray’s confidence was at an all-time high. He had already taken home the titles at Doha, Rotterdam, Miami and Queen’s earlier in the season and was fresh off a semi-final run at Wimbledon .

Benefiting from a first-round bye, the Brit went on to secure consecutive victories over Jérémy Chardy, Juan Carlos Ferrero and Nikolay Davydenko. In the semis, he overpowered Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, who had caused a surprise upset when he eliminated Roger Federer in the previous round. Against the Frenchman, Murray’s dominant play did not waver as he secured himself a spot in the final, all without dropping a set.

The stage was set for a showdown against Juan Martin del Potro. While he may not have been as prominent on the tennis scene as  Federer, Nadal or Djokovic, del Potro remained a force to be reckoned with. The world no. 6 had previously appeared in the semi-finals at Roland-Garros and had collected his second title of the season in Washington in the weeks leading up to Rogers Cup.

After letting the first set slip away, Murray made a masterful comeback in his three-set victory 6-7(4), 7-6(3), 6-1. His win ended the Argentinian’s eleven match winning streak and allowed him to hoist his very first Rogers Cup trophy.
