Share

Garbine Muguruza won the Western & Southern Open title with a thumping win over Simona Halep, who missed the chance to become world number one. "I don't know. It's insane". "So I'm not thinking about that". The match went 2 hours, 45 minutes - her longest of the tournament.

Is there a moment at a tournament, maybe the quarterfinals or semifinals, where you flip a switch and go from searching for your form to really believing you can win the title?

I think I played my best match on hardcourt so far", said Halep, "It felt great.

"And it was just there". "I recover well, so definitely I will be ready for tomorrow".

This was also Muguruza's first tournament win in the United States. Everyone can get to No. 1 now.

Halep said: "It's tough to analyse anymore about this thing. I mean, I know it's nerve-wracking from outside, but it's even tougher when you're in there and have to receive a serve that comes 141 miles per hour". But it's still there. "I had some chances in the second set", Pliskova said.

11th-ranked Dimitrov, who lost in the last year's semifinal to eventual champion Marin Cilic, will face Australian Nick Kyrgios, who knocked out David Ferrer 7-6 (7-3), 7-6 (7-4).

Nadal was assured of advancing past injured Andy Murray for the top spot when Roger Federer withdrew from Cincinnati with a back injury. Dimitrov, a Bulgarian, took advantage and won the title with his steady serve. I'm just going to go out there from zero. "During the match the energy was pretty low". "I knew where he was going to serve but I couldn't do much on the ball". It's just unbelievable. I always like this tournament.

"I don't think I played my best tennis today", Pliskova said. You know, you have to be aware of that.

Muguruza: I just wanted to show that I had them in my mind. I wasn't enjoying it at all, didn't want to be out there. In the second dramatic tie-breaker, Dimitrov denied Isner on three set points and finally capitalized when Isner netted a forehand. "But now, I have been so many times to this place, it's like my home". "I'm going to go out there and compete and whatever happens happens". If not, then I have to find another way. "I worked hard on beating these kinds of opponents. Yeah, you have to be aware all the time". He is the first player to win his first Masters 1000 title without dropping a set since Novak Djokovic at the 2007 Miami Open.

"That's never easy", she said. I'm happy to be there, happy to be in that situation. You know, from where I was to here, it's just been unbelievable.

"It couldn't have gone to a more deserving player".
