Andy Murray ended his losing streak against Novak Djokovic to claim the Rogers Cup crown in Montreal on Sunday.

The Briton was already assured of rising to world number two after reaching the ATP 1000 final in Canada, and he celebrated with his first win over Djokovic since the 2013 Wimbledon final - triumphing 6-4 4-6 6-3 in just over three hours.

Djokovic had beaten Murray eight times in succession since the SW19 decider more than two years ago, including dramatic clashes at the US Open, Australian Open and French Open.

It was Murray's first hard-court win over Djokovic since he broke his major duck in the 2012 US Open final.

The Scot dedicated the win to coach Amelie Mauresmo, who gave birth to a boy hours earlier.

Djokovic, meanwhile, has concerns going forward - requiring treatment on an apparent elbow injury during the final.

The Serb also had a medical time-out in his semi-final win over Jeremy Chardy.
