Elina Svitolina beat Caroline Wozniacki 6-4, 6-0 to win the Rogers Cup final Sunday, giving her a fifth WTA Tour title this season.

The 22-year-old Ukrainian used powerful groundstrokes and a big serve to keep the sixth-ranked Wozniacki off balance.

A break at love in the ninth game gave the fifth-ranked Svitolina the edge in the first set. She wasn't threatened again in the 77-minute match.

It was Svitolina's fourth victory over a top-10 opponent this week and third win in two days.

She beat ninth-ranked Venus Williams in the third round, topped No. 4 Garbine Muguruza in a rain-delayed quarterfinal Saturday morning and downed No. 2 Simona Halep on Saturday night.

Svitolina has reached five finals this year and won them all. Wozniacki fell to 0-6 in final appearances this season and is 0-3 in head-to-head matches against Svitolina.

Svitolina will move one spot to a career-high No. 4 when the new rankings are released Monday

In the doubles final, top-seeded Russians Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina beat eighth-seeded Anna-Lena Groenefeld and Kveta Peschke 6-0, 6-4.
