Milos won the biggest title of his career to date as he lifted the ATP World Tour 500 trophy at the Citi Open in Washington, D.C. on Sunday. In the first all-Canadian final in the Open Era, Milos defeated Vasek Pospisil 6-1, 6-4 to end the week without the loss of a set.
Victory marked the sixth ATP World Tour title of Milos’ career and will see him return to a career-high World No. 6 in the Emirates ATP Rankings on Monday.
"It’s great the way it started. I couldn’t have asked, really, for more," reflected Milos. "I had a chance to break in every single game in that first set. Then I continued to play solid after that. All in all, a very good performance and an important moment for me. I think I’m playing at a high level. I think the number I have beside my name is not a coincidence."
Next up for Milos is a homecoming at the Rogers Cup in Toronto, which begins on Monday. A finalist in Montreal last year, Milos is seeded sixth at the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 tournament and will open his campaign against either Jack Sock or Jurgen Melzer.
