Canada's Milos Roanic has won the SAP Open in San Jose for the third year in a row - but there will be no fourth as this was the last year the event is being played in San Jose.

In Sunday's final, Roanic beat 34 year old German veteran Tommy Haas 6-4, 6-3 to remain unbeaten in three visits to the event.

The 13th ranked Roanic, who will drop one spot to no. 14 in the rankings, commented, "It’s pretty awesome. It’s pretty special. It’s more than just the trophies that I have. It’s the little things that come with it. There was always the maple syrup story. The San Jose Sharks jersey. It all means a lot. With this event, that has had so many great champions, it’s pretty special. To sort of one-up it and three-peat is pretty awesome.”

34 year old Haas,w ho will climb to no. 18 in Monday's rankings, commented, "There was nothing I could have done. I didn’t play a bad match. I just came up against a guy who played phenomenal tennis today. He didn’t give me any looks on his serve. All the credit to him for that. He served extremely well. He has a lot of confidence. He took risks when he had to and got rewarded for it. That’s his game and that’s what makes him so tough.”

This was the 125th and final staging of the SAP Open.
