Halep came close to a trophy a couple of times this year but only now did she get her first one. It was a big one with the WTA 1000 event in Canada and Mouratoglou agrees that is a big and important one. It's that way because it's their first one together and it should give Halep confidence moving forward:
Halep returns to top 10 after winning National Bank Open for third time: "I'm just dreaming for more"
"I want to congratulate Simona (Halep). You have been an incredible competitor all week and shown once again why you have such a relentless career. Once again, it is an honour for me to be by your side. This is our first title together and a big one. With 18 out of the Top 20 in the draw, it means a lot… and makes us hungry for more."
The duo will move their attention to Cincinnati with the US Open not far behind.
