Earlier in the season, the 29-year-old stunned Pliskova in the opening round of Eastbourne in June and backed that up with a straight-set victory in the third round of the Tokyo Olympic Games.
Giorgi captured her first WTA 1000 trophy, her third career title following her triumphs at ‘s-Hertogenbosch 2015 on grass and Linz 2018 on indoor hard courts. She collected $221,500 in prize money as well as 900 WTA Ranking points and will move up to World No. 34 in the WTA Rankings.
Giorgi will next play at the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati facing US-American Jessica Pegula in the first round as a repeat of her Montreal semi-final.
