The 40-year-old secured a straight-sets 6-4, 7-5 win against Australia's Dylan Alcott.

"It's just a real honour to be able to represent the USA and play the best tennis that I can every time that I step on the court," said Wagner afterwards.

"This is my seventh Masters title, which is unheard of, so I'm just going to celebrate now.

"It's a dream come true just to have the chance to win seven of these titles, let alone to actually win seven of them."

Meanwhile in the women's draw, Yui Kamiji's women's title defence was ended by The Netherlands' Jiske Griffioen, who triumphed 6-4, 6-1 against her Japanese counterpart.

Griffioen's compatriot Aniek Van Koot set up an all-Dutch final by beating Britain's Jordanne Whiley 6-7(4), 7-5, 6-2 in the other last-four encounter.

Van Koot saved three match points from 2-5 down in the second set, to battle to a thrilling three-set win against the previously unbeaten Whiley.

"I went from confident, to sad, to wanting to give up, to furious, to comfortable, to being stressed again," said the world number three

"She [Whiley] put up a really good fight; she's a really good player.

"She's already a force and I'm pleased for her that she's making that much progress.

"I'm a bit scared for the rest of us next year."

Van Koot added: "I didn't expect this, to be in the final, especially after the first set today.

"My mum has been very ill for the last month and it's been a very stressful time, so it's going to be lovely to call her today and make her smile."
