The 18-year-old from Westmount, Que., led 6-2, 5-2 before Dubois, who hails from Laval, Que., retired from the match. Dubois was the defending champion at the tournament.

Vasek Pospisil of Vernon, B.C., won the men's title with a 7-6(2), 6-4 victory over Igor Sijsling of the Netherlands in a battle between the top two seeds on the men's side.
