Federer beats Haase, meets Zverev in Montreal final

A tight start to the match went to serve for the first eight games leaving it 4-4, but Federer picked up the first break in the ninth game, repeatedly attacking Bautista Agut's second serves to the point at which the Spaniard double faulted to hand the Swiss the break.

Shapovalov's tournament included consecutive wins over 2009 U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro and top-seeded Spanish star Rafael Nadal.

That said, Stephens did win the most recent clash (New Zealand in 2016) and should have a formula in mind to frustrate Wozniacki with a spot in the finals on the line.

Shapovalov spent much of the match alternating between errors and impressive winners, consistently fighting off break points on his serve. I thought that was really nice'. Never really on a hard court, except at the Hopman Cup.

"In the juniors, yeah (and) probably my two times when I beat (Marco) Chiudinelli, because we grew up together in Basel, we played soccer against each other", Federer said.

"I know I can't become number one here, I'm just playing Montreal for the tournament that it is, and I'm trying to win it for the first time in my career", Federer said.

Denis Shapovalov of Canada celebrates after defeating Adrian Mannarino of France during quarter-final play at the Rogers Cup tennis tournament Friday August 11, 2017 in Montreal.

Flag-waving fans in the packed grandstands at Uniprix Stadium were hoping for more magic, but Zverev was too strong, winning 81 percent of the points off his serve compared to 64 percent for Shapovalov. "I'll try to enjoy as much as I can". "But at the end of the day he did a good job to make me play those points".

Judge Dismisses School Sex Charges
Thompson cited student-teacher sex laws in other states that he believes are constitutional. Until the ruling goes up for appeal, it will not be binding for other cases in the state.

"Rafa took a lot out of me".

"I wish him the best".

Haase, who hit 17 winners, made a later charge and forced a second-set tiebreak before Federer stymied the challenge to win the match.

Going by that stat, Ferrer's chances were extremely slim, however the Spaniard - who dropped out of the world's top 30 for the first time since 2005 earlier this year - has appeared rejuvenated in recent weeks after winning an ATP 250 title in Bastad last month. I won four. The one that I lost was against Roger.

"I think those young players don't quite know what to expect, and (neither) do I, because nobody quite knows", said Federer.

Bautista Agut fought back from a set down and out-lasted Frenchman Gael Monfils 4-6 7-6 (7/5) 7-6 (7/2) in just under three hours.

Roger Federer recovered from an uncharacteristic out-of-sorts first set to defeat David Ferrer in the third round of the Rogers Cup.

He won 16 straight victories to equal his longest win streak since 2012 and 15 straight at Masters.
