The fourth-seeded Zverev, seeking a second tournament title in as many weeks, advanced to the final on Sunday against second-seeded Roger Federer, a 6-3, 7-6 (5) victor over unseeded Robin Haase of the Netherlands. Entering the encounter, Federer had all the assets on his position as he had won all their six previous meetings.And he did that without losing a set against the 29-year-old Spaniard. The cards seemed stacked against him that day-during the hardcourt match, Federer received treatment on his thigh while down a break in the fifth set-all against a man who had beaten him 23 times in 34 matches.
The pair met in a Davis Cup World Group play-off in 2012 with Federer winning 6-1, 6-4, 6-4.
Shapovalov held his serve through a more than 14-minute game early on, but lost it to go down 4-5 in the opening set, double faulting on break point.
Haase, who hit 17 winners, made a late charge and forced a second-set tiebreak before Federer stymied the challenge to win the match. He saved two match points in a 16-point final game with Zverev serving for the match before the German finally finished off the upstart to notch his 45th win of 2017.
"For someone at his age to beat Del Potro and Nadal back to back I would say is a sign he's got a big future", McEnroe said to Daily Hive Friday.
In the other quarter-finals, Shapovalov came from a set down to beat Adrian Mannarino of France 2-6, 6-3, 6-4, and Germany's Alexander Zverev dismissed South Africa's Kevin Anderson in straight sets, 7-5, 6-4. "I got some decent rhythm going".
He said he stuck around to watch the match and remembers how Igor Andreev, Nadal's opponent, rolled his ankle but still tried to battle it out, not unlike how Shapovalov himself has been powering through adversity this week.
In the semi-final on Saturday, Haase will face the victor of the clash between Switzerland's Roger Federer, second seeded, and the Spanish Roberto Bautista Agut, ranked 12th. "Both things combined, two major factors in a beginning of a match, I was able to get into the match better".
Not as entertaining a tilt, perhaps, as some of the Canadian's earlier matches, most especially his stunning upset dispatch of top-seeded Rafael Nadal, but it had its moments, some of which Shapovalov will likely be seeing in his dreams, or nightmares, for a while to come.
Federer has taken more time off this year than usual.
Federer will now play another Spaniard, Roberto Bautista Agut, in the quarter-finals. I started to believe more and more again.
It is hard to see how Haase can win this match.
"I hope it gives me a lot of confidence", Haase said of his performance for the week.
