Federer cruises in Rogers Cup

Denis Shapovalov of Canada celebrates his victory over Rafael Nadal of Spain during day seven of the Rogers Cup presented by National Bank at Uniprix Stadium

Zverev drew upon that experience on Saturday night to end the sensational run of his 18-year-old opponent, notching a convincing 6-4, 7-5 win and setting a final clash with Roger Federer.

Federer lost just three points on serve in the first set against Polansky, who is ranked 117th, and he was never seriously challenged.

Fourth-seeded Zverev, coming off a win last week in Washington, D.C., and seeking a fifth tournament win this year, will face Swiss legend Roger Federer in the final on Sunday.

Federer is aiming for the third Rogers Cup win of his career and sixth title of a remarkable 2017 season.

Shapovalov will play the victor of the match between No. 1 seed Rafael Nadal and 20-year-old Croatian Borna Coric.

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

Denis Shapovalov's dream week ended, but a rivalry may have been born with rising star Alexander Zverev.

Federer will face Spain's David Ferrer in the third round. I played in five finals this year. "The crowd really lifted me". Her served out the set in the ninth game.

Federer last won the tournament in 2006, since when he has been a beaten finalist on three occasions, and a victory this year would boost his bid to become world number one after next week's Cincinnati Masters. "I just hope to take this confidence and keep going forward".

Be it pronunciation or performance, from broadcasters, to fans, to Tennis Canada and even Denis Shapovalov himself, everyone seemed to be learning on the fly.

Frenchman Monfils fended off four match points to beat Japanese world number nine Nishikori in a three-set thriller 6-7 (4), 7-5, 7-6 (6). "A bit surprising, to be quite honest, because I hadn't practiced much".

The talented German most recently met Federer in the Halle Open final in June and was thoroughly outclassed and will need to be at his absolute best if he wants to equal the former world number one's title tally. They were such great teenagers that we maybe saw it more often. It drains you because you know you can do better.

The 36-year-old Swiss will next face unseeded Dutchman Robin Haase, a 4-6, 6-3, 6-3 victor over Diego Schwartzman of Argentina.

"I started off pretty slow, just drained from yesterday".
