Federer advances to Montreal final

Bautista Agut in marathon win over Monfils at Rogers Cup Schwartzman advances

Federer eased into the semifinals with a workmanlike 6-4, 6-4 win over 12th-seeded Roberto Bautista-Agut of Spain.

Next up on Sunday for the Swiss right-hander, who is seeking his third Rogers Cup title after triumphs in Toronto in 2004 and 2006, is Zverev after the fourth seed advanced with a 6-4 7-5 win over Canada's Denis Shapovalov. Only Rafael Nadal (47) has more wins than the 20-year-old this season, and with his win tonight Zverev became the youngest Coupe Rogers finalist since 2007, when Novak Djokovic won the title.

In Sunday's final, he will face the victor of the second semi-final between 18-year-old Denis Shapovalov of Richmond Hill, Ont., and 20-year-old Alexander Zverev of Germany. "I hope that this match gives me some better rhythm and confidence against Bautista Agut, who plays actually very similar to David", Federer said. The combination of Federer's terrific serve and aggressive, accurate hitting off the ground will be too much for the Dutchman. "Both things combined, two major factors in a beginning of a match, I was able to get into the match better". "It pays off playing aggressively here in Montreal, plus I feel comfortable at net, so why not spend some time there instead of slugging it out from the baseline", Federer said.

"I think it pays off playing aggressively here in Montreal". And he did break right back, utilizing a series of nervy volleys that passed and froze and even drew a racquet-tapping ovation from Zverev.

Federer has taken more time off this year than usual.

"It's a good race and it's exciting for tennis". I didn't, but I managed to win because I kept fighting.

"I'm very happy that I've made it here", he said. He recovered from the precipice, winning a mammoth rally at 15-40 with his physical superiority, and eventually went on to claim a break for 6-5 when Shapovalov-for the third time in the evening-double-faulted a break away. "I've seen some great atmospheres over the years". He is Wimbledon's golden boy once again, and the tennis world has found itself reformed believers of the graceful and timeless Swiss champion. Haase has won six of his last eight semifinal matches when you include challenger play.

"I saved four match points the first round (against Rogerio Dutra Silva)". Never really on a hard court, except at the Hopman Cup. "I was more committed and a step further in, adjusting my position slightly realizing the ball does fly a lot". "Next week (in Cincinnati), different conditions, different courts, so it's tournament by tournament".

In a doubles semi-final, seventh-seeded Rohan Bopanna of India and Ivan Dodig of Croatia defeated sixth-seeded Raven Klaasen of the Netherlands and Rajeev Ram of the United States 4-6, 7-6 (8), 11-9.
