Roger Federer wins Montreal Masters semi-final against Robin Haase

Roger Federer wins Montreal Masters semi-final against Robin Haase

Roger Federer raised his game to another level at the ATP Montreal Masters on Saturday beating Robin Haase 6-3, 7-6 (7/5) to reach the final.

Dimitrov had won both of their previous meetings in straight sets, although this was their first encounter since 2014. "I also told him that this is just the first match of very, very many that we will play against him". "Sometimes I played them maybe 30 or 40 times".

Those that have followed along recently know I haven't picked against Federer during his run and don't plan to anytime soon given his current form.

Federer will face Robin Haase of the Netherlands, who defeated Diego Schwartzman 4-6, 6-3, 6-3 earlier in the day.

The second seed this week, Federer was typically dominant on serve for much of the match and never really looked likely to fall victim to an upset against an opponent playing a Masters 1000 semi-final for the first time.

"I'm looking forward to a tough match because he can serve very well and he mixes up his tactics a lot", said Federer. I just played loose after that, just went with it. Federer then took control of the round, winning all of the points in turn in the service. "I was more committed and a step further in, adjusting my position slightly realizing the ball does fly a lot", Federer was quoted as saying on the ATP World Tour's Web site.

Federer responded quickly in the second set, going a break up to lead 3-2 before holding for a 4-2 lead.

The pair met in a Davis Cup World Group play-off in 2012 with Federer winning 6-1, 6-4, 6-4. He defeated former US Open victor Juan Martin Del Potro in the second round in straight sets 6-3, 7-6 (7/4) to set up the showdown with Nadal.

He edged ahead again but Shapovalov won the next three points to bring up match point, which he took at the first attempt with a forehand victor. Shapovalov also upset former US Open victor Juan Martin Del Potro in the second round.

Wozniacki overcame rain delays and a shaky second-set tiebreak performance to defeat Pliskova and punch a ticket to the semifinals.

Flag-waving fans in the packed grandstands at Uniprix Stadium were hoping for more magic, but the German was too strong, winning 81 per cent of the points off his serve compared to 64 per cent for Shapovalov. Obviously the rain delay helped me.

"If I don't save those match points in the first match, there's no chance of being here". "When I broke him, I got that little bit of confidence, and I started believing in my shots again".

The 36th-ranked Schwartzman next faces the victor between seventh-seeded Grigor Dimitrov and Robin Haase.

"I think he's definitely the favourite", Zverev said". I came back really fast, from zero to 60 in eight months. "But, in general, to make an achievement like this is good because it shows you can do it". "My game is better". After breakout scintillating wins over Juan Martin del Potro, Rafael Nadal and Adrian Mannarino, in addition to having saved match points in his first round match, the young 18-year-old fell just short in a spirited contest with 20-year-old Alexander Zverev who outclassed and overpowered the Canadian 6-4, 7-5 in the quarterfinals.
