Nadal upset by Canadian teenager in Montreal

Rogers Cup: Roger Federer admits he sometimes feels sorry for opponents

The Swiss star comfortably overcame 12th seed Roberto Bautista Agut 6-4 6-4 in the quarter-finals, but he feels he will have to be on top form to see off occasional practice partner Haase in Montreal.

Federer, whose five titles this year include the Australian Open and Wimbledon, credited a positive mindset for helping him extend his winning streak to 16 matches.

Roger Federer has vowed to showcase an aggressive brand of tennis as he aims to win the Montreal Masters and continue his incredible year.

Nadal will play Canadian teenager Denis Shapovalov, who beat 2009 U.S. Open champion Juan Martin Del Potro 6-3, 7-6 (4) on a sultry Wednesday afternoon match.

Federer, who is eyeing his 27th Masters 1000 title and his third Canadian Masters title, will meet either German Alexander Zverev or young Canadian Denis Shapovalov in Sunday's final.

Trump's first action as president was not ordering the Defense Department to conduct a Nuclear Posture Review. During Republican presidential debates, Trump appeared stumped by questions about the triad strategy.

The win boosted Federer's career record against Ferrer to 17-0, prompting Federer to say: "I'm not 100 per cent comfortable with the head-to-head I have against David because I have so much respect for him". "Both things combined, two major factors in a beginning of a match, I was able to get into the match better". I thought that was really nice'.

While the 18-year-old looked drained emotionally early on - he was broken on his first two service games - he started playing better near the end of the first set.

He broke service for a 2-1 lead in the third only to hand it back in the next game, but a roar went up when Mannarino wasted a chance to put away a game point and Shapovalov jumped on the chance to break for a 5-4 lead.

Whoever won the other semifinal, Federer knew he would be facing a much younger opponent. "Even though, Zverev is a more experienced player than Shapovalov at this stage". I'm most happy that I'm actually really healthy going into the finals. Very rarely, except maybe when Andy, Novak and Rafa (Nadal) were coming up. I'm happy to be in the final. "I still have to work really hard every day". "He played with the right determination in the important moments". Comparing Federer to an elegant freight train, the Canadian said that he had no answers to Federer's transition from baseline to the net.

Haase, who upset seventh-seeded Grigor Dimitrov in the third round, was in his first career semifinal of a Masters Series tournament. Federer said that he is playing the tournament with a lot more flair and confidence. "But, in general, to make an achievement like this is good because it shows you can do it".
