Roger Cup: Roger Federer rolls into final

Just as Nadal's grinding performances fit seamlessly with the name, "King of Clay", it is hard to imagine a player more synonymous with the grandeur and history of Wimbledon than Federer.

"I mean, I go from being not known to being so known in the tennis world, in Canada in general".

Next up is unseeded Robin Haase of the Netherlands, who said he was lucky to come back for a 4-6, 6-3, 6-3 win over Diego Schwartzman of Argentina.

The 19-time Grand Slam champion has now won all 16 sets in his seven matches against Bautista Agut. "I was more committed and a step further in, adjusting my position slightly realizing the ball does fly a lot".

Zverev has now won his last 9 matches after winning Washington last week, and 10 straight in Masters events following that Rome title. He has a ATP Tour high five titles in 2017.

Things started to come together for the Swiss midway through the second set, however he was still forced to save two break points when serving at 5-4, before drawing level at a set apiece.

He is 1-0 against Haase - a straight-sets win in Davis Cup play in 2012.

In defeating Shapovalov, Zverev did what Rafael Nadal and Juan Martin del Potro had failed to do.

The day didn't turn out to be good for Canadian aces as sixth seed Milos Raonic lost 6-4, 6-4 to Frenchman Adrian Mannarino in his opening match. It set up a wild final game, with Shapovalov saving two match points and Zverev erasing three break points before it ended with a misfired backhand by the Canadian. Shapovalov also upset former US Open victor Juan Martin Del Potro in the second round.

It was an even contest in the first set, Shapovalov and Zverev going toe-to-toe until the ninth game.

He saved the first with an ace but Ferrer made no mistake with his second set point, converting to take the opener 6-4. Obviously the rain delay helped me. "I knew that was a very big turning point", Shapovalov said.

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

Notably, Haase has had a good run in the tournament, beating the likes of Albert Ramos-Vinolas and Grigor Dimitrov en route to his maiden Masters 1000 semi-final. Then this kind of eats you up inside mentally. "It drains you because you know you can do better, but actually your own body is not letting you". I've been working on it a lot in the past few years. I haven't played him that much yet. "My game is better".
