Newspaper: Federer sets up Rogers Cup final against Zverev

2017 ATP Rogers Cup: Ageless Roger Federer dominant vs. Peter Polansky in Montreal

The 20-year-old German sprung a surprise when he defeated the Swiss 19-time Grand Slam victor 6-3 6-4 in an hour and eight minutes - only Federer's third loss in 38 matches this season.

Zverev stretched his match winning run to nine.

Federer has already won two Grand Slam titles this year and his form on hard court-tournaments has been phenomenal.

Action at the Cincinnati Open will have an impact on the world No. 1 ranking.

Flag-waving fans in the packed grandstands at Uniprix Stadium were hoping for more magic in the battle of youngsters against the 20-year-old Zverev. He dominated at the net, winning 21 of 25 points.

Federer served two double faults in his opening service game but still managed to save three break points to fend off his bullish opponent.

However, as great champions usually do, the Swiss improved as the match went on and found a way to win.

Zverev, who triumphed in Washington last week, kept Federer at bay early in the first set before he found the break he needed to edge in front.

Victory for Federer on Sunday would earn him a 94th ATP Tour title of his career - levelling Ivan Lendl in second place in the Open Era list - and sixth of a remarkable season. "I'm happy where I am". "I didn't play too well from the baseline, but Haase served better to get back into the match". "I don't feel like things are going unnatural".

"Now we'll see what happens for the rest of the year", said Federer. Shapovalov isn't playing completely flawless tennis, but he keeps coming away with the big points, hits impressive winners and is feeding off the Canadian crowd that provides that extra boost.

Israeli-born teenager Denis Shapovalov, who upset top-seeded Rafael Nadal in Montreal's Rogers Cup tennis tournament, lost in his semifinal match.

In Saturday's semifinal, Shapovalov will meet the victor of Friday's late match between fourth-seeded German Alexander Zverev and Kevin Anderson of South Africa.

Federer saw his streak of winning 32 consecutive sets end against David Ferrer but bounced back to reach the last eight. We know each other well.

The German player defeated Federer 6-3, 6-4 to claim the 1000-series title, a victory that establishes Zverev as one of the clear favorites to win the 2017 US Open.

"Game-wise and confidence-wise, I'm superhappy the way everything is standing", Zverev said.

"It's a huge opportunity for them". Not even I probably achieved finals of a Masters 1000 at that age.

"It's a good race and it's exciting for tennis".

"I wasn't the player I was before my injury", Haase said. "I think, like, everything is going pretty natural". He is now ranked a career-high seventh, heading into the next tournament with a chance to make it three in a row. Rafa took a lot out of me.

Federer later announced that he will give this week's Cincinnati Masters a miss.
