Fed ad­vances

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

ROGER Fed­erer con­tin­ued his long­est win­ning streak in five years by reach­ing the Rogers Cup fi­nal.

The sec­ond- seeded Fed­erer used a 6- 3, 7- 6 ( 5) vic­tory over un­seeded Robin Haase of the Nether­lands yes­ter­day to reach his sixth fi­nal of the year and win his 16th con­sec­u­tive match.

He had con­sid­er­ing skip­ping the event, but de­cided to play and now has a chance to add to a 2017 tally that al­ready in­cludes two ma­jors.
