Fed­erer into fi­nal

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - THE SECOND PAGE -

Roger Fed­erer con­tin­ued his long­est win­ning streak in five years by reach­ing the Rogers Cup fi­nal at Mon­treal. The sec­ond-seeded Fed­erer used a 6-3, 7-6 (5) vic­tory over un­seeded Robin Haase of the Nether­lands on Sat­ur­day to reach his sixth fi­nal of the year and win his 16th con­sec­u­tive match. Fed­erer, 36, is look­ing for a third Rogers Cup ti­tle but his first in Mon­treal, hav­ing won in 2004 and 2006 in Toronto. A vic­tory would give Fed­erer, cur­rently ranked third in the world, one of the top two seeds at the U.S. Open that be­gins Aug. 28 in New York. In to­day’s fi­nal, he will face the win­ner of the sec­ond semi­fi­nal be­tween De­nis Shapo­valov, 18, of Rich­mond Hill, On­tario, and Alexan­der Zverev, 20, of Ger­many.
