Federer into final
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.
