Bautista Agut in marathon win over Monfils at Rogers Cup; Schwartzman advances

Roger Federer and Alexander Zverev will face off for the Coupe Rogers title on Sunday in Montreal. Watch live tennis

Shapovalov will play in the semi finals against either Alexander Zverev or Kevin Anderson on Saturday.

Haase will face the victor between second-seeded Roger Federer and Roberto Bautista Agut in the semifinals on Saturday. He defused some of Shapovalov's aggression with stellar defense and he produced a high level of consistency and physicality that the southpaw could not match. The top seeded Nadal and second seeded Federer cruised through their matches on Wednesday.

Now ranked 143rd in the world after a win in a lower-level Challenger event only three weeks ago in Gatineau, Que., Shapovalov will crack the top 70, possibly to 66th, for reaching the semifinals.

This was when the intestinal fortitude of Zverev shone brightest.

"If I would have known I would have gone to the finals, I would have said "yes" right away".

Zverev was hit by the double fault bug as well tossing in six of his own, but the World No. 8 saved three break points serving for the match at 6-5 and eventually closed it out.

Perhaps it was understandable that the Swiss maestro was a little rusty on this occasion, for this was only his second competitive match since winning an unprecedented eighth Wimbledon.

Kylie Jenner Attends Prom for the First Time
Before the show started, Kim Kardashian posted a sweet Instagram saying she was "so proud" of her little sister. Kylie , who just turned 20, was reportedly "ecstatic" over a diamond necklace Scott gave her for her birthday.

Germany's top player echoed those sentiments in press, elaborating on what he felt could be the beginning of a solid rivalry.

"I think it pays off playing aggressive here in Montreal", Federer said in a courtside interview after his 6-4 6-4 win over the 12th seed. You know, he had a good start, I had a better finish.

Spain's David Ferrer, 35, was a perennial top-10 player until he began to drop in the rankings previous year.

Haase battled gamely, particularly in an entertaining second set that went all the way, but was ultimately beaten 6-3 7-6 (7-5) as Federer earned the latest triumph of a sensational 2017 season. I don't know about myself either. Will he be able to consistently reproduce the inspired tennis when the fatigue of the tour sets in?

Zverev has now won his last 9 matches after winning Washington last week, and 10 straight in Masters events following that Rome title.

"In the juniors, yeah (and) probably my two times when I beat (Marco) Chiudinelli, because we grew up together in Basel, we played soccer against each other", Federer said.

"Like the media was putting it, it was a dream week for me", said Shapovalov. At just 18 years, Shapovalov became the youngest player ever to reach the round 16 of a Master Series since Rafael achieved the feat in 2004 at Miami. I was like, Obviously one N. Then the commentator started calling Denis (not pronouncing the S). There's a reason for it. Not even I probably achieved finals of a Masters 1000 at that age. "I'll try to enjoy as much as I can".
