Ageless Roger Federer dominant vs — ATP Rogers Cup


But all went in vain as the Spaniard lost to Denis Shapovalov 3-6 6-4 7-6 (7-4) in the third round of the Rogers Cup in Montreal, today.

Second-seeded Roger Federer advanced to the quarterfinals, but it was not easy. "Fatigue from last week is not the reason as I'm not exhausted", he said. He's nearly always done the heavy lifting of his year in the first half.

"I was just swinging for the fences", said Shapovalov, who saved four match points en route to victory over Rogerio Dutra Silva in the first round and defeated former US Open victor Juan Martin del Potro in the second round. I play really bad. It's so much fun having them cheer me on. I know what I'm capable of playing. Seventeen is a lot.

That unrattled Shapovalov, but only momentarily after breaking Nadal fortuitously to force a third and deciding set.

"But even like this, even how bad I played, I had a lot of chances. So this type of head-to-head is a bit odd".

Losing the opening set snapped Federer's remarkable run of 32 consecutive sets won by the Wimbledon champion.

Polansky earned a stay of execution after holding serve in the sixth game to make it 5-1, but Federer raced into the next round with a comfortable hold, finishing with an emphatic overhead smash.

In an impressive display of resilience, Shapovalov held his nerve to win the second and third sets despite coughing up two breaks of serve from 4-1 up in the second set. Federer controlled matters from that point.

Federer, who celebrated his 36th birthday on Tuesday, took just 53 minutes to beat Canada's world No 116 Peter Polansky 6-2 6-1. 'In the second set, I was able to put pressure on him and he helped me with some double faults, of course.

"It just felt really surreal, you know, I couldn't believe it actually happened", Shapovalov told the media after the win.

"We battled and both tried to find a way to win".

Monfils, who saved four match points while beating Kei Nishikori on Wednesday, seemed to be in control of the match when he led 3-1 in the second set after winning the first.

Some people are calling it the biggest victory in Canadian tennis history.

But Federer, a three-time victor of the tournament, recovered to seal a last-eight clash against Roberto Bautista Agut.

In other results, third-seeded Dominic Thiem of Austria was upset 6-4, 6-7 (7), 7-5 by Argentina's Diego Schwartzman, and fifth-seeded Kei Nishikori of Japan, a finalist previous year, was ousted 6-7 (4), 7-6 (7), 7-5 by Gael Monfils.

The 24-year-old Schwartzman will next face Dutchman Robin Haase, who upset seventh-seeded Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria 7-6 (3), 4-6, 6-1 in 2 hours and 9 minutes. "If he loses in straight sets, already he played a good tournament".

He also rued his missed opportunities in the final set, having wasted a massive amount of five break points in his first three return games of the decider.

German Alexander Zverev also reached the quarter finals after he eased past Nick Krygios from Australia 6-4 6-3 and will take on Kevin Anderson from South Africa who also swept aside American Sam Querrey 6-4 6-3 to reach the next stage.
