Dutchman Haase tops Schwartzman to reach Rogers Cup semifinals

12 Août 2017

Unseeded Argentine Diego Schwartzman posted a unusual win over American Jared Donaldson 0-6, 7-5, 7-5 to advance to a quarterfinal meeting with Robin Haase, the 52nd-ranked Dutchman who upset seventh-seeded Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria 7-6 (3), 4-6, 6-1.

"I think I did a good job again, even though it was tough to control the ball".

Federer held for 5-3 and looked to have clawed his way back into the set with a break of Ferrer's serve in the next game to make it 5-4.

"It's what I dreamed of all my life growing up, playing guys like Rafa (Nadal), Roger (Federer), Andy (Murray)", Shapovalov said. With hockey great Wayne Gretzky and Olympic swimming star Penny Oleksiak cheering for him from the seats, he also became the youngest quarterfinalist at a Masters Series tournament ever and is the youngest to beat a player ranked in the top two in the world since Nadal beat Federer in 2004 in Miami. Shapovalov broke Mannarino to take a 5-4 lead in the deciding set and then served out the match.

The momentum changed in the second set after a brief rain delay halted play for about 10 minutes with Shapovalov holding a 3-2 lead on serve.

As a matter of urgency, Ruggiero argued, the US should punish Chinese banks and companies helping North Korea evade sanctions. The latest United Nations resolution bans North Korean exports of coal, iron, iron ore, lead, lead ore and seafood.

"I struggled against Ferrer early on, so today was better". "When I broke him, I got that little bit of confidence, and I started believing in my shots again".

Haase has had to overcome several injuries in his career but says he is finally in a good place. Haase said it was hard for both players after playing tough three-set matches against seeded players earlier in the week. I came back really fast, from zero to 60 in eight months. I was insecure. I had a lot of problems with other injuries after. "It drains you because you know you can do better, but actually your own body is not letting you".

The 18-year-old left-hander from Richmond Hill, Ontario beat France's Adrian Mannarino 2-6, 6-3, 6-4 and awaits the victor of the late match between fourth-seeded Alexander Zverev of Germany and Kevin Anderson of South Africa.

"I've been working on it a lot in the past few years". Nowhere was Federer's wayward performance better illustrated than in the seventh game, when he squandered three break points at 0-40 to allow Ferrer to take a 5-2 lead.

Zverev, 20, is the youngest player ranked in the top 20 in the world and Shapovalov became the youngest since 1990 when he reached the quarterfinals of the Masters 1000 event.
