Roger Federer just one step away from creating History at Montreal, storms into finals

Roger Federer just one step away from creating History at Montreal, storms into finals

Wimbledon Champion Roger Federer is just one step away from lifting his first ever title at Montreal.

World number 3 improved his score in 2017 to 35-2 after a solid 6-3, 7-6 (5) triumph over unseeded Robin Haase of Netherlands in an match that lasted an hour or 15 minutes. 

Federer was quick to break the service of Robin in the initial stage of first set & gets into front to take the lead. 4 aces & 86% of the first serve won assured the Swiss first set victory by 6-3.

Robin saved 4 break points out of 6 while his first serve percentage was the thing to worry.

In the second set both players held with ease in the opening 6 games and it was Roger who started to attack more and more as the set approached the closing stages .

With no player able to break the opponent’s service, the set went to the decider where no.2 seed maintain his superiority & won the decider by 7-5 & booked his spot in the finals of Montreal.

Interestingly, Robin was a little bit better in the second set in terms of aces & first serve percentage & also had a nice chance to seal the set in the decider where he was leading at a point (5-4) but couldn’t hold his nerves & went down to World no. 3.

An interesting incident happened during the match where a spectator shouted “Come on Roger” but Robin Haase was quick to respond and replied “My name is Robin”,  the whole crowd burst into laughter & applause.

Roger Federer will now take on the winner of match between 4th seed A. Zverev & Canadian D. Shapovalov who stunned World no.2 Rafael Nadal.
