Roger Federer marches into semis while there was another HUGE UPSET in Doubles

World number 3 Roger Federer improved his score in 2017 to 34-2 after a solid 6-4 6-4 triumph over  Roberto Bautista Agut in an hour and 8 minutes, advancing to his 7th semi-final at the Canada Open, and the first in Montreal since 2007!

This was their 7th meeting and Swiss scored as many wins, never losing a set against the Spaniard.

Unlike yesterday, when he played a very poor match against David Ferrer, making almost 50 unforced errors and losing a set for the first time since Stuttgart, Roger looked much better today, controlling the points and attacking his rival at the right moments to impose his shots and keep the rallies on his racquet.



Thus, Roger advanced to his 59th Masters 1000 semi-final, and he is only the second 36-year-old who reached that round at this rank of competition, after Andre Agassi in 2006. Federer returned well, winning almost 40% of the points on Bautista Agut’s serve, breaking Spaniard 3 times from 6 opportunities.

Roberto had a nice chance to get back on the scoreboard in game 6, missing 2 break points, and he probably regrets that second one a lot, as he netted an easy backhand. Swiss served for the win in game 10 and he delivered a solid one, finishing the job with a good forehand attack to reach the last 4 and grab more valuable points in the chase for the number 1 spot.

French Duo beat 4th seeded Bryan Brothers




France’s Pierre-Hugues-Herbert and Nicolas Mahut defeated fourrh seeds Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan to reach the semi-final at the Rogers Cup.

The French duo saved two consecutive set points during the first set and three more in the following set before taking a 7-6 (5) 7-6 (11) win.

The fifth seeds needed an hour and 49 minutes to improve to a 3-0 head-to-head record over the Bryans.

Herbert and Mahut beat the Bryan brothers in the Rome Masters semi-final past May on their way to winning their so far only title of the year.

They will be meeting next eight seeds Oliver Marach and Mate Pavic, who proved to be too much for top-seeded Henri Kontinen and John Peers.

Australian Open champions Kontinen and Peers firstly blew a 6-2 tie-break lead and then a 9-8 lead before losing the opener. The duo had a chance to send the match into a decider but just couldn’t serve out for the second set at 5-4.

Kontinen and Peers were hoping to continue their good in Montreal after making it all the way at the Citi Open in Washington last week but fell short in that attempt.

The match came to an end after an hour and 59 minutes of action.
