Roger Federer Tops Bautista, Shapovalov Continues Run To Reach Montreal Semis
MONTREAL (AP) Roger Federer advanced to the semifinals of the Rogers Cup and was joined later Friday by Canadian teenager Denis Shapovalov, who followed his upset of Rafael Nadal with another three-set victory.
The 18-year-old left-hander from Richmond Hill, Ontario beat France's Adrian Mannarino 2-6, 6-3, 6-4 and awaits the winner of the late match between fourth-seeded Alexander Zverev of Germany and Kevin Anderson of South Africa.
Shapovalov beat 2009 U.S. Open champion Juan Martin Del Potro in the second round and then knocked off the top-seeded Nadal in a third-set tiebreaker on Thursday in the round of 16.
The second-seeded Federer continued his mastery over 12th-seeded Roberto Bautista Agut of Spain with a 6-4, 6-4 victory. The 36-year-old Swiss will next face unseeded Dutchman Robin Haase, a 4-6, 6-3, 6-3 winner over Diego Schwartzman of Argentina.
