Federer punches ticket to Montreal semis
Swiss star Roger Federer outclassed Roberto Bautista Agut as he inched closer to his sixth title of the season in a 6-4, 6-4 win in the quarter-finals of the Montreal Masters on Friday. "I think I did a good job again, even though it was tough to control the ball. I got some decent rhythm going," Federer said. Federer's chances of winning another title of the season were given a boost when top seed Rafael Nadal was upset by world No. 143 Denis Shapovalov of Canada on Thursday night. Federer advances to the semi-finals where he will face Robin Haase of the Netherlands.
