Federer into Montreal semis

Roger Federer defeated Roberto Bautista Agut 6-4, 6-4 in the quarter-finals at the Rogers Cup on Friday.

Federer will next face Robin Haase, a 4-6, 6-3, 6-3 winner over Diego Schwartzman.

The Swiss broke serve for a 5-4 lead in the first set and broke again for 2-1 in the second enroute to a one hour eight minute win over Bautista Agut.

Federer hammered five aces, made just two double faults and won 81 percent of his first serve points in the 68-minute centre court match.

Bautista Agut struggled mightily on his serve and won just 65 percent of his first serve points.

“It pays off playing aggressively here in Montreal, plus I feel comfortable at net, so why not spend some time there instead of slugging it out from the baseline,” Federer sais. “I think I did a good job again, even though it was tough to control the ball. I got some decent rhythm going.

“Yesterday, I struggled against [David] Ferrer early on, so today was better. I was more committed and a step further in, adjusting my position slightly realising the ball does fly a lot."

“I wanted to play a great tournament, and I think I did a good week,” said Bautista Agut. “Today, I felt that I didn’t get into the rhythm of the match and I didn’t feel the ball well. Roger plays very fast and he didn’t want to rally with me, so he went for his shots. To be in the quarter-finals here in Montreal is a very good result for me, also getting hard-court matches under my belt.”

Federer has not ranked as the World No. 1 since 4 November 2012. With no points to defend in the rest of the 2017 season, he could potentially add to his 302 weeks at the pinnacle of men’s professional tennis as early as 21 August.

“I obviously follow it, because Rafa had an opportunity to get to No. 1 this week," Federer told ESPN television. "I thought it would take a few months to get my teeth into it, but now Rafa is out I obviously know I can make big strides. It’s all connected by great play, but I have to focus on the next match against Haase.”
