Injured Federer and Wozniacki stumble at the final hurdle

Federer comes through Ferrer test to reach the last eight at the Rogers Cup

Denis Shapovalov and Alexander Zverev meet Saturday in the semifinals of the 2017 Rogers Cup.

"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 said.

"It's wonderful that I achieved this, but I try to take one tournament at a time, to not think so much about all the past titles", said Svitolina.

He added, "I don't know if I will be able to go far there because I am a little bit exhausted".

Toronto: Denmark's Caroline Wozniacki sailed into the final of the WTA Toronto tennis tournament by cooling off the red-hot Sloane Stephens, while Elina Svitolina needed two wins to punch her ticket to the title match.

The Wimbledon champion fell to only his third defeat of 2017 as 20-year-old Zverev clinched a 6-3 6-4 victory in Montreal.

Asked directly if the topic came up, Duterte cursed at a reporter who asked about reported abuses and said not to 'go there'. Human rights groups have questioned the Trump administration's willingness to engage with Duterte.

Shapovalov, the youngest ATP World Tour Masters 1000 semi-finalist ever, will face Alexander Zverev of Germany in the semis tonight, sometime after 8 p.m. ET.

At 20 years old, Zverev is quickly finding himself and rising rapidly up the rankings with these final appearances. Zverev was the better, stronger, more forceful and more polished player from start to finish, and while Shapovalov threatened a comeback in the last game Zverev persisted for a win. "It was a good decision for me".

He was quoted by the ATP World Tour's official website as saying: "I felt all right all week. I just told him that this is the beginning for him", Zverev said of his fellow #NextGenATP peer. I didn't, but I managed to win because I kept fighting. "We'll have to wait and see now how I feel in the next couple of days".

"This is still a transition year for me". Zverev hopes to make his sixth final appearance of the year and his ninth for his career. "I think, like, everything is going pretty natural". "Had a bit of muscle pain, aches and pains here and there, just because it's back on the match courts, on the hardcourts". You could see that we were both mentally (tired). I was insecure. I had a lot of problems with other injuries after.

Things started to come together for the Swiss midway through the second set, however he was still forced to save two break points when serving at 5-4, before drawing level at a set apiece.

Federer later announced that he will give this week's Cincinnati Masters a miss. It drains you because you know you can do better.
