Bautista Agut in marathon win over Monfils at Rogers Cup; Schwartzman advances

Robin Haase of the Netherlands in action against Roger Federer of Switzerland during the ATP Rogers cup men's semi final in Montreal, Canada, 12 August 2017.

The fourth-seeded Zverev, seeking a second tournament title in as many weeks, advanced to the final on Sunday against second-seeded Roger Federer, a 6-3, 7-6 (5) victor over unseeded Robin Haase of the Netherlands. He will face Dutchman Haas in just the second career meeting between the two.

Perhaps it was understandable that the Swiss maestro was a little rusty on this occasion, for this was only his second competitive match since winning an unprecedented eighth Wimbledon. Wozniacki was previously 0-6 in matches against the top players on the women's side, five of which came against Serena Williams, per WTATennis.com.

When match point landed wide, Zverev told Shapovalov during handshakes at the net that the two are sure to meet again and will likely be rivals for many years.

Those self-imposed sanctions included a 2016 postseason ban and recruiting restrictions. Coach Rick Pitino was also suspended for five conference games.

World No.3 Federer secured the decisive first break against Bautista Agut in the ninth game of the opening set and then served out to take control of the match. Shapovalov started slowly by dropping the first set before settling into the match in the second.

The pair played the final last week in Washington, with Zverev winning to claim his fourth title of the season.

The 18-year-old from Richmond Hill, Ont., had his sights set on a place in the top 100 in the ATP rankings this year, but a successful run at the Rogers Cup has guaranteed him a place in the mid-60s - and he's not finished.

All parties must assure North Koreans they we will forego any military action against them if North Korea remains peaceful. It prompted Mr Trump to warn that he would unleash "fire and fury" on North Korea if it did not stop its threats.

"I'm happy, as I knew I would have to play a lot of rallies", said Bautista Agut. "It was a good decision for me".

"It's a big bonus right now and I hope I can play as free as I have so far in the finals tomorrow". You could see that we were both mentally (tired). I know it can't continue that way. "Plus I feel comfortable at the net so why not spend some time up there instead of slugging it out from the baseline?" "I'm just playing better". "But, as I have practised with him quite a bit, maybe I am better prepared than if I would have never hit with him before".

Federer is seeking his 27th Masters 1000 title and his third Canadian Masters crown after wins in 2004 and 2006. Now ranked third in the world, Roger played his first match on hardcourt in the build-up to the season leading to the U.S. Open at Flushing Meadows, New York. "I'm going to try and recover and enjoy the win today before preparing for tomorrow's match".

"It's a huge opportunity for them".
