Dutchman Haase tops Schwartzman to reach Rogers Cup semifinals

Dutchman Haase tops Schwartzman to reach Rogers Cup semifinals

Haase will face the victor between second-seeded Roger Federer and Roberto Bautista Agut in the semifinals on Saturday.

As a young up-and-coming Canadian tennis player, he was supposed to play for five minutes before Nadal took the court, but the match before took so long there wasn't time. He dominated at the net, winning 21 of 25 points.

"I'm trying not to think about it too much. I got some decent rhythm going".

Shapovalov became the youngest player to reach the tournament's quarterfinals since Bjorn Borg in 1974.

CANADIAN teenager Denis Shapovalov shocked top seeded Rafael Nadal to reach the quarter-finals of the ATP Montreal Masters tournament, spoiling the Spaniard's chances of returning to world number one.

In the quarterfinals, Shapovalov will take on Adrian Mannarino.

Mannarino became the fourth established ATP player this week to fall at the hands of the 18-year-old lefthanded Canadian.

Shapovalov's win came less than 24 hours after a historic upset of first seeded Rafael Nadal. Shapovalov also upset former US Open victor Juan Martin Del Potro in the second round.

Savage said many on the left who are criticizing Trump for his tough rhetoric seem to be siding with Kim. Beijing's appeal came as North Korea said it could reduce the USA mainland to ashes "at any moment".

Neither Shapovalov or Nadal could create separation during the third set that went into a tiebreak.

The Swiss world number three, 36, came from a set behind to beat the Spaniard 4-6 6-4 6-2 and next faces Roberto Bautista Agut, also of Spain, who defeated Frenchman Gael Monfils 4-6 7-6 (7-5) 7-6 (6-2).

But he broke Bautista-Agut's serve in the ensuing game and never looked back.

"It's what I dreamed of all my life growing up, playing guys like Rafa [Nadal], Roger [Federer], Andy [Murray]", Shapovalov said. "But we got to take a picture with him, which was very cool for me".

The 30-year-old Haase, ranked 52nd in the world, improved to 5-0 against 36th-ranked Schwartzman in his career.

Haase has had to overcome several injuries in his career but says he is finally in a good place.

"He played well", Nadal said. Then this kind of eats you up inside mentally. I started to believe more and more again.

Kevin Anderson of South Africa downed American Sam Querrey 6-4, 6-1 and will next play fourth-seeded German Alexander Zverev, who ousted 16th-seeded Australian Nick Kyrgios 6-4, 6-3.
