  • Roger Federer of Switzerland prepares to hit a return against David Ferrer of Spain during day seven of the Rogers Cup presented by National Bank at Uniprix Stadium

Federer, a 19-times grand-slam champion, whose five titles this year include wins at the Australian Open and Wimbledon, credited a positive mindset for helping him extend his winning streak to 16 matches.

It will be just the second career meeting between the two. He dominated at the net, winning 21 of 25 points.

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

Federer 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.

"If I don't save those match points in the first match, there's no chance of being here".

Quarterfinals: At Montreal: Robin Haase bt Diego Schwartzman 4-6, 6-3, 6-3; Roger Federer bt Roberto Bautista-Agut 6-4, 6-4; Denis Shapovalov bt Adrian Mannarino 2-6, 6-3, 6-4; Alexander Zverev bt Kevin Anderson 7-5, 6-4. "But, as I have practiced with him quite a bit, maybe I am better prepared than if I would have never hit with him before".

Federer is 17-0 in his career against the 35-year-old Ferrer, who was ranked third in the world in 2013 but is now at No.33.

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

"I was not as fast".

"Rafa took a lot out of me". Then this kind of eats you up inside mentally. "I started off pretty slow, just drained from (Thursday). My game is better".

Zverev, 20, is the youngest player ranked in the top 20 in the world and Shapovalov became the youngest since 1990 when he reached the quarter-finals of the Masters 1000 event.

In Sunday's final, the Swiss veteran will face the victor of the second semifinal between 18-year-old Denis Shapovalov of Richmond Hill, Ont., and 20-year-old Alexander Zverev of Germany.
