August 12, 2017 -- Montreal, Canada
In front of an enthusiastic crowd, Roger took the court against Robin Hasse today in the semifinals of the Rogers Cup.
Making quick work of the first set, Hasse played closer in the second, pushing it to a tiebreaker where Roger dominated to win the match 6-3, 7-6(5).
"I'm happy -- most happy that I'm actually really healthy going into the finals," he said. "I haven't wasted too much energy. I've been able to keep points short. I've been really clean at net. I think my concentration and just my playing has gone up a notch. I'm just playing better." Roger will face ATP Next Gen star, Alexander Zverev, tomorrow in the finals.
