Roger Federer advanced to the Rogers Cup final with a 6-3, 7-6 (5) victory over unseeded Robin Haase of the Netherlands on Saturday afternoon.
The second-seeded Federer is seeking a third Rogers Cup title to go with wins in 2004 and 2006. A victory would give Federer, currently ranked third in the world, one of the top two seeds at the U.S. Open that begins Aug. 28 in New York.
The 36-year-old, coming off victories in Germany and at Wimbledon, is on a 16-match winning streak, his longest since 2012.
In Sunday's final, the Swiss veteran will face the winner of the second semifinal between 18-year-old Denis Shapovalov of Richmond Hill, Ont., and 20-year-old Alexander Zverev of Germany.
Haase, who upset seventh-seeded Grigor Dimitrov in the third round, was in his first career semifinal of a Masters Series tournament. He earned US$220,760.
In a doubles semifinal, seventh-seeded Rohan Bopanna of India and Ivan Dodig of Croatia defeated sixth-seeded Raven Klaasen of the Netherlands and Rajeev Ram of the United States 4-6, 7-6 (8), 11-9.
