Rogers Cup champion Alexander Zverev to be in action — ATP Beijing

Zverev ended the final hopes of the 143rd world-ranked newcomer, who moved with his family to Canada before his first birthday, with a 6-4, 7-5 victory.

The left-handers exchanged service breaks early in the third set. However, Zverev fought off all three break points in that game.

Federer finally began to hit his spots on serve, while tightening up his game from the back of the court. Shapovalov put Mannarino in trouble with a big serve at 30-30, but he rushed an overhead to give the Frenchman the break point. Zverev has won eight straight matches on hard court. It was the fourth time in five matches he lost the first set, but this time there was no coming back. He broke a mistake-prone Federer for a 4-3 lead and served out the match.

Federer who was playing his first tournament since making a record in Wimbledon alongside Rafael Nadal are set to unseat Brit and World number one at the top of the ATP rankings next week at the Cincinnati Masters.

The German downed a listless-looking Roger Federer 6-3, 6-4 in the Rogers Cup final on Sunday.

Bautista Agut battled Federer closely in the first set before the Swiss picked up at the pace to win it. Federer held the edge in the second set but Bautista Agut was able to hold his head high despite the outcome.

Federer, whose five titles this year include the Australian Open and Wimbledon, credited a positive mindset for helping him extend his winning streak to 16 matches. But he seemed more composed Friday.

"I loved watching Denis play", said the two-time Rogers Cup champion.

"I don't know whether he tweaked his back but after that when he was serving, suddenly the motion went right off". Of course, it was tough until 4-all. My game is better.

"I'm disappointed with today".

"I wasn't the player I was before my injury", Haase said. "We'll have to wait and see now how I feel in the next couple of days". It took a lot of us.

'After vacation and practice, it's always a bit of a shock for the body. "Even though, Zverev is a more experienced player than Shapovalov at this stage".

"This is still a transition year for me".

"Like the media was putting it, it was a dream week for me", said Shapovalov. "He played with the right determination in the important moments". I was not as fast.

"Then this kind of eats you up inside mentally", he said. "But, in general, to make an achievement like this is good because it shows you can do it".
