The title in Montreal has allowed 20-year-old German to start a new week on the status of the seventh racket of the world, and in the title race Asia Pacific Alexander Zverev is second only to Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer.

"I'm sorry that you didn't win Montreal this year", Zverev said to Federer as the crowd cracked up.

Zverev was poised and aggressive off the ground to create space for his power game and displayed some short-angled winners off thumping forehands and backhands to grab an early break for a 3-1 lead.

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 Spaniard is, however, closer because if Federer fails to win Cincinnati the top spot is his.

"Obviously winning the two Masters 1000 events, everybody would be proud of that".

"The week for me was very good, but I am now disappointed as I don't think I played well in the second and third sets", Schwartzman said afterward. "Played against great players, I beat them, and it's just something really fantastic and I am very, very exhausted", said Svitolina, who was playing her third match in two days after rain pushed her quarter-final to Saturday.

Shapovalov's tournament included consecutive wins over 2009 U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro and top-seeded Spanish star Rafael Nadal.

Alexander Zverev used his powerful serve to prevent the 36-year-old Roger Federer from getting into Sunday's final of the Montreal Masters.

Federer responded quickly in the second set, going a break up to lead 3-2 before holding for a 4-2 lead.

Wozniacki, the sixth seed, rolled into the final by cooling off the red-hot Sloane Stephens, the 2010 champion requiring 80 minutes to eliminate the American 6-2, 6-3 to reach her sixth final of 2017.

Federer, who last month secured his eighth Wimbledon crown, had come into the match as the favourite and was looking to claim a third Rogers Cup success. He skipped the clay-court season from April to mid-June.

"I have no words, this is unbelievable", the youngster said.

"I had a bit of muscle pain, aches and pains here and there, just because it's back on the match courts, on the hard courts". I'm most happy that I'm actually really healthy going into the finals.

On the other hand, if the Swiss win, we will see him for the first time at the head of the rankings since 4th of November of 2012.

'Winning two Masters 1000 titles in the same year is something wonderful, ' said Zverev.
