Roger Federer turned in a precision performance at the ATP Montreal tennis, using thundering serves and clever backhands to defeat unseeded Robin Haase for a spot in the final. Federer blasted nine aces and lost just nine points on his serve, beating Netherlands Haase 6-3, 7-6 (7/5) in just 75 minutes. "I'm very excited to be back in the finals," Federer said. "A bit surprising, to be quite honest, because I hadn't practiced much. Confidence can get you a long way, and if you're feeling fine physically and you are ready to fight mentally you have a lot of things in the bag," said Federer, who would earn the second seed at the upcoming US Open if he wins in Montreal.
