Spain International and World number two Rafael Nadal who is the defending champion of the Rogers Cup title has beaten Fabio Fognini to move into the semi-finals of the competition in Montreal.
Nadal is seeking a fifth Rogers Cup title after he started slowly before dispatching the Italian with a 2-6 6-1 6-2 win.
He will now tackle Gael Monfils or Roberto Bautista Agut, who will return on Saturday to complete their rain delayed match – Monfils was 30-0 up in the first game when play was suspended.
Russian pair Daniil Medvedev and Karen Khachanov meet in the other semi-final.
“It was an up-and-down match, but a positive match for me because I played better and better as it went on,” Rafael Nadal said.
Eighth-seeded Medvedev breezed past Austrian second seed Dominic Thiem 6-3 6-1 while Khachanov overcame German number three seed Alexander Zverev 6-3 6-3.
