Haase's hilarious moment with pro-Federer crowd

 

Robin Haase drew a massive ovation from the Montreal crowd with a cheeky dig during his semi-final clash with Roger Federer.

Late in Federer's straight-sets victory on Sunday, Haase was preparing to serve when the humorous moment occured.

"Let's go Roger," someone from the crowd yelled out.

The pro-Federer crowd appreciated Haase's lightning quick wit and gave him a big round of applause.

However it was the only moment of joy for the Dutchman as Federer marched into another final.

Federer used a dominant service game to beat Haase 6-3 7-6 (5), setting up a Rogers Cup final against German Alexander Zverev, who ended the giant-killing run of hometown hero Denis Shapovalov.
