Federer reaches last eight in Halle, injury concern for Nishikori

Top seed and eight-time champion Roger Federer defeated Karen Khachanov 6-4, 7-6 (5) on Saturday to advance to the final of the Gerry Weber Open for the 11th time.

Federer, 35, has yet to drop a set after four matches in Halle this week, although his victory over the rapidly rising talent of the 21-year-old in their first meeting was a huge test of his credentials.

"After I got that in the bag I was really able to start to relax and really play and feel the way I want to feel out there".

Trump to announce plan to stop cash flow to Cuban military
However, Trump will stop short of breaking diplomatic relations restored in 2015 after more than five decades of hostilities. Russia's Foreign Ministry said in a statement Sunday that Trump is "returning us to the forgotten rhetoric of the Cold War".

Two of them, Alexander Zverev and Richard Gasquet face off in the second semi-final of the day in Halle.

Mayer and Zverev may have the backing of the German fans in Halle, but Federer can never be counted out. To reach this level, Zverev (12) beat 6-7 (6/8), 7-6 (7/1) and 6-1 to Spanish Roberto Bautista, while Gasquet 6-1, 3-6, 6-1 over Dutch Robin Haase.

Gasquet will now play the victor of the last quarter-final between local favourite Alexander Zverev and Spaniard Roberto Bautista-Agut later on Friday.

The inauguration of President Trump did nothing to hinder the evolution of this program, the Post reports. At that point, the outlines of the Russian assault on the USA election were increasingly apparent.

Zverev got himself out of a hole by saving three break points before levelling at 5-5 in a tight opening set, but two sumptuous backhands from the top seed made the difference in the breaker. Khachanov is simply playing some of the best tennis of his life right now and will have a shot in this match if he continues to win a high number of his service points. "It was a hard match", he added.

He then converted his first match point. In the quarterfinals, he played a unusual match against Robin Haase, which also featured one of the shots of the season, when the Dutchman hit a victor with a reversed racket face. Mayer, who won the title previous year, ousted Lucas Pouille in three sets.
