    Tipsarevic advances to Rogers Cup semifinals Janko Tipsarevic ends Marcel Granollers' Toronto run in straight sets on Friday night. Tipsarevic advances to the semifinals and awaits either Novak Djokovic or Tommy Haas.


    Janko Tipsarevic earned a place in his second consecutive Rogers Cup semifinal, ousting Marcel Granollers 6-4, 6-4 on Friday night. Tipsarevic, who cruised past Marin Cilic earlier in the day as the rain-soaked tournament got back on track, prevailed in one hour and 37 minutes.

    Granollers was also contesting his second match in the span of a few hours, having previously dismissed Jeremy Chardy in straight sets. A level playing field for this one featured a competitive match, but one in which Tipsarevic had a slight upper hand the whole time.

    The ninth-ranked Serb saved three break points early in the first set then seized a late break of his own before closing it out on serve at 5-4. A break midway through the second all but sealed the deal. Granollers never came close to getting back on level terms, as Tipsarevic surrendered only seven points in his last five service games.

    Toronto's No. 5 seed finished with five aces and one double-fault while doing a remarkable job with his second serve, winning 81 percent of those points. He awaits either Novak Djokovic or Tommy Haas.
