Djokovic and Gasquet reach Toronto final
Novak Djokovic is on course to defend his Rogers Cup title
Defending champion Novak Djokovic will face Richard Gasquet in the final of the ATP Rogers Cup after both players enjoyed straight-sets victories in Toronto on Saturday.
Top seed and world number two Djokovic overcame Janko Tipsarevic 6-4 6-1, breaking his fellow Serbian in game 10 of the first set and then cruising through the second.
Frenchman Gasquet, seeded 14, advanced with a 7-6 (7/3) 6-3 triumph over American eighth seed John Isner.
The world number 21 said on www.atpworldtour.com: "The key of the match was to return well, and I did it. I tried to return all the time to make him play.
"Then I like to defend. But of course I had to do a big tie-break, and I did it. I played incredible in the tie-break and then I felt well."
Gasquet will on Sunday be aiming to clinch his first title in Toronto, having finished runner-up to Roger Federer six years ago on his only previous appearance in the final.
