Raonic def. Pospisil 6-4, 1-6, 7-6 (7-4)

In the first-ever all-Canadian semifinal at the Rogers Cup, No. 11 Milos Raonic advanced to the tournament final after a hard-fought win in the third-set tiebreak.

Raonic jumped out in front after winning the first set, 6-4, but he hit a wall in the second set against Vasek Pospisil.

After taking a much-needed bathroom break after the second set, Raonic came back with a strong third set that saw neither player broken.

In the tiebreak with plenty of fans in Montreal on their feet, Raonic defeated Pospisil on a dramatic final point that was one of the best in the entire match.

Raonic will now face either Novak Djokovic or Rafael Nadal in Sunday's final.
