Nadal battles back to defeat Fognini and advance to Montreal semis

Top seed Rafa Nadal overcame a sluggish start to defeat Fabio Fognini 2-6 6-1 6-2 and keep his title defence alive at the Rogers Cup in Montreal yesterday.The Spaniard will face either Gael Monfils or Roberto Bautista Agut, whose match was suspended due to rain, Nadal initially had a more tricky time in his quarter-final against Fognini, struggling with his serving accuracy in a first set where the Italian broke him twice.

But Nadal broke to love in the second game of the second set on a double fault by Fognini, who appeared to be bothered by right ankle soreness as the nearly two-hour match wore on. Nadal broke serve to start the deciding set and never looked back as he took a measure of revenge against Fognini, who defeated Nadal in the final of the Monte Carlo Masters in April.
