Federer squandered a matchpoint in the second set and let the 39-year-old a way back into the match. Haas is playing his farewell season and will face Mischa Zverev in the quarter final.

Haas later said that he was speechless. “Playing Roger is always special, especially on grass. There are a lot of emotions when you are playing a close friend,” said Haas, “When you come into the second set, save a match point and then come back, that always makes you very happy about a win. I am shocked myself.”
