Daniil Medvedev continued his impressive run at the Rogers Cup, reaching his first ATP Masters 1000 final with a straight-sets win over Karen Khachanov.

Medvedev is yet to drop a set in Montreal and the eighth seed overcame fellow Russian Khachanov 6-1 7-6 (8-6) in their semi-final on Saturday.

The 23-year-old moved into his ninth ATP Tour final – and fifth of the year – but first at Masters level.

Medvedev dominated the first set against Khachanov, losing just three points on serve and breaking twice.

Khachanov twice came from a break down in the second set before giving up a 4-2 lead in the tie-break, Medvedev winning four of the final five points to progress.
