Federer in final: Roger Federer continued his longest winning streak in five years by reaching the Rogers Cup final.

The second-seeded Federer used a 6-3, 7-6 (5) victory over unseeded Robin Haase of the Netherlands on Saturday to reach his sixth final of the year and win his 16th consecutive match.

He had considered skipping the event, which would have been disastrous for the promoters with world No. 1 Andy Murray as well as Novak Djokovic and Stan Wawrinka already out with injuries.

Wozniacki advances: Caroline Wozniacki cruised into the Rogers Cup final with a 6-2, 6-3 victory over Sloane Stephens on Saturday.

Wozniacki eliminated Stephens in a tidy 83 minutes at Toronto’s Aviva Centre.

Wozniacki, the No. 6 seed, will play either defending champion and second seed Simona Halep or fifth-seeded Elina Svitolina in today's final.

Hornish prevails: Sam Hornish Jr. dominated in his home state to win the XFinity Mid-Ohio Challenge on Saturday.

Hornish, from Defiance, Ohio, took the lead from rookie Daniel Hemric on lap 62 of 75 after the seventh caution at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. He beat him by 1.335 seconds.

Wallace wins: In his first NASCAR Truck Series race in three years, Darrell Wallace Jr. looked as if he had never left.

Wallace held off a late challenge from Christopher Bell to win Saturday at Michigan International Speedway. After taking the lead in his No. 99 Chevrolet with about 10 laps remaining, Wallace had to contend with Austin Cindric and Bell toward the end. He was able to edge Bell by 0.176 seconds.

Red Wings angry: The Detroit Red Wings said Saturday they are considering legal action to stop white nationalists from using their logo as part of a "disturbing" rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The team said in a statement it "vehemently" disagrees with the rally and is in no way associated with it. The logo of the NHL club could be seen on items held by people at the rally.

Beach Patrol wins: Beach Patrol won the Arlington Million on Saturday, snapping a six-race skid and earning a berth in the $4 million Breeders' Cup Turf this fall. Fanciful Angel, a 73-1 shot, finished second.
