Roger Federer. Always Roger Federer. The god of tennis has reached his 142nd career final at the Rogers Cup against the likely future dominant of men's tennis, Alexander Zverev. Federer comes into the final, the sixth of his amazing 2017 season, beating rivals like David Ferrer, Roberto Bautista Agut and Robin Haase.

Zverev has eliminated opponents like Richard Gasquet, Nick Kyrgios and Denis Shapovalov. Like Federer, this is Zverev's sixth final this year and the second in an ATP Masters 1000. They have played each other before this year, at the Hopman Cup and at the Gerry Weber Open in Halle.

In Halle, Federer gave a hard tennis lesson to his young rival as he won his ninth title. This is the fourth challenge between Federer and Zverev. The Swiss leads their in the head-to-head 2-1. He has also been in dominant form this week.

So, it is clear that the favorite for the final is Roger Federer. In women's singles, Caroline Wozniacki will challenge Elina Svitolina. The Dane has played five finals in 2017, but lost all five.

Will she reverse the trend? It will be tough because Svitolina has played four finals this season and has won all four. For Wozniacki, this is the 47th career final and for the Ukrainian tennis player, it is her 11th. In her path to the final, the former world no.

1 eliminated players like Agnieszka Radwanska and current world no. 1 Karolina Pliskova. Svitolina has beaten tennis players like Venus Williams, Grabine Muguruza and Simona Halep. This is the third clash between the two tennis players; in the head-to-head, Svitolina leads 2-0.

Difficult to make a prediction, but for how strangely 2017 has been going, the percentages are 60% Svitolina, 40% Wozniacki! ALSO READ: Maria Sharapova withdraws from Cincinnati with a forearm injury .
