Janko Tipsarevic claims he was overly focused during his Rogers Cup semi-final loss to Mardy Fish.

Janko Tipsarevic believes that he channeled his focus in the wrong direction during his Rogers Cup semi-final defeat to Mardy Fish.

World number eight Fish advanced to the final with a 6-3 6-4 victory over the Serbian in Montreal and Tipsarevic has declared his disappointment at his performance.

"It's been a great week for me but I am really not happy with my performance today," said the world number 46.

"I didn't feel tight before the match and I didn't have the feeling that this was the biggest match of my career, I wasn't nervous.

"I just felt I was too focused on fighting for every point rather than being focused on what I needed to do on court."

The 27-year-old has yet to win a title during his career.
