  • Wozniacki advances in Toronto epic

Later Thursday, fifth-seeded Ukrainian Elina Svitolina defeated American Venus Williams 6-2, 6-1, and Spain's Garbine Muguruza dispatched Australian qualifier Ashleigh Barty 6-0, 3-6, 6-2.

And on Saturday, it was Wozniacki who found comfort in a straight-set win as she sent Stephens packing with a tidy 6-2, 6-3 triumph.

The world number two seemed keen to move on, saying, "it's just this match that I will forget it very fast for sure. I didn't even think that I could".

Romanian second seed Halep swept past France's Caroline Garcia 6-4 6-2 in the last of the quarter-finals. Both Svitolina and Halep played twice Saturday as their quarterfinal matches were delayed due to rain Friday.

Wozniacki will next take on Czech world No.1 Karolina Pliskova in the quarter-finals here on Friday, reports Efe.

He was badly, badly concussed after those rounds. The ropes kept him up multiple times. They know what happened last week.

Stephens, who is trying to regain her form after missing nearly a year due to a foot injury, showed flashes of her impressive power game.

This was Svitolina's fifth title of the WTA Tour season. She won the final eight games of the match as Wozniacki struggled with her serve throughout. "I guess it's a give and take sometimes and just that I keep myself in these situations is awesome". Svitolina had to battle hard to pull out the win against the world number 4, but she dug deep when it mattered. "I just kept hanging in there and I thought we both played a really good match". "I'm just very happy that it's finished - and with a title, it's even more special".

Wozniacki has reached five finals this season and now holds the No. 6 position. But she had no answers against Wozniacki, whose defensive game undid her attacking all court play. Sometimes you've just got to wait and see how you feel.

Wozniacki was playing in her sixth final of 2017 but the 2010 Rogers Cup champion has yet to come out on top following losses at Doha, Dubai, Miami, Eastbourne and Bastad. "To be in this final once again, it really feels incredible and I feel like I have been playing really good tennis".
