Halep & Svitolina round out semifinal matchups in Toronto

Simona Halep I could not feel the ball

Speaking after the victory, the 27-year-old said: "Almost every tournament I've played this year there has been a rain delay so at this point I just have to laugh because I feel like it is following me".

But she had 41 unforced errors, compared to 11 for Wozniacki meaning there was only ever one victor.

Wozniacki was previously 0-6 in her career against reigning World No. 1 players.

Wozniacki will face the victor of Saturday night's semifinal between defending champion and No. 2 seed Simona Halep of Romania and No. 5 seed Elina Svitolina of Ukraine. "But I came here today and I got ready before this match and I'm really proud that I could play so well".

The Romanian, who is looking to keep the pressure on world number one Karolina Pliskova after she lost to Caroline Wozniacki on Friday, took the first set following a late service break and then wrapped up victory after moving ahead with two more early breaks against the Frenchwoman to win 6-4 6-2.

Halep said she is confident her legs will hold up when she faces Svitolina later in the day for a spot in the final.

Wozniacki, the 2010 champion, needed 80 minutes to eliminate Stephens and reach her sixth final of 2017.

"I was just trying to play my game and I was very happy to win. And I think it was closer than what the scoreline showed". I have just to move on and to look forward.

"She's having a good year as well - injury free and playing really well", Svitolina said. I will try to recover quickly because it was a very tough day not only physically but mentally.
