Rogers Cup: Caroline Wozniacki advances to semis

Through to her fifth final of the year, after winning titles in Rome, Istanbul, Dubai and Taiwan, Svitolina will meet former world number one Caroline Wozniacki in the decider.

Prior to Friday's win, Wozniacki was 0-6 in matches against the world's top-ranked player, having lost five times to Serena Williams and once to Dinara Safina.

The Spaniard had taken the first set before the rain arrived on Friday night, meaning both remaining last-eight showdowns were held over until Saturday morning local time.

Stephens, who's trying to regain her form after missing nearly a year due to a foot injury, showed flashes of her impressive power game but mistakes proved costly.

Karolina Pliskova advanced to the quarterfinals at the Rogers Cup on Thursday when Japanese qualifier Naomi Osaka was forced to retire because of an injury.

"That's really the way I think".

With her latest title, the ninth of her young career, Svitolina has checked most marks before turning 23, except for putting herself in position to become a Grand Slam champion.

The delays, which all came during the first set, appeared to boost the sixth-seeded Dane, who was trailing 3-0 when the match was interrupted.

Earlier in the day, Halep beat Caroline Garcia of France 6-4, 6-2, and Svitolina topped fourth-seeded Garbine Muguruza of Spain 4-6, 6-4, 6-3.

In doubles quarter-final play, Ottawa's Gabriela Dabrowski and Latvia's Jelena Ostapenko dropped a 7-5, 6-3 decision to the third-seeded Czech duo of Lucie Safarova and Barbora Strycova.

"It has been a really great year", Wozniacki said after improving to 46-15 on the season. So I tried just to have a better feeling in the end of the match but. "To be in this final once again, it really feels awesome and I feel like I have been playing really good tennis".
