Wozniacki upsets world number one Pliskova in Toronto

Garbine Muguruza

In addition, her quarterfinal was suspended on Friday with Muguruza a set up, so she had to win four sets over two matches on Saturday.

The trend continued in the third set as each player broke in turn before Svitolina eventually held at 3-2.

Second-seeded Simona Halep of Romania needed only 59 minutes to breeze by Barbora Strycova of the Czech Republic 6-1, 6-0 while American Sloane Stephens upset third-seeded German Angelique Kerber 6-2, 6-2.

Stephens, who was coming back after a foot injury, had her first match win in a year in the first round of the tournament. Svitolina hopes to win her fifth title of the season and her ninth title of her career.

"I thought she started off really strongly and she was attacking and playing really, really well", Wozniacki said.

Wozniacki will be opposed in the final in the Ukrainian Elina Svitolina.




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. But Federer made a decision to play and now has a chance to add to a tally that includes Australian Open and Wimbledon titles this year. The 27-year-old won the Rogers Cup in 2010 at Montreal, one of 25 titles over her impressive career.

While Svitolina has been ideal in finals this year, Wozniacki has lost six consecutive finals and seven straight dating back to last season.

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. So I tried just to have a better feeling in the end of the match but.

The 10th-seeded Pole did not help her cause by putting just 49 percent of her first serves in play over the course of the one-hour, 18-minute match. To reach the championship match, she had to beat the No. 1 player in the world, Karolina Pliskova, in the quarterfinals Friday.

"That's really the way I think". So I just had to really think of that.
