Garbine Muguruza

Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark has upset recently crowned Czech world number one Karolína Plíšková to reach the semi-finals of the Rogers Cup in Toronto. She will play defending champion and second seed Simona Halep of Romania or fifth-seeded Elina Svitolina of Ukraine in Sunday's final.

Caroline's first serve percentage was 64% to Karolina's 56%, and she won 73% of those service points as compared to only 68% won by Pliskova.

Wozniacki was 5-1 down in the first set and 4-2 down in the third, but recovered on both occasions to seal her place in the next round. She used all of that momentum on Saturday against Stephens, playing aggressive tennis from the start and charging ahead to a 3-0 lead, consolidating it with another break for 5-1. But Wozniacki struck again a few games later, and served out the match after a brief rain delay at 5-3.

The sixth-seeded Wozniacki eliminated Stephens in a tidy 83 minutes at Aviva Centre on Saturday. They now face the daunting task of having to play their semi-final later in the day.

Wozniacki, who has the most wins on the WTA Tour this year, is looking for her first tournament title of the year in her sixth final appearance.

"Caroline is not an easy opponent, so I tried everything I could to win today because I really wanted to play semi-finals again today here in Canada". "I just want to give my best, enjoy the match, and try to fight", Halep said.
