Wozniacki earns Rogers Cup final berth

Elina Svitolina beats Caroline Wozniacki 6-4 6-0 to win Rogers Cup

Halep, the No. 2 seed, beat Caroline Garcia of France 6-4, 6-2 while Svitolina, the No. 5 seed, topped fourth-seeded Garbine Muguruza of Spain 4-6, 6-4, 6-3.

Wozniacki is a 2010 Rogers Cup victor.

The Danish sixth seed jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first set then broke Stephens again to take a commanding 5-1 lead. I didn't really think about it. "But I came here today and I got ready before this match and I'm really proud that I could play so well". Now, we need to change them.

At no point was the Romanian settled into the match, saying that, "from the first game, I started to feel that I have no touch at the ball".

The Toronto final features the women with the most wins on tour this year.

In doubles play, Ottawa's Gabriela Dabrowski and Latvia's Jelena Ostapenko defeated Germany's Julia Goerges and Ukraine's Olga Savchuk 4-6, 6-2, 10-3.


The challenge should be stiffer for both players in the final than it was in the semis. "I just want to give my best, enjoy the match, and try to fight", Halep said.

"I was just trying to play my game and I was very happy to win". She won this tournament in 2010 in Montreal. "If I'm back here in two years, I'll do the same thing".

"Every time this year when it has been raining I've had a great tournament, so I thought this must be luck".

That has, in many ways, been the story of Caroline Wozniacki's 2017.

Plíšková was playing in her first event since moving to the top of the world rankings last month. "It's going to be a good match, I know this". But she's a very consistent player.
