Wozniacki earns Toronto final berth


Caroline Wozniacki reached her sixth WTA final this season with a 6-2 6-3 win that ended the resurgent Sloane Stephens‘ fairytale run at the Rogers Cup in Toronto.

Still fresh off her comeback after an 11-month injury and surgery layoff, the 934th-ranked Stephens had eliminated Grand Slam champions Angelique Kerber and Petra Kvitova en route to the semifinals, before falling in two straightforward sets to the sixth-seeded Wozniacki, who survived a rain-tortured marathon against world No.1 Karolina Pliskova yesterday.

Wozniacki will try to finally claim a title this season against the winner of Saturday evening’s semifinal between defending champion Simona Halep and Elina Svitolina. The second-seeded Romanian and the fifth-seeded Ukrainian won their rain-delayed quarterfinal matches early in the day, the former beating Caroline Garcia 6-4 6-2 and the latter eliminating fourth seed Garbine Muguruza 4-6 6-4 6-3.


  1. Emman Damian, yeah, an excellent tournament. Sloane reached her first Premier 5 semifinals playing just her third tournament since the long injury layoff.
