Rogers Cup: Caroline Wozniacki advances to semis

The Dane has been the tour's most winningest player, amassing 46 wins against just 15 losses, but in each of her five previous finals she has fallen.

Caroline Wozniacki has advanced to the Rogers Cup final with a 6-2, 6-3 victory over Sloane Stephens. She will play defending champion and second seed Simona Halep of Romania or fifth-seeded Elina Svitolina of Ukraine in Sunday's final. The contrasting styles of Caroline Wozniacki's grinding defense against Karolina Pliskova's all out aggression was played out in favor of the grinder this time.

Stephens showed some fight-back late in the set, taking advantage of a brief letdown from Wozniacki - whose backhand started to misfire - to get a break back.

The sixth seed claimed a 7-5, 6-7, 6-4 victory at the Aviva Centre in the Canadian city to record her first win over a world number one.

The first set witnessed a spectacular change in fortune when Caroline Wozniacki, down 1-5, won six games in a row to win 7-5.

The pair took to the court early Saturday morning after Friday's rain delays forced the quarter-finals to stretch into a second day.

After beating Spain's Rafael Nadal yesterday, the 18-year-old wild card entry overcame Frenchman Adrian Mannarino 2-6, 6-3, 6-4.

"It's not going to be easy, at this level, to play two matches in the same day".

"I'll be playing against a very good opponent".
