Roger Federer is through to the semi-finals of the men's event

Halep and Svitolina won rain-delayed quarter-final matches early Saturday, hours before their semifinal.

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

After being blown out in the semifinals of the Rogers Cup at the hands of Elina Svitolina, defending champion Simona Halep was at a loss for words.

She jumped into a 3-1 lead in the second set before allowing Stephens to rally back. "But I came here today and I got ready before this match and I'm really proud that I could play so well".

EPA/WARREN TODACaroline Wozniacki of Denmark celebrates her win over Sloane Stephens of the US after their semi-final match in the Rogers Cup Women's Tennis tournament in Toronto, Canada, 12 August 2017. "I have put myself in great positions and, you know, I'm going to try and make the most of it (on Sunday)". They now face the daunting task of having to play their semi-final later in the day.

The sixth seed carried the momentum from her win over Pliskova into the match with Stephens, who was playing in only her third event after missing 11 months with a foot injury.

After the match, Halep struggled to explain what went wrong.

"In Paris it was very hard to have that, but I think it's also the experience", Svitolina said. "I was just 100% on every ball and I think I just learned from that experience that I need to play to the last point and just one point at a time". "I need some time to analyze this day (Saturday) and then move into final (Sunday), which is really soon".
