Wozniacki to face Svitolina in Toronto final

The Danish Caroline Wozniacki has disposed of the American Sloane Stephens in two sets of 6-2 and 6-3, Saturday in Toronto, in the semi-finals of the Rogers Cup.

Wozniacki eliminated Stephens in a tidy 83 minutes at Aviva Centre.

Wet weather hampered the proceedings at the WTA Tour Premier 5 event for a second straight day. Osaka had to retire from the match after winning a second-set tiebreaker with an abdominal injury.

Wozniacki advances in Toronto epic

Entering the final, not only was Svitolina unblemished in finals in 2017, Wozniacki was the exact opposite (0-5), which some would argue influenced the match going from an even affair at four games apiece into a runaway that saw Svitolina win the final eight games.

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 22-year-old could become world number one if results go her way at next week's Cincinnati Open. "Today was very hot, so I've been really struggling".

After the invasion of Poland by Nazi Germany in 1939, Mr Kristal and his family were moved into the Lodz ghetto. He immigrated to Israel in 1950 with his second wife and their son, and continued his confectionary business.

The former world number one has now lost all 12 sets in the finals she has played this season, a loose forehand ending her hopes on this occasion. After that, I feel like I stepped a little bit closer to the line just to try and take away a little bit of time.

Pliskova still managed to secure a break in the fifth game of the deciding set, but Wozniacki scrapped to deny a double-break, holding from 30-30 in the seventh.

Stephens did not have high expectations for this summer and was quite pleased to reach the final four. But she had no answers against Wozniacki, whose defensive game undid her attacking all court play. From that point on, playing with poise and confidence, she took over the match. I have many tournaments ahead. I have just to move on and to look forward.
