Sublime Svitolina Wins Two To Earn Final Berth Against Wozniacki In Toronto Final

Elina Svitolina staying positive during Rogers Cup run

It's not going to be easy; I'll be playing against a very good opponent. "The hotel is not so far, so I was just going to think about this (quarterfinal) match first and give it everything I have". I once I kind of got on a roll, I started serving better.

Wozniacki will face the victor of Saturday night's semifinal between defending champion and No. 2 seed Simona Halep of Romania and No. 5 seed Elina Svitolina of Ukraine.

All of the delays came in the first set and Wozniacki seemed to gain encouragement as she bounced back from 3-0 down. Svitolina, meanwhile, has a WTA-high four tourney championships this year, including a 6-4, 6-2 win against Wozniacki in this year's Dubai final on a hard-court surface like Toronto.

"I just tried to stay steady, tried to take the ball on the rise and try to stay aggressive when I could and keep my serves aggressive too".

Wozniacki, the 2010 champion, needed 80 minutes to eliminate Stephens and reach her sixth final of 2017.

The 36-year-old is on a 16-match winning streak, his longest since 2012.

Stephens, who is ranked 934 in the world, was playing in just her third tournament after missing 11 months while recovering from foot surgery.

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

Wozniacki also will have the advantage of having more rest heading into the early afternoon final. "She's strong there and she played her game".

Wozniacki will play defending champion Simona Halep or Elina Svitolina for the championship on Sunday at Toronto's Aviva Centre. So it's really tough to analyze the game. It's just tough to play her in these conditions.
