Former champion Caroline Wozniacki cruised into the WTA Toronto final with a 6-2, 6-3 victory over American Sloane Stephens. Wozniacki, the 2010 champion, needed 80 minutes to eliminate Stephens and reach her sixth final of 2017. Stephens, who is ranked 934 in the world, was playing in just her third tournament after missing 11 months while recovering from foot surgery. She beat Petra Kvitova, Angelique Kerber and Lucie Safarova to reach the semi-finals. Wozniacki's road to the semi-finals included a victory over world number one Karolina Pliskova. The Danish sixth seed jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first set then broke Stephens again to take a commanding 5-1 lead. After breezing through the first set, Wozniacki let a 3-1 lead in the second slip away as Stephens levelled at 3-3. Wozniacki regained the momentum and after a brief rain delay she served out the match at 5-3.
