That's where Svitolina was Friday night in her quarterfinal match against Kiki Bertens and she rallied to win the first set and the match.

Barty - who faced Halep for the first time in her career - could only convert one of seven break-point chances and racked up 37 unforced errors, winning just 29 per cent of points on her second serve.

Stephens defeated defending champion Elina Svitolina 6-3 6-3 in the afternoon session, breaking her five times to reach the final without having dropped a set through the tournament.

The Ukrainian eventually locked on in the ninth game to take a break of her own, but the burst was short-lived and she again lost her serve and with it the set.

Ukrainian tennis player Elina Svitolina completed her performance in the tournament Rogers Cup, which he won a year ago. I played some slices. "I think now, just kind of taking it all in stride, trying to play my best, compete, get a lot of matches under my belt".

"Every time I play her, she makes me a better player, she makes me raise my level".

"Then I just went all the way on her forehand - short, cross, long, everything".

"I thought I played well, I thought she played well, " Stephens said.

"I saw that (Saturday) I play at 1 p.m. (ET). I feel like I've done that pretty well this year", she said.

"I've been playing well and it's a good start here to the US Open Series". Due to rain delays, she then had to return that same day to play Venus Williams, also pulling double duty, who she beat 6-2 6-2.

Preparing for the U.S. Open, Stephens also reached the event semifinals previous year in Toronto.

However, with her fourth match point, Halep produced an ace down the middle to settle a gruelling encounter. Making the finals here is incredible.

With the win Stephens advances to her second consecutive Rogers Cup semifinal after falling to Caroline Wozniacki a year ago.

"That's a great thing for me. Yeah, it's disappointing, but I think this will help me moving forward, getting ready to go into [Cincinnati] and the U.S. Open". But since then, Halep has recorded five wins on the bounce, including in Washington and Cincinnati a year ago on similar courts.

Another poor service game from Halep though gave the initiative back to Stephens, who broke for 5-5 and then held for a 6-5 lead.
