Same hotel as before? Wozniacki has signed a two-break in the first set, but his rival has won it in his second ball round, there will also be a strike that is too deep in the Danish.

Wozniacki had to battle several rain delays, with four in total causing problems on Friday, but she was able to maintain her composure and secure a 7-5 6-7 (3) 6-4 victory. The obvious question with Svitolina is how much she has left in the tank after playing two matches on Saturday. The afternoon semifinal was briefly delayed in the second set.

"Played against great players, I beat them, and it's just something really awesome and I am very, very exhausted", Svitolina said.

Two other quarterfinals were postponed until Saturday.

Ukraine's Elina Svitolina beat Caroline Wozniacki in straight sets to win her fifth title of the year and condemn the Dane to a sixth final loss in 2017.

Wozniacki, a 27-year-old former world No. 1 from Denmark, varied her shots throughout the match, combining power with more looping topspin returns. But she's a very consistent player. "Even my serves, even some of the groundstrokes".

"I thought she started off really strongly and she was attacking and playing really, really well", Wozniacki said. Svitolina in 31 minutes, winning six games in a row and scored his third career title on the WTA Premier.

Federer is looking for a third Rogers Cup title but his first in Montreal, having won in 2004 and 2006 in Toronto. "She's putting everything back, so obviously, I did some mistakes", said Pliskova. But Federer made a decision to play and now has a chance to add to a tally that includes Australian Open and Wimbledon titles this year. With the World No. 1 up next, Wozniacki will be put to the test.

"I just tried to stay steady", she said. I was used to the lefty serve so that helped me a bit.

Both players held serve through the second set with Pliskova pulling even in the match by taking the last four points of the tiebreaker. The Russian dispatched her quickly as Williams lost in straight sets 2-6, 1-6.

"Today, I was very focused and I learned a lot from that experience, which of course was very painful".

But Svitolina, ranked one spot above her opponent at fifth in the world, then firmly took control as she reeled off eight games in a row.
