  • Simona Halep Montreal 2018

Sharapova had a lot of spunk and great rallies for her French opponent and she combined some good tactics, to lead in the first set 2-all but the Frenchwoman played a patient game and soon leveled the score to 3-all.

"The Frenchwoman now will probably head to Cincinnati but she's said it well at Montreal's pre-tournament interview ".Now I just want to play matches and improve on the court.I haven't reached my goals so far and I want to be better".

Top seed Simona Halep sent Caroline Garcia packing for the second consecutive year at the Rogers Cup in Montreal on Friday with a 7-5 6-1 win to set up a semifinal showdown with Ashleigh Barty on Saturday. Halep has won her past six meetings with the 25-year-old American. Her week included a three hour seven minute win over Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova that was played over two days.

Next up for Halep is Australian Barty, who strolled to a 6-3 6-1 win over Kiki Bertens in their quarterfinal match earlier in the day.

Her latest win means she has claimed eight of her last nine matches on hard courts, though making her third final of the season appears daunting. I think she's a complex player. I played some slices.

A large Romanian contingent waving red and yellow flags chanted Halep's name between points.

A back-and-forth opening set saw Halep jump to a 4-1 lead before Stephens found the range with her forehand and broke service three times to take a 6-5 lead. The American then wasted two set points as Halep forced a tiebreaker.

The world No.16 broke Berten's serve fours times and never faced a break point to book her first-ever semi-finals appearance in Canada.

Stephens led throughout the second set, breaking Halep twice, but the Romanian took control of the third set, turning a break into a 5-2 advantage.

Stephens added three more breaks to take the second set, but lost her serve to open the third.
