Former champion Wozniacki, who had a trio of rain delays in her quarter-final clash with Czech Pliskova, carried momentum from that win into her match with Stephens, who was playing in only her third event after missing 11 months with a foot injury.

In earlier quarter-final matches on Saturday, Simona Halep continued her quest to defend her Toronto title with a straight sets win, while Elina Svitolina needed three sets to book the last semi-final spot.

Wozniacki was 5-1 down in the first set and 4-2 down in the third, but recovered on both occasions to seal her place in the next round. She won this tournament in 2010 in Montreal. Halep, the No. 2 seed, beat Caroline Garcia 6-4, 6-2 while Svitolina, the No. 5 seed, topped fourth-seeded Garbine Muguruza 4-6, 6-4, 6-3.

Having dropped only one game in her victory over Barbora Strycova, Halep was a convincing victor once again as she eased past Caroline Garcia 6-4 6-2. But I think I'm ready, I feel strong enough in my legs.
