Caroline Wozniacki survived three rain delays to book her spot in the WTA Toronto tournament semi-final with a marathon 7–5, 6–7 (3/7), 6–4 victory over world No. 1 Karolina Pliskova on Friday.
The sixth seeded Wozniacki posted her first career win over a number-one player in seven tries as she blasted eight aces in the 2 hour, 56 minute centre court match.
She next faces American Sloane Stephens, who saved three match points in the third set to oust Lucie Safarova 6–2, 1–6, 7–5 in their quarter-final.
Wozniacki will have her hands full with Stephens, who reached the quarters with wins over third seed Angelique Kerber and two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova. Stephens won the last four games and saved three match points to oust Safarova.
