"I think I played smart tennis today", Halep said.
Ashleigh Barty faces an ominous task to reach the Canadian Open final for the first time after world No.1 Simona Halep also breezed into the semi-finals in Montreal.

Despite Sharapova's good shots, she grew exhausted and started producing unforced errors working in the French woman's favor to help her win the first set 6-3.

Halep, quoted on the WTA website, added: "I just want to give my best tomorrow and to enjoy the final because it's a great thing after a long break to play final at a big tournament". The second set was much routine for Garcia who had the ability to mix up her shots, be aggressive and execute drop shots and volleys to perfection.
