Konta sets up Cincinnati quarter-final with Halep

Konta sets up Cincinnati quarter-final with Halep

The Spaniard had lost six straight matches against Pliskova since winning their first in 2013. Rafael Nadal couldn't do the same.

Pliskova as leading Italian Camila Giorgi 3-0 when play was suspended due to rains.

Sixth seed Caroline Wozniacki saw off Australian qualifier Ashleigh Barty 6-4 6-2.

"The first match helped me a little bit to have some rallies already today", Pliskova said.

Nadal got only halfway there. Obviously, a tough schedule for me the last two days - three matches in about not even 24 hours. It was tied 5-5 when there was another 10-minute delay.

"Everyone is very, very sad", Nadal said. "I didn't play well".

Halep would overtake Pliskova and claim the world number one ranking for the first time in her career by winning the Cincinnati crown. "I had some chances in the second set", Pliskova said. "For me, it's an fantastic achievement".

"I think she played very solid, not missing much and obviously serving well. To all the victims, the families, friends - all my support". Dimitrov needed only 52 minutes to beat Yuichi Sugita 6-2, 6-1.

In later men's semi-finals, Australia's Nick Kyrgios will face Spaniard David Ferrer and American John Isner will meet Bulgaria's Grigor Dimitrov.

Konta took the first set with two breaks of serve to one and looked to have the match well under control when she broke at the start of the second set. He closed it out with a 136 miles per hour ace, one of his 25 in the match. "I'm going to go with that". The Wimbledon champion survived another tough challenge on Friday, beating Svetlana Kuznetsova 6-2, 5-7, 7-5.

"And now another very, very hard match", Nadal said as he left the court. "I think the energy was pretty low from my side". I just feel good.

Muguruza won when Pliskova sailed a forehand long on the fifth match point. The Romanian has reached at least the quarterfinals of her last 11 tournaments.

She said after the game; "You never knew who was going to win until the last point". Svitolina faces Germany's Julia Goerges later. "It was just not a great day". "I'm ready to get dinner and get in bed because I'm so exhausted".

Simona Halep cruised past wildcard Sloane Stephens to set up a Western and Southern Open final against Garbine Muguruza and close on the world number one spot on Saturday.

Muguruza will play for her fifth career title Sunday against the victor of a later match between Romania´s second-ranked Simona Halep and 151st-ranked U.S. wildcard Sloane Stephens. I could move well. "It's back. So I'm positive again".
