TORONTO — Caroline Wozniacki has advanced to the Rogers Cup final with a 6-2, 6-3 victory over Sloane Stephens.

The sixth-seeded Wozniacki eliminated Stephens in a tidy 83 minutes at Aviva Centre on Saturday. She will play defending champion and second seed Simona Halep of Romania or fifth-seeded Elina Svitolina of Ukraine in Sunday's final.

Wet weather hampered the proceedings at the WTA Tour Premier 5 event for a second straight day. The afternoon semifinal was briefly delayed in the second set.

Wozniacki broke Stephens in the opening game and took the first set in just half an hour.

Stephens, who is trying to regain her form after missing almost a year due to a foot injury, showed flashes of her impressive power game. But she had 41 unforced errors, compared to 11 for Wozniacki.
