Stephens Cruises To Semis At Rogers Cup


Sloane Stephens continued her strong run through the field at the Rogers Cup in Montreal by defeating Latvian Anastasija Sevastova 6-2, 6-2 on Friday to book a spot in the semifinals.

The third-seeded American has yet to drop a set in her three matches at the tournament. She’s back in the semifinals at the event after losing there to Denmark’s Caroline Wozniacki last year.

Stephens, the reigning US Open champion, struck 18 winners and broke Sevastova five times on her way to victory in 70 minutes.
