"I think he's starting to be where I think I pictured him being", Kyrgios said. "Finally, this year, I improved that". It's just fantastic. I always like this tournament.

The sixth-ranked Spaniard reached her first U.S. event final by flipping the script in a rematch of their 2016 Cincinnati semi-final. Ironically, the opportunity was there because Muguruza defeated Pliskova in the semifinals.

It's no secret I love Halep's game and think she can go as far as she wants as long as she avoids the occasional drops in confidence that impact her game so much. "During the match the energy was pretty low".

From the start, Muguruza was serving with pin-point accuracy, never allowing Halep to gain any rhythm or control in the points. "I still have a chance, so I will work for it, and maybe one day, it will be there".

Svitolina, who faces Germany s Julia Goerges later, beat Halep in the Toronto final for her fifth title of the year.

Spaniard Muguruza, who had failed to capture a title for more than a year following her triumph at last year's French Open, was now celebrating winning two trophies in as many months as she backed up her Wimbledon victory with her glorious run in Cincinnati. Obviously, a tough schedule for me the last two days - three matches in about not even 24 hours. "Today, there was a lot more on the line for me, so yeah, the weight was a bit more". "So I felt like especially in the second set I could raise it a little bit more and close the match".

"In the big picture, it means a lot to me", Dimitrov said. I played three tournaments in a row. External things were affecting how I was feeling. Though the American would save both, she fell behind 40-AD and a barrage from Halep induced an error to claim the opening break.

She gained a second-set edge with a backhand victor on break point for a 4-2 lead before closing it out in 1 hour, 19 minutes. It was a complete display of tennis from her side with all the parts working together in a smooth manner. And sure enough she made the final.

The second set was almost a mirror image of the first.

"I'm just really proud that I managed to scrap out the win".

Although Muguruza has a 2-1 career edge against Halep, they haven't played in two years.

The Spaniard continued her domination as she swept the second set without opposition.

"I'm more relaxed now", she said after her Cincinnati semifinal win over Sloane Stephens. You're playing opponents that maybe you know less.
