  • Marvellous Muguruza ends Pliskova hoodoo to reach Cincinnati final

Angelique Kerber of Germany missed out on the chance to move to the summit of the world rankings as she lost 6-4, 1-6, 7-6 to Ekaterina Makarova of Russian Federation.

Grigor Dimitrov also will be playing in his first W&S final after outlasting John Isner 7-6 (4), 7-6 (10) in the first men's semifinal.

Despite the defeat, the 31-year-old Nadal will for the fourth time in his career be the world number one when the ATP rankings come out next week.

"I think I played my best match on hardcourt so far", said Halep, who can become the first Romanian woman to be ranked No. 1. "It's an honour for me to. share the court with her, and happy to be moving on".

"It's an honor for me to walk out on the same court as her, be able to play against her and share the court with her".

"To be No. 1 after all the things I've been going through the last couple years is something unbelievable", Nadal said. The Spaniard had lost six straight matches against Pliskova since winning their first in 2013.

"I was doing what I needed to really well and attacking when I needed to attack", said Keys. I felt pretty good out there - under control.

The WTA Premier 5 event in Cincinnati went through another interesting day.

Garbine Muguruza ended her Karolina Pliskova hoodoo to progress to the Western and Southern Open final courtesy of a classy 6-3 6-2 victory on Saturday.

The 32-year-old Russian, a two-time Grand Slam champion, eliminated Spain's Carla Suarez Navarro 6-2, 6-4. That followed a 2-hour, 18-minute win over Madison Keys on Thursday, when she fought off three match points. So I knew that it would be very tough match. "Stan, I don't think he had a lot of issues", Nadal insisted. "So it was a bad match for me".

Highlighting his long injury-lay off, the 15-time Grand Slam champion said that he is the only one in the top ranked players who has missed the tournament more than anyone else. The Aussie double faulted on the last point to hand Karlovic the first set but forced an errant backhand to win the tie-breaker and dominated the last set.

She said she had been in touch with friends who were safe and added of her gesture of solidarity: "Hopefully it helps". "So I hope to keep it going". "If I don't play well I can't win against a player like Nick". "It was just not a great day". The Bulgarian will play the victor of the semifinal between Nick Kyrgios, who knocked out second-ranked Rafael Nadal in straight sets in a Friday quarterfinal, and David Ferrer.

"I'm just happy to be in the final", said Muguruza. More than nobody else, I know how tough it is.
