World No. 2, Romanian tennis player Simona Halep advanced on Saturday to the semifinals of the WTA Rogers Cup in Toronto, after defeating France's Caroline Garcia 6-4, 6-2.

Defending champion Halep claimed the victory in one hour and 11 minutes, securing 122,190 dollars in prize money and 350 WTA points. She is next to play seed No. 5, Ukraine's Elina Svitolina on Saturday evening.
