Simona Halep powered into the final of the Rogers Cup in Montreal where she will play US Open victor Sloane Stephens or defending champion Elina Svitolina in the final.

Simona Halep has won six of her eight previous meetings with Sloane Stephens, including each of the last five.

The Australian No.1 and 15th seed was in complete control over Bertens, who entered the contest with confidence after eliminating top-10 ranked opponents Karolina Pliskova and Petra Kvitova.

"I'm very happy to come through and get a little bit better during the match": Ashleigh Barty.

French Open champion Halep remained on track to reclaim the tournament she last won two years ago with a convincing 6-4 6-1 success.

The French Open champion showed no signs of fatigue following her marathon three-set win over Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova on Wednesday, running down balls to extend points and wear down the slower Garcia.

The 25-year-old US Open champion will look to add her second hard court title of the year after she won the Miami Open in March. "It's just getting confidence and playing good tennis", Stephens said.

Halep will play for the title Sunday against the victor of the semifinal between third-seeded Sloane Stephens and fifth-seeded Elina Svitolina.
