Saturday’s semifinal action at the National Bank Open saw No. 4 seed Jessica Pegula reach the finals after ousting world No. 1 Iga Swiatek 2-6, 7-6(4), 6-4.

Pegula, who has been one of the the most consist performers on Tour, will next face either No. 3 seed Elena Rybakina or No. 15 seed Liudmila Samsonova.

At the men’s event in Toronto, Alex de Minaur continued his sensational summer by advancing to yet another final. The 24-year-old eased past Spaniard Alejandro Davidovich Fokina, and will next face either No. 7 seed Jannik Sinner or unseeded American Tommy Paul.

Paul ended the hopes of top seed Carlos Alcaraz on Friday evening.

Sinner advanced past Frenchman Gael Monfils in three sets during an entertaining night session encounter.
