Denmark’s Caroline Wozniacki cruised to a surprisingly easy 6-3, 6-1 victory over Poland’s Agnieszka Radwanska at the Rogers Cup tennis tournament here.

Wozniacki will next take on Czech world No.1 Karolina Pliskova in the quarter-finals here on Friday, reports Efe.  Virat Kohli  Others Meet The Great Khali, Gets Trolled by Rohit Sharma

In a match-up of two of the best WTA players never to have won a Grand Slam title, Radwanska had her serve broken a whopping six times in eight service games.

The 10th-seeded Pole did not help her cause by putting just 49 percent of her first serves in play over the course of the one-hour, 18-minute match.

Wozniacki, the No.6 seed, will square off in Friday’s quarter-finals against Pliskova, who is making her debut as the top-ranked player in Toronto. The Czech was leading Japan’s Naomi Osaka 6-2, 6-7(4-7), 1-0 when her 19-year-old opponent retired with an abdominal injury.  Ravindra Jadeja Credits MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli for Rapid Rise in Tests

Czech Lucie Safarova topped Russia’s Ekaterina Makarova 6-3, 6-7(3-7), 6-2 and now awaits the winner of a round-of-16 match pitting German No. 3 seed Angelique Kerber against American Sloane Stephens.

Fifth-seeded Ukrainian Elina Svitolina will play ninth-seeded American Venus Williams in the featured match, with the winner to take on either Spanish reigning Wimbledon champion and No.4 seed Garbiñe Muguruza or Australian qualifier Ashleigh Barty.  Ravindra Jadeja Spends Time With Ravi Shastri and Support Staff After One- Match Ban
