Two-time champion Simona Halep advances past Coco Gauff at National Bank Open


Two-time champion Simona Halep has moved on to the semifinals of the National Bank Open.


The Romanian player dispatched Coco Gauff of the United States 6-4, 7-6 on Friday.


The 30-year-old Halep won the title in 2016 and 2018 when it was still called the Rogers Cup.


She'll face the winner of the quarterfinal between American Jessica Pegula and Kazakhstan's Yulia Putintseva.


Halep is now 4-0 in singles matches against Gauff on the WTA Tour.


The quarterfinal between Halep on Gauff on Friday was the only one at the National Bank Open with two seeded players. Gauff is the tournament's 10th seed and Halep is 15th.
