Wimbledon champion Garbine Muruguza will face second seedSimona Halep in the final of the Cincinnati Open on Sunday.

With her semifinal win, Halep sits just five points behind World No 1 Karolina Pliskova, who lost to Muguruza in the earlier semifinal.

"Honestly, I was thinking in her situation, it must be hard", Muguruza said.

It was a big disappointment for Halep - the third time this season that she needed one more win to move up to No. 1 and couldn't get it.

Nadal, who won his 10th French Open title in June, was assured of moving into the top ranking on Monday for the first time since July 2014 when Roger Federer withdrew from Cincinnati with a back injury. I'm happy to be there, happy to be in that situation.

The Romanian was a class above Stephens in a classy 6-2 6-1 victory that came in just 55 minutes and she has still not dropped a set throughout the tournament.

Garbiñe Muguruza won her first title in USA soil after demolishing Simona Halep for the loss of just one game at the Western and Southern Open.

"I think she played very solid today, not missing much and obviously serving well".

Kyrgios praised Dimitrov post-match, revealing the Bulgarian had helped him lift out of the mental doldrums after "dragging me out on the practice court".

"I think it was one of the best matches of the year", Muguruza said. I don't know what to say.

Muguruza will play for her fifth career title Sunday against the victor of a later match between Romania's second-ranked Simona Halep and 151st-ranked USA wildcard Sloane Stephens. "From the first point, I felt like I was going to play good tennis".

"I want to win it", Halep said.

"Where I was three weeks ago, it wasn't good at all, and now I'm in a Masters final", Kyrgios said.

Muguruza was coming off playing the tournament's longest match, a 2 hour 45 minute three-set win over Svetlana Kuznetsova on Friday. It was a complete display of tennis from her side with all the parts working together in a smooth manner.

Simona Halep rips a backhand during her finals defeat. "I have just to respond fast and strong with my legs, move well, and just to push her back", Halep said.
