The former World No 5 came on the court late in the evening after hours of rain delays to inflict a 6-3, 6-2 win over Italian second seed Camila Giorgi.

Bouchard set up a semi-final Friday with world number 37 and third seed Dominika Cibulkova of the Slovak Republic.

“I’m happy I was able to have a lot of energy considering how long we waited today,” Bouchard said.

She said staying mentally prepared for the match during the frustrating rain delays was one of the toughest challenges.
