Wozniacki has had a big week, beating a world No. 1 for the first time on Friday when she knocked off Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic in the quarterfinals.

Having dropped only one game in her victory over Barbora Strycova, Halep was a convincing victor once again as she eased past Caroline Garcia 6-4 6-2.

The pair will play twice in a day after rain disrupted the schedule.

Halep defeated Frenchwoman Caroline Garcia 6-4, 6-2 while fifth seeded Svitolina rallied from a first set loss to beat reigning Wimbledon champion Garbine Muguruza 4-6, 6-4, 6-3. It's not going to be easy; I'll be playing against a very good opponent.
