Garbine Muguruza, Grigor Dimitrov Win 1st Cincinnati Titles

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 U.S. wildcard Sloane Stephens.

The fourth seeded pair of Sania and her Chinese partner Peng Shuai won their match 6-3, 6-7 (1), 10-3 while Bopanna and Ivan Dodig battled past their opponents with a 5-7, 7-5, 10-8 victory in the pre-quarterfinals.

Nick Kyrgios and Grigor Dimitrov will meet in the Cincinnati Open men's final while Garbine Muguruza will face Simona Halep in the women's final.

"To beat the player that is now No. 1, it's very good match always", Muguruza said.

"I felt there was a key game in the second set, the 3-0 game, but I felt very comfortable there, playing against Simona, and also my level was very high".

Muguruza will start among the favourites for the upcoming US Open as she chases a third Grand Slam title.

Romanian Halep, meanwhile, could take over from Pliskova at the top of the WTA rankings if she is able to win the tournament.

"I actually didn't think I played that badly", Stephens said.

Halep, a French Open runner-up for the second time in June, can overtake Pliskova by winning the title in the final major tuneup for the US Open."To be number one in the world I think is a big thing", Halep said. I played three tournaments in a row. "I didn't have chance in the second tiebreak. My friends who were watching were laughing so they liked it I guess".

Muguruza was relentless and her tennis was aggressive, earning her five breaks of serve in the match. On the 14th point of the game, Muguruza broke through and controlled the rest of the set. I knew I was going to be in danger at some point, so I stayed calm. However, as it had all match, the forehand let her down as the Romanian sent it into the net.

"I'm just really proud that I managed to scrap out the win". Halep committed an unforced error on every break point on her own serve except for the one that she saved. "I felt like especially in the second set I could raise it a little bit more and close the match".

It is the same figure as favourite for the US Open. "In important moments, he served really good".

The 31-year-old victor of 10 French Open crowns captured the ATP title this year at Barcelona as well as in Madrid, Monte Carlo and Roland Garros for his 15th Grand Slam crown in June. I mean, he's a type of player that can do anything and can generate unbelievable amount of power from pretty much any position, so I had to be very aware of that.
