Sloane Stephens

American Sloane Stephens shocked third seed Angelique Kerber to reach the Rogers Cup quarter-finals in Toronto.

Former world number 11 Stephens missed nearly a year of action because of a foot injury before returning at Wimbledon last month.

But she defeated Germany’s Kerber 6-2 6-2 in 58 minutes to reach the last eight after beating number 14 seed Petra Kvitova in the previous round.
