AUSTRALIAN 15th seed Ashleigh Barty has reached the semi-finals of the Montreal WTA tournament, reeling off nine of the last 10 games to defeat giant-killer Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands 6-3 6-1.

Barty was the more composed player in difficult, windy conditions as Bertens, who had seen off ninth seed Karolina Pliskova and eighth-seeded Petra Kvitova in her previous two matches, was undone by 31 unforced errors in the 55-minute quarter-final.

Barty has reached the semi-finals on her Montreal debut having made the last 16 when the event was held in Toronto last year.

“It was really tricky conditions and we were both struggling a little,” Barty said in her on-court interview.
