MONTREAL (AP) Angelique Kerber put any concerns about her left elbow to rest Friday in the Rogers Cup.

The second-seeded German player advanced to the semifinals with a 6-2, 6-2 victory over unseeded Russian Daria Kasatkina. And Kerber did it without a twinge from the elbow that forced her to withdraw from a match last week in Sweden.

"My elbow is feeling much better," Kerber said. "I had a lot of treatments when I came here. It's actually better from match to match. I'm not feeling it anymore. Hopefully, it will stay like this."
