LONDON — Canada’s Eugenie Bouchard is moving on to the women’s singles final at Wimbledon.

She defeated Romania’s Simona Halep 7-6 (5), 6-2 today at the All England Club.

Bouchard, from Westmount, Que., is the first Canadian to reach a Grand Slam women’s singles final in the Open era.

The 13th-seeded Canadian will next face sixth-seeded Petra Kvitova.

Kvitova beat fellow Czech left-hander Lucie Safarova 7-6 (6), 6-1 in the early semifinal.

Another Canadian is in the final four of the men’s draw — Milos Raonic of Thornhill, Ont., will take on Switzerland’s Roger Federer in semifinal play Friday.

More coming.
