Svitolina defeated the Comte and reached the quarterfinals of Montreal

The third-round clash was the second match of the day for Konta, who had earlier completed her rain-delayed meeting with two-time champion Victoria Azarenka.

In the third round of the competition planted under 5-m number Svitolina 1 hour 25 minutes defeated Joann Conti from the United Kingdom - 6:3, 6:4, according to UKRINFORM.

Defending champion Elina Svitolina scored a fourth straight win against Johanna Konta to move back into the quarterfinals of the Coupe Rogers on Thursday afternoon, 6-3, 6-4.

And after the restart she was broken once more, with Konta able to take full advantage and seal a convincing win over the world number 110, although Azarenka did force three break points in the final game of the match.

The first was the result of an absolutely stunning away swinger that bowled Murali Vijay off the fifth ball of the day. Anderson then had KL Rahul (eight) caught behind, with India now 10 for two.

'Mourinho at odds with the United board'
Mourinho had an unlikely ally in Moyes who is still looking for a new job after he left West Ham United last season. Neville went on to criticise the United board for failing to back Mourinho and sign a defender he so wished for.

A place in the Coupe Rogers semi-final, Svitolina will play with the victor of the confrontation between the Belgian Elise Mertens and best paired Caroline Wozniacki (Denmark) - Arina Sobolenko (Belarus).

The Romanian battled through three gruelling sets and three hours on court to beat Russia's Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova 7-6 (11-9) 4-6 7-5, but her dismissal of five-time Wimbledon champion Venus Williams was a much quicker affair.

First set Svitolina took due to the break in the fourth game and quality games with the first feed (14 of 17 winning goals, 82%).

Her next opponent will be number six seed Caroline Garcia, who overcame Maria Sharapova 6-3 6-2.
