Next opponent Elina Svitolina in Montreal will be the victor of the match between Johanna Contoy and Victoria Azarenka (6:3, 3:0, interrupted).

Konta, who was leading former world No 1 Azarenka 6-3 3-0 on Wednesday before rain forced an overnight delay, returned to wrap up the match in comprehensive fashion 6-3 6-1.

Svitolina assisted Buzarnescu before the medics eventually appeared and escorted her away from the court.

In addition to disrupting air traffic control, the incident also caused alarm among locals, many of whom recorded the incident. One witness filmed the plane doing a large loop-the-loop, which they first thought was part of an air show rehearsal.

But Konta could not continue her momentum as she squared up against number five seed Svitolina in Montreal.

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).

World No 1 Simona Halep fared better with her double-header, winning both her matches. Svitolina had reached the third round when her Romanian opponent Mihaela Buzarnescu retired from their match on Tuesday with the score 6-3 6-7 (5-7) 4-3.

The Ukrainian No.1 was never taken to deuce and surrendered just three points behind her first serve overall in the set, and looked to be on course for an uncomplicated win as she was the first to break in the second set.

Maria Sharapova also beat the odds in emphatic style with a 6-0 6-2 win over number 12 seed Daria Kasatkina.
