Earlier Thursday, Aryna Sabalenka of Belarus, China's Qiang Wang and Australia's Ashleigh Barty advanced to the semi- finals after eliminating Dominika Cibulkova, Olympic champion Monica Puig of Puerto Rico and Russia's Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, respectively.
Semi-final duels are scheduled for Friday, with WTA stating: "Ashleigh Barty is the only seeded player still standing and faces a tough encounter with Aryna Sabalenk."
The other semi-final clash will be pitting Kontaveit against Wang; both have never previously played against each other, according to the WTA website.
