Stephens rallied to within 5-4 before Halep, on her fourth match point, slammed her third ace of the match and dropped to her knees in triumph.
Halep won her third title of the year and 18th overall.
"If you look at the schedule, I think I'm the only one person and player who has the worst schedule during the week", the French Open champion told the Montreal Gazette.
"I think once I get on a good run at a tournament, I'm pretty consistent, pretty solid", said Stephens.

"Just going to kind of take it all in, realize I did a good job this week, and I can be proud of myself for that".

"That's a great thing for me". A superb backhand down the line gave her set point, which she converted to win the 72-minute opener.
"Leading up to the U.S. Open, obviously past year it worked pretty well".
