Raonic Beats Kecmanovic To Reach Indian Wells Semi-final

Raonic Beats Kecmanovic To Reach Indian Wells Semi-final

However, if we've learned anything from Andreescu's performances in 2019, it's to never write her off. Showing incredible mental strength, coupled with powerful and precise hitting, the 18-year-old broke back three times in a row to turn the set on its head before going on to claim it 6-3. "She's a great player and I know I'll have to play my best tennis".

Andreescu's first win on the WTA Tour came in August 2017 when she beat Camila Giorgi at the Citi Open, and she followed that up with her first win over a top-20 player as Kristina Mladenovic was beaten 6-2 6-3. She may have been unable to take her first three match points, but there were no signs of nerves on the fourth as she forced a mistake from her opponent to seal a landmark win.

Raonic is 2-0 in his career against Thiem, winning both matches in straight sets on hard-courts in 2016.

"I wouldn't believe I win today again", Bencic said. Kerber has won three of the four Grand Slam tournaments in her career, including the most recent Wimbledon, and will present a formidable challenge for the upstart Andreescu as the players face off for the first time.

"I was trying to focus only on my side of the court".

"She changed the rhythm a little bit", Kerber said. "I just tried to play consistent, be aggressive when I had the first chance".

In a far less exciting match, the 8th seed Angelique Kerber took down an in-form Belinda Bencic 6-4, 6-2 in 67 minutes for the place in the 29th WTA final and the first since Wimbledon past year.

A forehand victor secured another break for Andreescu a few minutes later and she grabbed the opener with another one in game nine, moving 6-3 ahead with six straight games and massive momentum on her tally. Kerber eased into her second set quite nicely, dominating her first serve and giving herself eight break points.

Bencic improved to 18-3 this year. In the victory, Kerber won 65 percent of her first serve points and 68 percent of her second serve points. Until Kerber stopped her, Williams had won four matches in a row for the first time since past year in the desert.

Bianca Andreescu of Mississauga, Ont., advanced to the women's semis on Wednesday.
