Who is Bianca Andreescu? A profile of the surprise Indian Wells finalist

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 previous year.

"In a few key moments my serve really helped me out", Raonic said on court.

Milos Raonic of Canada plays a forehand against Miomir Kecmanovic of Serbia during their men's singles quarterfinal match at the BNP Paribas Open at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden on March 14, 2019 in Indian Wells, California. In the victory, Kerber won 65 percent of her first serve points and 68 percent of her second serve points.

Standing in her way is Kerber, the 31-year-old German who is the former world No. 1 and entered the tournament ranked eighth. A forehand return victor sent Bianca 4-3 ahead and she defended three break points in the following game to open a 5-3 advantage and move closer to the finish line.

Andreescu missed a match-point opportunity on Svitolina's serve, but then won the next game to finish it in dramatic fashion, fighting off three break points. "Going for it when she put the lob ones and the high ones and the short ones". Kerber has won the last three meetings against Bencic, and all six matches overall have been decided in six straight sets.

Weiss explains that the younger Gotti and Cali had often clashed 30 years ago, and upon his return, reignited their feud. Shea says Cali emerged from his home around 9:15 p.m. after the suspect backed his pickup truck into Cali's Cadillac SUV.

Williams fought off two break points to tie the second set 2-all before Kerber again won three games in a row for a 5-2 lead.

Williams alternately smacked winners from the baseline and sprayed shots beyond the lines.

Bencic was pushed to three sets for the first time in four matches at the tournament. In the third, she overcame a break point to hold at 2-all but only won one more game the rest of the way.

The 18-year-old from Mississauga, Ont., dug deep to upset No. 6 seed Elina Svitolina of Ukraine 6-3, 2-6, 6-4 in a thrilling semifinal on Friday night.

Raonic is looking for his ninth career ATP Tour title, but has never won at the top level below Grand Slams - Masters 1000. Kerber also has a shot to make her first ever final appearance in a Premier Mandatory. "I'm definitely playing how I feel it, and it's going well so I'm not planning on changing that".
