Raonic ends Kecmanovic run, reaches Indian Wells semi-finals

Raonic ends Kecmanovic’s dream run, reaches Indian Wells semis

Milos Raonic was at his efficient best on Thursday afternoon, beating Serbian lucky loser Miomir Kecmanovic 6-3, 6-4 to reach his fourth BNP Paribas Open semi-final in Indian Wells.

Standing between Bencic and a second straight final will be Angelique Kerber of Germany, who defeated Venus Williams of the United States in another quarterfinal. "I learned a lot, and I have been implementing what I have learned throughout this whole tournament".

She started out the year fully confident as ever, and has carried this assurance through her matches since that time.

Game on, indeed. The second set began frantically, with three breaks of serve in the opening four games. So far this year, Andreescu has more wins than any woman on tour - 27 after Friday night - and before this tournament she had only two career wins over top-20 opponents.

"This is definitely the fittest I've ever felt".

"No pressure", Andreescu said, joking. Andreescu's returning was very strong as she broke Svitolina's serve on 6 occasions.

Canadian youngster, Bianca Andreescu has made it into the final of the 2019 WTA Indian Wells Open in California. I actually never feel like I'm getting tired-or more exhausted than my opponent on the court. "She played really tricky - in the good way - it was really hard for me to play my game". Then she made three semifinals - the only semifinal appearances of her career - and is now ranked No. 60. In the third, she overcame a break point to hold at two-all but only won one more game the rest of the way.

"This moment has become a reality so it's really, really insane", Andreescu told the crowd before speaking a bit of Romanian.

"It will be completely different match tomorrow", Kerber said of Bencic. "I really enjoy the semifinals here - it was already twice here, and I'm really happy to be in the final for the first time now", she added.

Andreescu's explosive attacks and unpredictable shot choices had endeared her to the Indian Wells crowd in a week in which she saw off a series of higher-ranked players including Garbine Muguruza and Elina Svitolina.

Andreescu bounced back, putting away a smash to set up her fourth match point before Kerber's backhand error ended it after 2 hours and 18 minutes.

"I'm really looking forward to a really tough battle". Considering Bianca Andreescu is playing an exceptional received in Kerber, she will have to improve her serve since it is a weakness which the German superstar is exceptional at exploiting.

"It's incredible", she beamed when told of the achievement. After I spoke to my coach I just let it all out there.
