Canadian teenager Bianca Andreescu continued her incredible breakthrough this year by beating Elina Svitolina in a brilliant Indian wells semi-final.
The 18-year-old, who is only at the tournament due to a wildcard, beat a top-50 ranked player for the ninth time this year to claim a 6-3, 2-6, 6-4 success. “This is so incredible,” Andreescu said in her on-court interview. “This past week has been a dream come true. (I have loved) playing in front of amazing crowds like you guys.” She continued, “Today I just believed in myself. I’ve watched these top players so many times on TV so it’s really incredible to play against them – and win!” Her win was even more remarkable for the poor start to the match she endured.
