Naomi Osaka inspired Bianca Andreescu to claim Indian Wells title

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

"Hopefully this moment can be a great inspiration for many young athletes because like I always say if you believe in yourself anything is possible", Andreescu said afterwards in her on-court interview. The next couple of games, I did the same thing.

"I've watched all these players play on TV so many times, so it's surreal to be able to play against them in front of awesome crowds at such prestigious tournaments".

Meanwhile, Dominic Thiem edged error-prone Roger Federer 3-6, 6-3, 7-5 to win the men's final, denying Federer a record sixth title in the desert.

Pegged as a player to watch after a strong junior career, Andreescu has all the tools for success on the main circuit.

She's projected to rise 36 spots to No. 24 in the WTA Tour rankings on Monday.

Kerber was the last of five seeded players that Andreescu knocked off in her seven matches. She reached the girls' singles semifinals at the 2016 US Open and the 2017 Australian Open, and won the Aussie Open and French Open girl's doubles titles in 2017, with Carson Branstine.

"Yeah, it's been a insane ride. So it's insane what a year can do", Andreescu told reporters after her 6-4 3-6 6-4 win.

Bruneau stepped away from Fed Cup captain duties past year to focus on coaching Andreescu and others in the Canadian women's program. "And now to be able to have my name in front of so many fantastic champions is, it means the world to me", said Andreescu. It would be all she needed to take the set without facing a break point herself.

What we know about Boeing 737 MAX crash and what comes next
The Seattle Times said the company's safety analysis of the MCAS system had crucial flaws, including understating power. The spokesman, Mike Trevino, said Boeing never followed up to explain why that deadline passed without an upgrade.

She broke Kerber in the next game, taking a 15-30 lead with a lovely drop shot-lob combination, and giving herself a break point with an overhead victor before converting with another forehand victor to launch a run of three straight games for a 5-3 lead. But the German repeatedly held the surging Canadian off before going ahead 2-1.

Kerber won the next two games, breaking Andreescu to go up 3-2.

The teen had three match points on her serve before trying one of her patented drop shots. And the German was 1-for-1 in break chances while the Canadian was 0-for-2. She had already received treatment in the right arm and shoulder area. Bruneau calmly encouraged his pupil to continue battling and competing. "Maybe my opponent will play unbelievable", said Andreescu.

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. And upon capturing the victory, she kissed the playing surface then laid on it before acknowledging the crowd.

"A year ago, during this period, I had been struggling a lot with my tennis and with my body, too". I just want to enjoy this moment because I don't want to take anything for granted. But I don't really want to focus on the future right now.

Thiem trailed 4-3 and 5-4 in the third set before breaking Federer with a forehand victor to go up 6-5. Two forehand winners quickly into the rally moved the Canadian two points from the match. She really began to shorten the points and broke back with an overhead and forehand victor. "He's such a legend".

Not being 100 percent fit is nothing new for Andreescu.
