Raonic ends lucky loser Kecmanovic's run

Lucky loser loses

Thiem is through to the semifinals at Indian Wells for the first time, having reached the quarters once before in 2017.

Raonic will face No. 7 seed Dominic Thiem in a semifinal on Saturday after No. 18 seed Gael Monfils of France withdrew from his quarterfinal against the Austrian, leading to a walkover on Thursday night. This will of course cast doubts on his inclusion in the main draw of the Miami masters.

Eighth seed Angelique Kerber defeated Venus Williams in emphatic fashion to reach the semi-finals of the BNP Paribas Open on Thursday. "I think that can get better".

Though she lost serve to begin the second set, Kerber rebounded immediately as the two traded breaks twice in the second set, before she won the last three games to seal the match and her spot in the final.

Andreescu will play the victor of the second semifinal between No. 23 seed Belinda Bencic of Switzerland and No. 8 seed Angelique Kerber of Germany in Sunday's final. "I'm not going to the court with any expectation".

Belinda Bencic upset fifth seed Karolina Pliskova 6-3 4-6 6-3 to reach the semi-finals of the women's event and ensure that she will return to the top 20 in the WTA rankings on Monday. "In the first set I was moving everywhere and when I have the chances to move her".




She had to fight for the lone break of the second set as Williams saved four break points to hold for 2-2 and saved four more in the sixth game before Kerber finally converted one for a 4-2 lead that would stand up the rest of the way.

Mari Osaka, a year-older than her 21-year-old sister who has shot to the top of the rankings thanks to back-to-back Grand Slam titles at the U.S. and Australian Opens, has twice played in WTA doubles made draws, most recently with Naomi at the 2017 Toray Pan Pacific Open. She broke Williams in the match's longest game that went to deuce five times when Williams' forehand went wide.

Raonic is looking for his ninth career ATP Tour title, but has never won at the top level below Grand Slams - Masters 1000.

"I wouldn't believe I win today again", Bencic said.

Kerber has won the last three meetings against Bencic, and all six matches overall have been decided in six straight sets.

In the semi-final, she is set to face in-form Belinda Bencic of Switzerland, who reached this stage after a 12-match winning streak, including a quarter-final win over Karolína Plíšková.
