Young Canadian player of Romanian origin reaches Indian Wells semifinals

Indian Wells Open 2019: Bianca Andreescu dominates Garbine Muguruza en route to semifinals

"So just one of those days", Shapovalov said.

Last on and first off was the surging Andreescu.

In just 52 minutes on Wednesday, she dismantled two-time Grand Slam champion Garbine Muguruza of Spain 6-0, 6-1 to move into Friday's women's singles semifinals. A week later, after making it to the final in Auckland, New Zealand, Andreescu was 107th in the world. The top half was rocked by the upsets of Djokovic and No. 3 seed Alexander Zverev.

However, 19-year-old Denis Shapovalov couldn't make it a Canadian sweep. Tournament organizers in Indian Wells rewarded Andreescu by giving her a wild card into the event.

"It's incredible what I've achieved the last couple of months".

"I just went out there and went for it", she told reporters after the match. I'm, like, 'No way.' I know she's good, but love and one?

The win over Muguruza, now ranked 20th, followed a victory over 18th-ranked Wang Qiang of China in the fourth round and took her win-loss record to a remarkable 26-3 in 2019, including qualifying matches.

"She does like pace, so I tried not to give her a lot of that today", observed Andreescu.

Canadian 18-year old tennis player Bianca Andreescu has had a fairytale run at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells this year, where she reached the semifinals.

He was remanded without a plea until his next scheduled appearance in the South Island city's High Court on April 5. None of those arrested had a criminal history or were on watchlists in New Zealand or Australia .

Interest shot up even more Wednesday when Andreescu steamrolled over Garbine Muguruza of Spain, ranked 20th in the world and the victor of two Grand Slam tournaments. Serena Williams was the last in her return to the desert in 2015.

Andreescu broke Muguruza at love and then served out the match after a deuce game, hitting consecutive forehand winners. Andreescu appeared to be in danger of giving that advantage back when she fell behind 0-40 with a 3-2 lead, but then won five straight points for a huge hold.

"I just stayed focused right from the start".

"I had a good day". "I believe in myself, because I believe anything is possible".

The 18-year-old Canadian will play the biggest match of her career - a semi-final in the WTA premier mandatory tournament in Indian Wells - tomorrow. In 2017, he lost to Novak Djokovic in the final.

Next week, Andreescu, Shapovalov and Raonic will head to the Miami Open, another major tournament.

Raonic will play lucky loser Miomir Kecmanovic of Serbia in a Thursday quarter-final. And now Shapovalov and Auger-Aliassime have each other. Eugenie Bouchard of Westmount, Que., also may have to qualify, unless there are two more withdrawals before qualifying starts early next week.

Ranked 60th in the world, Andreescu outplayed Muguruza in every facet of the match. Therefore, she will be in the main draw.
