This Andreescu lady is a feisty one! Only 5'7 (170cm) but great court coverage anyway. And when it doesn't go her way she doesn't go "woe is me", but instead she gets angry. That's the spirit! :)
 
Svitolina not going down easy.
Yeah, nice battle this. Andreescu is making quite a few more unforced errors than on that 6 game run, so she's letting Svitolina back in. She did recover very well after that crazy long point around 2-2. I thought for a moment there that we had seen the end of her stamina. Alas, no such luck for Svitolina! :)

I love that you love Bianca.
One minor suggestion, if you don't mind, is that you just give her straight-up congrats.
Would you say, "This Tsitstipas gentleman is a feisty one!"? I'm guessing not. I'm guessing you would have simply said, "Tsitsipas is feisty!".
You don't need to call Bianca a lady. Just describe her as the athlete she is.

Again, my apologies for calling you out for 'dancing around' your congratulations. You are many steps ahead of most of us. So...thank you.

Hey! This flyingboris dude is a foreign one. He not so good with words be.
 
The youngster makes it! She looked a little hobbled there at the end. I had the sound off (was on a call), did they comment on what that was? Cramping?

Anyway, she looks super thrilled. Nice!

Not a great last set there from Elina. Served poorly, missed opportunities playing passive on break points and never got to grips with that lob ball tactic all match. Andreescu is clearly a great talent but for Svitolina big opportunity gone. Having said that it was a good run for her on that pace of court. I would be surprised if Bencic doesn't win this event from here but anything can happen.

Bianca Andreescu is in the final of Indian Wells! Congratulations to a Canadian of Romanian nationality!

The seminal has just FINISHED:
B. ANDREESCU(WC)626
E. SVITOLINA(6)364

To me Bianca is the feminine Federer of WTA!
Svitolina didn't do much, except defending and hanging on, the whole match was on Bianca's racquet.
She can change directions like Halep, but she also has power and finesse (drop shots, lobs, slices etc).
It was fun to see Svitolina loosing the power exchanges, on both wings, but especially on the BH side. Svitolina even told her coach as much during on court coaching...
Once Bianca builds her fitness even more she will move to greater things, like GSs!

This is Kerber’s first final since winning Wimbledon. Definitely hasn’t had the greatest results since then. Until this week her only other SF since Wimbledon was Doha last month. Kinda crazy she could be so close to #1 but at the end of the day she does hold a slam and could leave Indian Wells with a Premier Mandatory title too.
