Andreescu, Thiem Win BNP Paribas Open Titles

BNP Paribas Open—Indian Wells, California

In one of the best women’s matches you will ever see, 18-year-old rising-star Bianca Andreescu captured the biggest title of her career on Sunday in Indian Wells, California, upending three-time Major winner Angelique Kerber 6-4, 3-6, 6-4.

Needing four match points to seal her victory, Andreescu struck two aces, broke serve on four occasions and won 100 total points to Kerber’s 94.

Losing her serve at 5-3 in the third set, Andreescu called upon all her reserves to close out the match in two hours and 28 minutes.

Improving to 28-3 on the year, Andreescu also took home $1,354,010 for her efforts.

Kerber, who still remains in search of her first Premier level title, remains the reigning Wimbledon champion.


Dominic Thiem capped off a sensational week of tennis in Palm Springs on Sunday, defeating Roger Federer 3-6, 6-3, 7-5 to win the BNP Paribas Open.

Striking one ace and winning 67 percent of his first serve points, Thiem broke serve on three occasions and lost his own delivery twice. Having to overcome the loss of the first set, Thiem began strong in set two by racing to a 4-1 lead. With the third set much closer in score, Thiem used his flat-hit ground-strokes and deep court positioning to outlast his legendary opponent.

Winning his 12th career title, Thiem is now ranked No. 4 in the world.

Federer, who was seeking his 101st career title, also fell in last year’s final to Juan Martin del Potro. Both Federer and Thiem will next play in the Miami Open.
