Becoming a fighter pilot? For the second straight year, Bencic partnered the famous Swiss Roger Federer at the Hopman Cup, and again won the title.
The 13th seed's serving accuracy was not as precise as it has been, with just over half of his first deliveries finding the target, but when he was able to get one in play the Canadian won 88 percent of those points. "I think that can get better".
At one point, when Andreescu claimed an energy-draining point via a powerful overhead shot to force deuce on Kerber's serve, the commentator on DAZN asked 'is there anything she can't do?' such was her swagger on the court. He just needed to convince her that she had the fight, that she had the strength, that she had to go for every point. Her feet felt torched and she said she was having trouble moving on the court.
Indian Wells might be the breeding ground for women's tennis breakthroughs. Kerber's experience will challenge Andreescu's boldness.
German star Kerber was a class above as the eighth seed accounted for Bencic 6-4 6-2 at the WTA Premier tournament in California on Friday.
"To be honest, I felt the moment when she stood up from her chair - the energy was there", Bruneau said Monday. Her previous title this season came in January at a lower-level WTA 125K Series event in Newport Beach, Calif.
Apple’s iPad range (almost) makes sense now
The expectation had been that, as new pen-enabled iPads arrived, Apple would shift to the newer Pencil, but that hasn't happened. The new iPad mini also has an advanced Retina display with True Tone now, and it will support the Apple Pencil as well.
The mayor of Mississauga, Andreescu's hometown, called Sunday's match "monumental".
Before hitting the pro tour, Andreescu was an excellent junior.
Andreescu will earn US$1.354 million if she wins the final and $686,000 if she loses.
Against Svitolina, Andreescu was almost ideal in all the crunch moments.
Born in Canada, Andreescu later moved to Romania with her parents and first started playing tennis.
Gun show in NZ cancelled over Christchurch attack
A government-funded gun buyback and a virtual ban on owning semi-automatic rifles cut private gun ownership by nearly a third. Islamic tradition calls for bodies to be cleansed and buried as soon as possible after death, usually within 24 hours.
Urged by her coach at the changeover to push through, Andreescu dug deep.
Kerber reached the final by overcoming the red hot Bencic who defeated world number one Naomi Osaka this week and was coming off a win in Dubai last month.
Andreescu: It starts in practice.
Metro UK tennis writer George Bellshaw tweeted about the "unbelievable scenes" of Andreescu breaking when it mattered most to go up 5-4 in the third and give her the chance to serve for the match, which she did - despite Kerber adding to the drama by saving three match points. All that's left to do is wait for her next act.
Svitolina, the 2017 Toronto Rogers Cup champion, responded with a break to tie the third set at 3-3. "Eighteen is a good age because she's done the whole junior thing and gone to tournaments in places like Japan where there's the whole language thing and you're away from home".
Liverpool won't spend big on transfers, claims Klopp
While not the sexiest stat in football , or indeed our game, the defender buoy's his weekly totals with them to terrific effect. There is the good feeling you get from winning in the style that we did (in Munich), the confidence going into the weekend.
