Teenager Bianca Andreescu advances to Paribas Open final with victory over Elina Svitolina

The two-hour, 12-minute triumph was the biggest in a career whose trajectory is soaring and can take another leap forward if she prevails in Sunday’s final. Andreescu, a wild-card entrant here, will face No. 8 Angelique Kerber, who ended Swiss standout Belinda Bencic’s 12-match winning streak with a 6-4, 6-2 decision. “I’m really looking forward to a tough battle,” Kerber, who overcame an early break by Bencic in the second set Friday, said of facing Andreescu. “She’s a great player and I know I’ll have to play my best tennis.”
