Andreescu, 18, will play in her second final of 2019, and she aims to become the youngest victor at Indian Wells since 17-year-old Serena Williams claimed the title back in 1999.
It seems that 2019 will be her breakthrough year after a string of impressive victories over some of women's tennis' top stars saw her overtake Eugenie Bouchard as Canada's top-ranked player.
Kecmanovic, a 19-year-old Serb ranked 130th in the world, became the first lucky loser to reach the quarter-finals at Indian Wells since 1990, but 2016 runner-up Raonic completed a 6-3 6-4 success to move through.

"Today, I believed in myself playing against these top players". Kerber has won three of the four Grand Slam tournaments in her career, including the most recent Wimbledon, and will present a formidable challenge for the upstart Andreescu as the players face off for the first time. "I'm not going to the court with any expectation. I was trying to play concentrated, and going for it when I had the chance", Kerber said.
Andreescu will play the victor of the second semifinal between No. 23 seed Belinda Bencic of Switzerland and No. 8 seed Angelique Kerber of Germany in Sunday's final.
The 18-year-old upset the sixth seed 6-3 2-6 6-4 to become the first wildcard to reach the final at Indian Wells. A backhand down the line victor sent Belinda 3-2 up and she fired a service victor for a hold at 15 in game six and even a more significant advantage. The players then exchanged breaks before Andreescu won two games in a row to go up 5-3.
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. Until Kerber stopped her, Williams had won four matches in a row for the first time since previous year in the desert.
We've run out of superlatives to describe Bianca Andreescu. A forehand return victor sent Bianca 4-3 ahead and she defended three break points in the following game to open a 5-3 advantage and move closer to the finish line.
