Andreescu's explosive attacks and unpredictable shot choices had endeared her to the Indian Wells crowd in a week in which she saw off a series of higher-ranked players including Garbine Muguruza and Elina Svitolina.
"I started off really, really slow", Andreescu said in her postmatch news conference Friday night, after asking the media to allow her a moment to stop shaking and compose herself.
And Kerber forced the Canadian to continue to work hard in the fourth game, registering a break on some Andreescu unforced errors for the 3-1 advantage.
"It's always tough to play against Belinda".
"I don't really want to focus on the future right now".
Instead, she'll open by telling the story of the first set of her first match of the tournament. "He can do a lot of good things, get ahead in the point, and start to run you around a lot if he has time to get into a point and work it".
The 18 year old's BNP Paribas Open championship victory had made history many times over: already the first wildcard to contest the Indian Wells final, was also the tournament's youngest victor since 17-year-old Serena Williams' win over Steffi Graf two decades ago.
"When you're confident you can just trust your instincts and you dont have to think about it at all". Of course, now it's been a few steps more.
"Today, I believed in myself playing against these top players". The pressure seemed to weigh on the 31-year-old after winning her first grand slam in 2016 at the Australian Open, and her second at the U.S.
"She knows she has the big serve and big groundstrokes", she said of her friend and practice partner Pliskova. "Physically it was tough, and the wind didn't help much".
The teen had three match points on her serve before trying one of her patented drop shots.
"At that point I was really exhausted, so I went for my shots more, and that obviously worked. But otherwise, yeah, not even close to my good tennis".
Perhaps surprisingly, Bencic leads their head-to-head 3-1, but the Swiss wins came when she was still a teenager, and Kerber won their most recent, in Wimbledon past year. Considering Bianca Andreescu is playing an exceptional received in Kerber, she will have to improve her serve since it is a weakness which the German superstar is exceptional at exploiting. Kerber's superb defense kept her in the match long enough to gain the confidence to begin dictating points. It will be not an easy match.
Not being 100 percent fit is nothing new for Andreescu who missed six months in 2016 with stress fractures in her foot and was sidelined past year with back problems. Both players are appearing in their first Indian Wells semifinal. Then she made three semifinals - the only semifinal appearances of her career - and is now ranked No. 60. "I'm not going to the court with any expectations I'm just trying to play".
