WTA Indian Wells Kristina Mladenovic beats Caroline Wozniacki to reach her biggest semi final

"I have so much feelings right now inside of me", Vesnina said after her 6-7 (6), 7-5, 6-4 victory in the final. Painting the lines in the third set, Mladenovic broke twice and served out the two hour 33 minute win.

Kuznetsova, a two-time runner-up at Indian Wells, edged third seed Karolina Pliskova 7-6 (7-5) 7-6 (7-2) in their semi-final.

"It's great that it's a Russian final".

Rising to a career-high 13th in the rankings, one can only hope Vesnina, with an intriguing mix of power and net play, continues her mid-career rise.

When the match ended, Vesnina fell onto her back and covered her face with her hands in disbelief.

But Vesnina wasn't to be denied and she won five of the last six games of the set to level the scores and force the decider. "At the end of the match, I don't know how I won that game from 0-40", Vesnina, who had ousted second seed Angelique Kerber to reach the quarters, said in an on-court interview.

After an exchange of breaks in the second, they went to the tiebreaker, where Kuznetsova again took a 6-2 lead and the increasingly frustrated Pliskova surrendered with a string of errors.

In an all-Russian women's final, Elena Vesnina defeated Svetlana Kuznetsova 6-7 (6), 7-5, 6-4.

"I'm really happy for [Vesnina]". As it was just her third career singles title, Vesnina was thrilled by the win. Stats are clear: 25 winners and 18 unforced errors for Vesnina, 20 winners and 8 errors for Kuznetsova. In the second set Svetlana went up 4-1, but from then the Leopoli native won four games in a row taking advantage of a exhausted Kuznetsova. "And I always kept coming back".

"I think it's a little bit of experience, a little bit of confidence, a little bit of thinking about what you want to do and then just do it without thinking if you're gonna miss or not", he said after Thursday's win over Thiem, per ATPWorldTour.com. "It was a very important match for me". "It's not easy at all".

Roger Federer and Stan Wawrinka will meet in an all-Swiss men's final later.

"In my opinion, he's the best to ever play".
