Angelique Kerber v Bianca Andreescu: BNP Paribas Open final preview & best bet
Wimbledon champ Kerber can thwart Indian Wells wild-card Andreescu
Women's final - BT Sport 1, 8pm Sunday
Bianca Andreescu made history when becoming the first wildcard to reach the Indian Wells final following her BNP Paribas Open semi-final defeat of Elina Svitolina.
But while the Canadian is already one of the hits of the season, Andreescu may find Angelique Kerber a bridge too far in their title-decider.
The fact that Kerber is as big as 4-6 to lift the trophy tells you how much respect the oddsmakers have for Andreescu.
They may be right to be wary of the outsider, who was 200-1 before the California tournament started last week, but Wimbledon champion Kerber looks to be coming to the boil nicely after a quiet start to the campaign.
Whatever happens in the final, Andreescu will have enjoyed her Tennis Garden experience immensely but her price looks a little short for her first big trophy clash.
Kerber dashed the hopes of Dubai champion and 66-1 shot Belinda Bencic 6-4 6-2 in the last four, while there were rumours that Svitolina was not 100 per cent fit in the run-up to her 6-3 2-6 6-4 loss to Andreescu.
