Indian Wells: the draw

06.03.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

The draw for the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells is out. Roger will either face Denis Istomin (ATP 43) or a qualifier in the opening round. After that he could meet Julien Benneteau (ATP 28), against whom he lost at this year's tournament in Rotterdam. An encouter with Stanislas Wawrinka (ATP 18) or John Isner (ATP 15) is possible in the following round, before our champ could play Rafael Nadal (ATP 5) in the quarter finals.

Good luck Roger, wish you all the best.

Here are some observations on Rogers 2012 win in Dubai, Indian wells and Madrid.

Dubai: Murray Def Djoko in SF .. Roger won title
Indian wells: Isner Def Djoko in SF .. Roger won title
Madrid: Tips def Djoko in QF ... Roger Won title

This year Djoko is undefeated and won all tournaments he entered. I don't see anyone upsetting Djoko before QFs. Things look tough but Roger is capable of achieving anything :) Go Fed Go!!!

Hi, Rog. Overall, I think you have a good draw compared to last year's . You and your family were even sick last year and you won the trophy! I was in CA and watched the whole tournament. Very impressive, esp when you beat Nadal; that bathroom break Nadal took at matchpoint. And you aced him to win the match when he came back!!! And the win against Isner! Good luck . Looking forward to watching you play.

I agree with Seetharam (nice name) that if you win, you will avenge ALL the players in one time, Benneteau (ATP R'dam), Isner (final last year), Berdych (ATP Dubai), Nadal (AO 2012, etc.), Murray (AO 2013) or Djoko (WTF 2012).

Tough draw, but this could be your chance to show them ALL how good you still are, that you will not retire, that you are not done, that they cannot underestimate you, that you still can win and THAT YOU ARE THE ONE AND ONLY GOAT !!!

Good luck, your die hard fan, Kemn

A tough draw, but never mind. Rotterdam and Dubai are history and playing against Bennetau is indeed good, because you and your coaches can make the most of the recent match's analysis.

Go for it, champion! Hope to see you rising the trophy!
