Post by noleisthebest on Tue Mar 05, 2013 11:44 pm

Some of the draw coming out on Twitter.

So far we know the projected QF:

Djokovic - Tsonga
Federer - Nadal
Murray- Del Potro
Ferrer - Berdych

Murray in Djokovic's half, Ferrer in Federer's.


First round matches of interest:

Hewitt - Rosol , Bellucci - Tomic, Davydenko - HP Mathieu , Blake - Haase

One for the chair umpires in R2, a potential match between JJ and Nalbandian.

Apparently, Murray can take number two spot if he reaches the final and Federer fails to reach the SF.

Federer's projected path:

1st Round: BYE
2nd Round: Istomin (very likely)
3rd Round: Bennetteau
4th Round: Isner or Wawrinka
QF: Nadal
SF: Ferrer or, more realistically Berdych
F: Nole or Murray

A customised draw designed by Larry Ellison for his friends Nadal and Federer..but Nadal in particular.

I'm pretty sure he will play better as it is a master after all and he won it last year, so he'll be more motivated (he still did better at Dubai than Rotterdam after all) but I cannot really see him past Nadal in the QF unfortunately Cry

Good time for predictions.

The draw is ridiculously tailored for Nadal and his QF is given him as a gift from Larry. So, these who have a fancy for Fed with Nadal can celebrate. I expect that Nadal will run as never so if Fed has a chance then he needs serve well. Otherwise no chance that he can hit through him from BL.

Djokovic vs Murray looks to be also quite probable. So my prediction for final is Nole with Morybundus and the winner is nobody else but Nole ATP 1000: Indian Wells 151447854

Worth matches to watch for 2nd round is Gasquet with Tomic. If Tomic can go through Gasquet then I give him a fair chance against Berdych in the possible 3 rd round and also against Feru in QF. Rao should play in 3rd round with Tsonga. So, youngsters have a chance here in BO3, so let's see how the will do.

That's a double OUCH!


I've heard that Pospisil is good but haven't seen him. Shame for Berankis, I still hope he can regroup and not sink. He was so good in AO.

Strakh......if ever there was a proof of a need of a brain in tennis, he is one! I love watching him play, though.

Gulbis playing Rochus in qualies later today.

Something wrong obviously with Berankis. He was hammering everybody in the AO...even got Murray into trouble. Mind or body I dunno but something is bothering him.

Why is Gulbis still going through Qualif? He is 60 something last I checked. What ranking does qualif start?

Tenez, it all depends on when the rankings were considered for the draw and that I am not sure. The thing is, he is 67 this week, coming up 42 places from last week, so had the rankings been done considered as of last week, he'd be 109 and as such is a qualifier...

According to this Gulbis was ranked #67 in ATP and seeded #1 in qualifying. (Look at the bottom of the pdf file).

PS: http://www.atpworldtour.com/posting/2013/404/mds.pdf main draw has Donskoy at #82 as the last direct acceptance at IW. Also this - http://www.bnpparibasopen.com/Players/Player-Landing.aspx

Thanks for your replies you two. So it's still strange that a #82 doesn't have to qualify when a recognised nber 67 has.

Do we know where teh winners are going to be fitted in to the draw? Or is it again done "randomly"?

I'd love to see Blake back....but maybe not at the expense of Tsonga.

I'll try to see a bit of tennis tonight...if I catch something interesting.

Gasquet Tomic shoudl be fun....but maybe not as much as Harrison Nadal...is that the "old"Harrison?

But I feel more strange results are yet to come....Harrison v Nadal....That shoudl be interesting.
