RE: Weeks 10-11 - ATP Masters 1000 - Indian Wells, CA, USA (Hard)


8pm UK time tonight - much better for me, though not necessarily for Andy - 1pm will probably be very hot.

I've been nearly demented trying to watch Andy and also Kyle's livescore. First set to Andy 6-3, he is playing well.

*2-1 up in the second. Assuming he goes on to win, it will be Djokovic in the semi as Tomic has pulled out.

Andy saved a few break points, but held. Then Feli did the same - *3-2

Fails to do it, but that's what insurance breaks are for. . . This time, Andy, please.

So what do we want tomorrow between Raonic and Nadal. A win for Nadal and Andy is guaranteed 4th spot in the rankings or a win for Raonic to help Andy catch Nadal for the No 3 spot but risk dropping to 5 if Raonic goes on to lift the title ?

This will be Andy's 21st ATP Masters 1000 SF ( 3rd at IW where he has never won the title ) and indeed his first Masters SF since he beat Ferrer for the Miami title almost 2 years ago.

It now represents his best ever ranking points start to a year from the first two mandatories ( even putting earlier years onto the current points basis ) at so far 1200 + 360. Add in contributing two wins in GB being through to a Davis Cup QF and not too shabby at all.

QF: (4) Andy Murray WR 4 beat (12) Feliciano Lopez (ESP) WR 12 (= CH) 6-3 6-4

SF: (4) Andy Murray WR 4 vs (1) Novak Djokovic (SRB) WR 1

Re the Nadal vs Raonic QF match, since Andy's top 4 seeding is secured for Miami, because of Fed's absence, I would prefer to see Raonic win. At this stage, although I think Raonic is rather underestimated in some quarters, I still see Nadal as the more short to medium term adversary in rankings and as an opponent.

I hope Raonic wins, because I don't think he'll have a chance of passing Fed in the SFs.
