But the backhand of Qualifier is pretty week. Haas just needs to stay away from his forehand and play lots of backhand to backhand rallies. Haas is the slight favorite IMO.
Sure his backhand isn't the greatest, but it is becoming more steady and his slice isn't bad. Qualifier was unlucky not to be seeded but I feel he will be at Indian Wells. Sucks the winner will almost certainly have to play Nadal.
