Davy is useless at Indian Wells - he's only made the 3rd round once. The ball bounces too high for him, both in groundstrokes and particularly on serve.
Can't see him doing anything at the Aus either, unless he supermans his way through the whole thing and doesn't have to play any long matches. When he made US Open semis in 2007, it was all straight sets (helped by a really easy draw). Roland Garros, he only dropped 1 set to Fat Dave. Add in the nasty conditions in Australia, and you can't like his chances.
