Indian Wells Q2: (19) Ramon Delgado (PAR) def. (4) Daniel Brands (GER) 6-3 6-4

This is the same guy who beat (#1) Pete Sampras in straight sets at the French Open 2R some 12 years ago, and (#9) Sebastian Grosjean in 5 sets at the US Open 2003.

This win should see him back to his highest ranking since mid-2007. He fell well outside the top 400 in mid-2009 (due to injuries), now already he is playing top 100 level-tennis again. Good win today!

Hopefully he gets a good draw here to regain his top 55 ranking...he is a great legend of Paraguayan tennis

PAW Entry Ranking: 37
Highest PAW Ranking: 13

Winner: Sydney 10, Casablanca 09, Costa Do Sauipe 09, Vienna 08
Finalist: Miami 09
Semifinalist: Bastad 11, Belgrade 11, Delray Beach 11, Brisbane 10, New Haven 09
Quarterfinalist: Wimbledon 11, Queens 11, Houston 11, Brisbane 11, Cincinnati 10, Bastad 10, Costa Do Sauipe 10, Montreal 09, Gstaad 09, Bangkok 08, Budapest 08

Daniel Brands.

Good work Delgado, always nice to see players regaining form after long lay offs with injuries.

Awesome stuff from Ramon, just fantastic. Seems his win in Asuncion last year really rejuvenated him. Keep it up Ramon

Great stuff Ramon, keeping the good form.

Brands does that occasionally, just constantly hits the ball long on the bps, racks up huge horrible numbers.

Ramón
I used to believe he could grab a bunch of ATP titles
I guess he's suffered too many injuries, but I hope his tennis is as beautiful as it used to be
