Falla is definitely capable of causing upsets, but I think a lot of this has to do with his left handedness (and how he takes the ball early). Rafa is great at playing left handers and I expect him to win comfortably. Falla lost to Querrey and Gulbis in his last two matches so he might not even beat Leonardo Mayer.

Re: Indian Wells 2012 - Draw

Murray's draw is a complete joke
Nole's one is not bad he should reach the QF without dropping a set
Fed got the toughest draw in my oppinion

Conclusion, Falla is useless. Watch him lose 6-0, 6-1 to L.Mayer.

Re: Indian Wells 2012 - Draw

Well i think Fed/Delpo in 1/4 again is pretty much a lock. If Raonic loses to Melzer on a fast indoor court he sure as hell won't win against Fed on a claycourt.

Berlocq beating Milos? For serious?

There's no way to avoid the Raonic/Fed clash now.

Re: Indian Wells 2012 - Draw

"Tough draw". Let's not get carried away...It's not an easy one but Fed has less than 10% of losing before QF, and this goes for anyone else in the top 4.
As for QF - It's average. Delpo or Ferrer are not bad at all - Delpo hasn't won a set against Roger this year, and I don't have to mention the H2H with Ferrer, do I? Berdych would be a lot worse for Fed.
Worst part is Nadal. But it's still best of 3 and Nadal should be rusty.

Bottom line, Fed has got the hardest draw of The top 4 before QF, but at those levels, this usually doesn't make much of a difference until QF\SF.

Playing Ferrer in QF is the toughest draw? Remind me how many times did Ferrer beat him?

I believe you misunderstood.
I meant that Delpo and Ferrer are NOT A BAD DRAW for Fed. In other words - Easy enough.
BTW I think Ferrer is gonna beat Delpo.

If you're talking about what I wrote in the end, It may be the hardest if you sum up all the rounds. Ferrer is pretty easy but It's still not Fish. And R3-4 are kinda hard. But still, as I said, early rounds don't matter.

Re: Indian Wells 2012 - Draw

The winner will be one of Djoker, Nadal, or Murray. Murray has a pretty good shot here. I could just about see him beating Djoker & Nadal back to back. As for Fed, I'm doubtful he'll make the semis & obviously he'll lose in straights if he does - unless Dolgopolov or somebody pulls a miracle & downs Nadal early.

Re: Indian Wells 2012 - Draw

Nadal is a terrible matchup for Dolgopolov, only Baghdatis or Tsonga can beat Nadal before SF.
