Indian Wells QFR: Ebden def. Ram 6-4 6-3
The first qualifier to make it into the MD of Indian Wells is Matt Ebden. Too bad Raji couldn't get up here, but not a surprising result at all. Ebden was up a break in the first set and lost it, but controlled the match thereafter; only lost 5 points on serve in the second set.
Being banned hasn't changed my attitude on Ebden in the slightest so I hope he loses to whoever he draws in the MD.
We should be appreciative of Federer though, because we will never see anything like him again. The fact he can still compete for slams ever after the erosion of his physical skills is really a greater testament to the natural talent he has than the period of time when he was dominating the tour.
great to see the great mathew ebden show his form on the big stage yet again... very good signs for the australian scene to see him qualify for a masters draw so soon in 2012 after his run in asia late last year...
he is the aussie ferrer... what a workhorse... how can you not love this guy...
