Indian Wells QFR: Smyczek def. Russell 6-2 6-0
Pathetic result from Mikey, I'm assuming due to injury given the service numbers. "Polish Tim" (as some call him) qualified and almost beat Kohlschreiber here last year having squandered match points, and has qualified his last three ATP events now in 2012, also qualifying in San Jose and Delray Beach and beating Melzer in Delray and nearly beating Muller in San Jose. Tim also beat Andreev 6-1 1-6 6-3 yesterday so he's definitely in good form and could pull a surprise in the MD.
As for Mikey, he's going to lose around 30 points from last year. Hope he can get to the top 100 in time for the French/Wimbledon cutoffs.
