Re: Which qualifier/lucky loser will go farthest in Indian Wells?

I think the answer is, unfortunately, Ebden. It's up to my boy Igor to take advantage of his advantageous draw and not allow any charade to happen there. I also think Bubka has a great shot at taking out Davydenko, and Reynolds' draw isn't bad on paper, nor is Pospisil's. Delic could cause surprises.

I'm still beyond pissed Bjorn lost to Ballbashev and blew his opportunity at a golden draw with De Voest so really, I couldn't care less about any of this as long as Ebden and Lorenzi LOSE their matches and Fred Gil WINS his match. I'd also like Matosevic to lose but seeing him be destroyed by Del Potro would be fun.

Re: Which qualifier/lucky loser will go farthest in Indian Wells?

The ones with realistic chances of making the third round are Pospisil, Ebden and Reynolds in my opinion. I'll stick with that order for the likelihood too.

Filo V., do you like any current Australian players?

Bjorn's loss also makes me sad.

Re: Which qualifier/lucky loser will go farthest in Indian Wells?

under normal circumstances Popsicle, but he's been awful lately so I'm be shocked if he even took a set off of Mahut

Re: Which qualifier/lucky loser will go farthest in Indian Wells?

Pospisil has a decent chance to reach the 3rd round with dreaming about the last 16 because he beat Isner in their only meeting.

This Rhyne Williams guy is really flying under the radar, but his wins were impressive!
