WWW Indian Wells R1: Seppi vs Rochus

Two guys separated by only a few ranking positions, similar level players. Should be an interesting match and it's one of the few matches on a stadium court today that don't feature an American. Olli almost beat Roger here back in '06 and has had a good season overall so far in 2012. Seppi leads the H2H 3-0 and has won on both clay and grass over Olli.

Slower outdoor hard, plus the H2H advantage, should make this a favorable match-up for Seppi so I expect him to win in three sets. What do you all think? Vote up!

I want Rochus to win, but Seppi will do this probably in 3.

I don't think Oli minds slower hard at all, as long as the opponent isn't getting the ball up high on him - which Seppi won't.

It is kinda hard to see Oli winning the longer rallies though, Seppi doesn't really need to force things much.

Re: WWW Indian Wells R1: Seppi vs Rochus

Seppi is not the most powerful player in the world... plus Oli's return is best shot and Seppi's serve is horrible. I think Rochus has a shot

Matosevic, Hanescu, Kukushkin, Chiudinelli, Gulbis, Bozoljac, Gabashvili, Hernych, Stakhovsky, Brown, Sousa, Garcia-Lopez, Rosol, Zeballos, Istomin, Dolgopolov, Kohlschreiber, Tursunov, Robert, Gonzalez, Monaco, Thiem, Seppi

Andreas, win this match for me!

A little surprising 3-0 H2H, looks like he knows how to play with little Oli.
Seppi has a relatively good draw, he plays Fish(8) in the second round who has been in mediocre form lately. A beatable 8th seed for sure and then the draw opens quite nicely.
Or maybe I'm a little overoptimistic here.
