Indian Wells R1: Sweeting def. Stebe 6-2 6-2
Dominant from start to finish. Ryan faced no break points, never got taken to deuce, won all but five first serve points, only three double faults. Had chances throughout the entire match on Stebe's serve to break. Stebe had 30-0 in the first game of the match but was eventually broken in a 6+ minute game. Sweeting held and then Stebe fell behind 0-40 in his second service game before rallying to hold, and fell behind 0-40 again at *1-3, getting back to 30 before dropping serve for the second time in the set.
Stebe saved three break points to open the second set and had several game points but was broken on a double fault in a long game, and got broken to love at *2-4.
Impressive performance for Ryan. Playing a lot better this season thus far. Stebe still isn't very good on hardcourt.
