Indian Wells

Tim loves this tournament and he's been in the finals twice in the past, including last year (lost to Fed). He has a good draw again this year, but I'm not doing the 'prospective opponents' list again because it gets my hopes up and I feel a bit disappointed when Tim loses early

Instead we'll take it round per round:

1st round: Bye - Tim's not likely to lose here, but with him we never know

2nd round: Clement or Donald Young. Tim has a 2-0 record against Arnauld, but they haven't played each other since 2000. Tim and Young has never met before in an ATP event.

Goodluck Tim!

Re: Indian Wells

Looks like he's playing Clement. GO TIM!

Btw, Yonge, thanks for the heads up in that Facing Federer DVD thread in General Messages re: TSN - I had no idea that TSN was going to show it! I've never seen the documentary, so you might imagine how excited I am to see Tim's fun side

No prob. I think I'm gonna miss the documentary though, since I have a lecture at that time . I hope they show it again during Masters Cup Shanghai later this year.

Re: Indian Wells

Yeah, Mondays at 4, I have lecture, too. But I'll tape it. I can't NOT watch it - it sounds great! Besides,

(Gahh...lectures. Are you in university/college, too?)

Re: Indian Wells

Tim def. Clement 4-6 6-4 6-3. The second serve was a problem today but he pulled it off!

Next: either Paul Goldstein or Jurgen Melzer.
Tim is 1-1 against Jurgen (lost in Miami last year in 3 sets, but we all know he was tired from Indian Wells at that time ). Against Goldstein Tim is 1-0 (Tim won en route to his title in Washington D.C. 2 years ago).

....And yes thenman, I'm in university, too.


(ADD: It's Melzer in the 2nd round)

GO TIM!

Hey Yonge, I was just wondering how you knew it was Tim's second serve in particular that was the problem during that match? Was it on tv?

I wish it was on tv! Well actually it was - in Europe! Some of Tim's fans from there were sharing the happenings in the Scores & OOP Thread while I was following the live scores online. I think the match summary showed that he won only 40% of 2nd serve points.

Re: Indian Wells

Tim def. Melzer 7-6 6-4!

Up next: Robredo
Tim is 3-0 against him, one of those wins came at Indian Wells in 2002 (Tim reached the final that year).

Go TIM!!!

Re: Indian Wells

Tim defeated Robredo 6-4 2-6 6-2!!! He was down a break in the first set and came back.

Next: Either Guillermo Canas or Taylor Dent. We all know that Canas is a tough one for Tim (H2H is 1-4, with Canas winning the last 4 meetings). Taylor and Tim have not played each other yet. It'd be nice to see two serve and volleyers facing each other.

GO TIM!!!

Re: Indian Wells

I dunno what happened to Dent, but Canas won after just 1 set. So there's a very very tough match waiting for Tim in the next round
