Re: Indian Wells - A new season begins "Take Two"

I was watching on a very choppy stream so I can barely see any point, just here and there, so I can't tell you much. But there's a play-by-play that you can read if you are interested:

Re: Indian Wells - A new season begins "Take Two"

Wawrinka was horrible, there's no denying that, he was only decent near the end of the second set when he started going for broke a little bit more. However, Gilles served well and wasn't making the bad errors that he's made in other matches this year. Overall, it was a big step forward and I'm actually hopeful that he can beat Harrison/Garcia-Lopez in the next round.

Re: Indian Wells - A new season begins "Take Two"

happy enough with that. stan was trying to outrally gilles for most of the match and it didn't work at all. only time stan looked like he could threaten gilles was when he was 1-5 down thought he had lost and started going for it.

it was a half decent match from gilles and i have my fingers crossed he can take advantage of his open draw.

Re: Indian Wells - A new season begins "Take Two"

Why

Lost three matchpoints including one with a missed overhead

Hopefully he can regroup and win the third because I know for sure that I couldn't
