:eek: Johansson is in pretty good form. Well, he's in good practice at least. I don't really mind if Willy doesn't win, he just needs to put up a good fight and I'll be happy.

Thanks for starting the thread Choupi :D

Let's hope he can play (and win :angel: ) some matches here so the form will have returned for Indian Wells!

Woohoo good win for Willy in straight sets. Looking through the draw it looks good for him. Would love a final between Gonzo and Willy if that is possible. Good luck in the next round Willy and he looked good in one of the party photos with Gonzo.

:banana: I missed it because I was away for work but I'm VERY happy with the result!

:bounce: Such a good scoreline. He historically recovers form pretty quickly and it looks like it's happening again.

Guccione is next.

I really have no idea how this one will turn out.
H2H is 1-0 for Willy but it's been 3yrs since they met and Gooch has improved since then. Big serve guy.

Good luck Willy :yeah:

Willy should probably win this in two tie-breakers. Guccione really struggled past Hanescu, who isn't exactly in good form right now.

Canas defeated Guccione 6/2 7/5

Congratulations Willy :)

Congrats Willy.

He's playing great already. I don't think he'll lose to Delic ;)

He better not lose to Delic. Path to final is a lot easier now that Hewitt and Gonzo gone (sad that Gonzo loss though).

H2H Willy-Delic = 0-0 They never met
I don't know Delic's game at all, so I have no idea how this will turn out.
Normally Willy should win this I guess, but I've had :scared: surprises before, so I'm hoping for the best.

Good luck!

Delic, big serve, not the best mover and has a weak backhand, chips it mostly.

Comes to the net a lot and his forehand along with the serve are his 2 shots.

Time zone difference for Las Vegas sucks for me, but such a nice result to wake up to!!! :banana:

With Querrey he has to face a big server again but he did fine against Guccione and Delic, so I hope he makes the final :)

Too bad he'll be playing middle of the night Belgian time again :(

Willy's projected ranking is number 16, but I think he can move back up to 12 if he wins the title. It would be good to get a head start on those Miami points.

:( lost from Querrey
Up to IW now.
Let's hope he gets some good results the coming weeks because he's got quite a lot of last yrs Miami points to defend

Good luck! :yeah:

Bad luck to Willy looks like the wind was a major factor, don't know what happen on set point in the first set. I actually got to watch the match live in Australia and he looked really good. The second set Querrey played too well. Hopefully Willy can defend his points in both Masters events.
