50/50 IMO. Haas will need to play well on RLA.

This Qualifier is too good! Haas has no chance, and he will realise it before that match and runaway like a chicken!

But the backhand of Qualifier is pretty week. Haas just needs to stay away from his forehand and play lots of backhand to backhand rallies. Haas is the slight favorite IMO.

I don't know, Haas is a real unknown right now in terms of form, but you can always count on Qualifier for consistency.

This Qualifier is quite the player playing 16 singles matches. The only other player to play multiple singles matches in the first round though was Bye and he has a shithouse record. I also suspect Qualifier must be a woman as it will also be playing 16 matches in the womens draw. Haas should account for her quite easily.

Qualifier has not yet lost a match this year, so I'd say Haas can get at most 6 games over the whole match.

This qualifier will be Ghem or Golubev.

Sure his backhand isn't the greatest, but it is becoming more steady and his slice isn't bad. Qualifier was unlucky not to be seeded but I feel he will be at Indian Wells. Sucks the winner will almost certainly have to play Nadal.

Qualifier is much more talented than Hass. This match is totally on his racket.

Poor leng jai. He must be nervous already. Tough luck for Hass.

I'm disappointed Bye picked up a new injury. Bye is much better than Qualifier

Bye snubs the Slams year after year. Can't handle best of five so just doesn't play or fakes an injury. I think Qualifier is better. It's a shame they NEVER draw each other.

I also feel Lucky Loser doesn't play enough, he's got a good record against Bye.

I would like to know which qualifier it is. On the ATP website, 6 players have this name. QUALIFIER QUALIFIER10 seems the strongest one.

QUALIFIER QUALIFIER10 is a mug and has done nothing since it burst onto the scene at the 1969 Paris Indoor Tournament. QUALIFIER QUALIFIER1 beat it in straight sets in Hamburg in 1969 and then QUALIFIER QUALIFIER10 gave a walkover next time they faced each other two months later in Barcelona.

Qualifier and his 16 variants will be tough to beat.

Yes, but lucky loser has a more impressive bulge, even though qualifier looks much hotter shirtless !!1 :drool:
