No, expecting Milos to beat a journeyman clay specialist on a hard court is not asking too much of him, nor is it a particularly high expectation.
Hope Milos beats Roger so he can finally face Gael

that is laughable. Falla is a counterpouncher, he does not have enough great shots to put nadal in real trouble, he really has no chance against a fit nadal, even if playing worse than average.
Falla's game is way better against the big hitters in order to draw errors.

Re: Indian Wells 2012 - Draw

Nadal is a terrible matchup for Dolgopolov, only Baghdatis or Tsonga can beat Nadal before SF.

Re: Indian Wells 2012 - Draw

The winner will be one of Djoker, Nadal, or Murray. Murray has a pretty good shot here. I could just about see him beating Djoker & Nadal back to back. As for Fed, I'm doubtful he'll make the semis & obviously he'll lose in straights if he does - unless Dolgopolov or somebody pulls a miracle & downs Nadal early.

I believe you misunderstood.
I meant that Delpo and Ferrer are NOT A BAD DRAW for Fed. In other words - Easy enough.
BTW I think Ferrer is gonna beat Delpo.

If you're talking about what I wrote in the end, It may be the hardest if you sum up all the rounds. Ferrer is pretty easy but It's still not Fish. And R3-4 are kinda hard. But still, as I said, early rounds don't matter.

As for QF - It's average. Delpo or Ferrer are not bad at all - Delpo hasn't won a set against Roger this year, and I don't have to mention the H2H with Ferrer, do I? Berdych would be a lot worse for Fed.
Worst part is Nadal. But it's still best of 3 and Nadal should be rusty.

Bottom line, Fed has got the hardest draw of The top 4 before QF, but at those levels, this usually doesn't make much of a difference until QF\SF.

Re: Indian Wells 2012 - Draw

Well i think Fed/Delpo in 1/4 again is pretty much a lock. If Raonic loses to Melzer on a fast indoor court he sure as hell won't win against Fed on a claycourt.
