Indian Wells FQR: Bubka def. Schoorel 6-3 3-6 6-4
Bubka was up a break twice in the third. Bubka had 40-15 for a 5-*2 lead but got broken. Unfortunately, Thomas struggled on serve throughout the match, and got broken to 15 to lose. Someone with the serve Schoorel supposedly has shouldn't be winning 44% of return points in a set, as he did in the third, to a mediocre returner like Bubka. The Dutchman still hasn't progressed enough on hard court and is in danger of stalling out in his career, but a good win for Bubka regardless. He's another guy with the serve and power to potentially win a couple matches here with the right draw.
