Default Indian Wells R1: Darcis def. Young 6-2 3-6 7-6(5)

Another up and down, unpredictable match in Indian Wells.

First set, Don got broken on a double fault to fall behind 1-*2 and got broken again to 15 to fall behind a double break. Steve faced no break points and served at 79%, won the couple close games on his serve and took the first set relatively comfortably.

Second set, DY broke at the first opportunity to take a *2-0 lead, and saved two break points and handful of deuces to consolidate his advantage. Don had 15-30 for a double break and didn't take advantage, and Steve immediately broke to 15 the next game to get it back on serve at 3-2. Don then re-broke to get back ahead a break for *4-2 and held on from there to take the second set.

Third set, Darcis raced to a *4-0 lead after a long game where Don came back from *0-40 down and saved four break points before being broken. Don came all the way back to tie it at 4-4 and had three break points to serve for the match after Darcis led the game 40-15, but didn't take advantage. Both then held on after back-to-back deuce games on their serves and they headed into a tiebreaker.

In the tiebreak, Don had two early mini-break leads but Steve won five straight points from *1-3 down to 6-*3 up to eventually win it 7-5. Extremely deflating loss for Donald, at the tournament he beat Murray and started his career rebirth last season. Steve always does well to win dogfights like this, and ultimately I like him a little more than I do Donald so I'm happy he won. Hopefully this loss doesn't set Don back; he really could have used a victory here given the season he's had and growing pressure he's under to perform.

Young and Tomic losing on the same day. Glorious.

It's fair that Darcis won. Still feel sorry for Young.

Not as fun as Tomic's defeat.

Incorrect. Also, ironic from a Nalbandian fan.
