Indian Wells QFR: Golubev def. Phau 6-4 6-4
Bjorn had two break points to break back when Andrey was serving for the match. So very disappointing. There was a very long game at 2-2 in the second set where Bjorn staved off four break points, before finally succumbing. I'm really disappointed, I didn't think Bjorn would lose to Golubev, I thought his speed would be too much, but I guess Andrey's power ended up winning. Bjorn could have been top 100 this week so this is deflating.
Andrey is playing quite a bit better and with a bit more control these days, although that isn't saying much considering how bad he was in 2011. These courts should suit his game perfectly if he can control the ball in the high-elevation, so he could be very dangerous in the MD.
