Indian Wells R2:  Raonic def. Berlocq 6-4 6-2
Adequate performance from the Canadian outside of the 19 aces. Will have to be better vs Roger to have a chance. Never really got out of third gear, but it wasn't necessary. Hit some huge shots and made a lot of winners, especially the three straight winner returns to go up 40-*0 at 2-*0 in the second set, but also made quite a few sloppy errors.
Berlocq competed as hard as always, and made the match significantly more competitive than it probably should have been with his fighting and determination, but just didn't have any weapon whatsoever to truly be a factor in the match, and made too many errors himself.
