Well done to the Colonel for fighting back in that 2nd set. I saw his 5 set tussle against Simon at Wimbledon last year live, and I wasn't expecting an easy match for him here.
Misha was on a 4 match losing streak at IW before his victory yesterday, and had a 3-5 win-loss record at the event. This is only the 2nd time in 6 visits to the Californian desert that he has been able to win a match his opening match and/or progress to the 3rd round there. Good luck to Misha against Hewitt in R3. It will be very tough and Hewitt looked in good form against Querrey. Both of their previous matches came in 2002 and were on grass, so their head to head is irrelevant here.
