There were several extremely topsy-turvy, up-down and all around type matches on Thursday at Indian Wells. You can check the results and see for yourself. Which one do you all think was the craziest?

Was it Stakhovsky and Bogomolov with Stakhovsky being broken in a long game at 5-5 in the third only to break Bogo when he was serving for the match and win five straight points in the tiebreak from 2-*3 down to win the match?

Was it Haase being up a break three times in the third set and losing his serve to love when serving for the match at *5-4, losing the final set tiebreaker 7-2 to clay-court specialist Andujar?

Was it Jesse Levine and Albert Ramos' back and forth drama throughout the first two sets of their match; with Levine winning the first set tiebreak 12-10 being down 9-*10 after having several leads throughout the set, and Ramos saving three match points in the second set to win it in a tiebreak?

Vote up to answer which one of these matches you thought were the most off-the-wall to you!

Would like to say Bogey because he is a gigantic clown in general, but Haase wins the day. He is developing into one of the greatest lead wasters of all time.

If you spend all day looking at the ATP website scoreboard and write down everything that happens in the match, I can see how things can get wacky. I can't believe I missed all of the crazy and suspenseful scoreboard action.

None of the scorelines are very shocking considering that the level of all of these players is extremely low and therefore mugathons and WTA style chokes are a norm. These bottom feeders will lose soon enough to a first decent players and go back to some irrelevant challenger event where they can stop plaguing ATP events with their presence.

Hope you guys are being sarcastic. Poor players? Ok, because it's really easy to be top 100 in the ATP, rankings, right?

Most people on this forum consider everyone outside of the top 4 poor players and are player-fans (not tennis fans) and bandwagoners. Don't pay them any attention.

Some good quality ATP players mixed in with some decent challenger level players produced some fireworks yesterday by the looks of things. Unpredictably wacky would be putting it lightly. Pretty disastrous day for betting people everywhere methinks, but some entertainment for whoever watched the matches.

Whenever Robin Haase is involved you know he is involved in the craziest match.

I don't see anything strange with Andujar and Sela's scores and Stakhovsky-Bogomolov was a 50-50 match hence nothing to be too much surprised even there.

You don't find a guy who has a big serve as his main weapon, Delic, losing 6-2 0-6 2-6 weird?

Levine's loss and Haase's are close, but Haase-Andujar was so up and down whole time while Ramos-Levine just had that one moment
Bogomolov's wasn't that crazy, just choking

Indian Wells is not Stockholm, serve can be less effective. A
An in-form Sela yesterday was rightly favourite (1.50)

Of course, but still Delic has a pretty big serve, he held 4/4 service games in the first set and then 1/7 in the other 2. That is weird. :p

Delic was barely holding in the first set, though. Sela had looks throughout the first set. The final two sets he converted on those openings.
