You know the routine, people. Vote up on which qualifier/lucky loser you all believe will do the best in Indian Wells. Several to realistically choose from so vote up!

[Q] Andrey Golubev vs [Q] Rik De Voest, winner to play [1] Djokovic in R2

Tim Smyczek----R1 vs Querrey, R2 vs [12] Almagro

Paolo Lorenzi----R1 vs [WC] Ginepri, R2 vs [23] Wawrinka

Amer Delic----R1 vs Sela, R2 vs [13] Simon

[LL] Frederico Gil vs [Q] Rhyne Williams, winner to play [11] Isner in R2

Vasek Pospisil----R1 vs Mahut, R2 vs [22] Monaco

Matthew Ebden----R1 vs Kunitsyn, R2 vs [32] Benneteau

[Q] Marinko Matosevic vs [Q] Ruben Bemelmans, winner to play [9] Del Potro in R2

Sergei Bubka----R1 vs Davydenko, R2 vs [14] Monfils

Bobby Reynolds----R1 vs Malisse, R2 vs [28] Stepanek

I think the answer is, unfortunately, Ebden. It's up to my boy Igor to take advantage of his advantageous draw and not allow any charade to happen there. I also think Bubka has a great shot at taking out Davydenko, and Reynolds' draw isn't bad on paper, nor is Pospisil's. Delic could cause surprises.

I'm still beyond pissed Bjorn lost to Ballbashev and blew his opportunity at a golden draw with De Voest so really, I couldn't care less about any of this as long as Ebden and Lorenzi LOSE their matches and Fred Gil WINS his match. I'd also like Matosevic to lose but seeing him be destroyed by Del Potro would be fun.

The ones with realistic chances of making the third round are Pospisil, Ebden and Reynolds in my opinion. I'll stick with that order for the likelihood too.

Filo V., do you like any current Australian players?

Bjorn's loss also makes me sad. :sad:

under normal circumstances Popsicle, but he's been awful lately so I'm be shocked if he even took a set off of Mahut

Golubev, the Djokovic slayer, will make it 2 for 2

This Rhyne Williams guy is really flying under the radar, but his wins were impressive!

I totally forgot to add this yesterday, Polish Tim aka Tim Smyczek has a good draw. I think he's going to beat Sam and Almagro is winnable. If he's confident in himself to win these matches, he has the form and he can do damage.

I like Hewitt, Tomic and Benjamin Mitchell :angel:

I think several people think I have an anti-Aussie attitude which couldn't be farther from the truth, I just really cannot stand Matosevic at all, and think Ebden (also Ball and Guccione) are horrible players :lol:

Bjorn's loss also makes me sad. :sad:
:sad:

Bjorn will get into the top 100 next week in Dallas! :bounce: I'm remaining positive and hoping for the best.
