A promised Interesting Week: Indian Wells
Novak Djokovic has made good progress in the BNP Paribas Open (Indian Wells) and will face the no.45 ranked Spanish tennis player Pablo Andujar in the third round of the ATP Masters 1000 tournament. His slow start was narrowed down to two possible reasons; one, Andy Murray's mother tweeted (@judmoo) that a lot of the players participating are ill; or two, he was affected by the fact that Vemic was sick. Either way, his performance was still better than Anderson's, and he defeated him yesterday in straight sets 6-2 6-3. The Serbian said after his victory yesterday: "The opening set, especially opening five games, took half an hour or more," said Novak. "He’s very aggressive on the return games. He has a great serve, as you can imagine for his height, so I had to return well. I had to just be patient, and wait for my chances". Apart from Djokovic, we've also got our eye on the Verdasco versus Del Potro match coming up in a few hours. Despite us having no interest in the women's side of things, the Ivanovic versus Wozniacki match later today should be good too.
