Basically Ellison made a mockery by bumping up the prize money at the top to GS levels. Other then that, Indian Wells is the best Masters event. Only one to have Hawkeye on all courts, and the Coachella Valley setting is simply unbelievable.
Then we will fight in the shade.

I hope this becomes the norm at all the tournaments in the future.

Not only that. The attention to detail was so nice.
 
They had the court time, real time and serve speed on one board.
Another board had challenges remaining and the score.
 
Very beautiful.

World No. 4 Andy Murray suffered a shock second-round exit at Indian Wells and will look to rebound strongly in Miami, where he lifted the trophy in 2009 with victory over Djokovic.

C'mon Murray!!!
 
I do hope Murray comes back fighting, he's had problems before after the AO.
He has to break that pattern, maybe this is the time and he has Lendl to keep him honest with himself.

Harrison could be Roger's first opponent....then it could be Roddick! Wow...

Wow?!   :rofl_2: :rofl_2:

As usual Babs has absolutely nothing to add so he just tires to trash the person posting. 

That is a hella draw for Harrison to start.  That is, he he can make it past the first round.   I am sure he was not happy to see the draw come out.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

The problem for Harrison is really his ranking is too low. So he gets big guy in early round.

Would be surprised if Roger allows Harrison more then 3 games total.
Then we will fight in the shade.

It is difficult draw for me because I would like to see Federer continue catching No. 1 ranking while I also hope Harrison can pick up his ranking. :Confused:

It is going to have good chance for more than this. He improves his game since they meet in last year.

Harrison has shot which is his forehand and massive serve. He also has big second kick serve.
The weakness really is his backhand. So Federer tatic is clearly attacking Harrison's backhand wing.

You are right. But this is the path all the youngsters have to take. Remember the days when Del Potro and Gasquet had to play first round matches against Federer at Wimbledon as well as recently someone like John Isner drew Nadal in his first round at RG

I am interested to see how Murray does in this tournament. Hope he does well. If he does meet Raonic that would be a fascinating match. I wonder if they ever played each other before.

They haven't played each other before.
