Stan Wawrinka v Paolo Lorenzi at the Indian Wells Masters
The lady lack turns her back to Wawrinka as far as the first round opponents go. This time he comes up against the hard nut Lorenzi. Paolo has been at his best in Indian Wells. He produces many topspin balls and hits them to the baseline. These shots are very hard to handle with one-handed backhand. Paolo also gets the shots from the baseline and will be difficult to break. As for Stan, he will be highly motivated to close out the match. If he loses another first-round affair, it’ll be a wound to his ego.
Betting pick: +5.0 handicap market on Wawrinka.
David Goffin v Karen Khachanov at the Indian Wells Masters
Karen Khachanov will in most of the points thanks to the big serve and powerful shots from the baseline. David Goffin will oppose him with high velocity. The Belgian will apply pressure once he has a chance to do so. The main question is how well Khachanov is ready. Goffin is the favorite with slight likelihood that the Russian will prevail. We guess that Khachnov will offer resistance in a couple of games. The final score is hard to predict. Whether it will be 6:1 7:6 as it was against Agut or 4:6 7:5 6:3 as against Simon, we can’t say for sure.
Damir Dzumhur v Albert Ramos-Vinolas at the Indian Wells Masters
Damir Dzumhur has outplayed Ryan Harrison in a tough first-round match. The US player deserved a win but didn’t survive it in the hot weather. Ryan should definitely lose some pounds. As for the match now, Albert Ramos-Vinolas is the favorite. He lacks velocity to perform well on fast courts but the surface in Indian Wells serves him good. He will be competitive here against the Bosnian who has no powerful shots from the baseline and will do his best to take advantage of the accurate shots and net comings. Other pointers are that the match is scheduled for morning session and Damir has suffered a slight foot injury.
Betting pick: Ramos-Vinolas in 3.
Alexander Dolgopolov v Philipp Kohlschreiber at the Indian Wells Masters
Both of the rivals are in good form. The both enjoy playing at high speed so we expect to see many short rallies with many errors and active winners. The main difference is in the first serve percentage: 65% of the German against 55% of the Ukrainian. It can be the key.
Joao Sousa v Mischa Zverev at the Indian Wells Masters
After the Australian swing, Mischa Zverev hasn’t won a single match. Partially it’s due to his opponents who were strong enough. Now the elder of the brothers got rested and will be supported by his brother. We expect he’ll show good performance. As for Sousa, he will experience more troubles. Mischa can attack with the second serve and will come to the net to get winners. Will the Portuguese manage to attack successfully? We don’t think so.
Betting pick: Zverev in 2.
Ivo Karlovic v Yoshihito Nishioka at the Indian Wells Masters
Ivo Karlovic has to wake up at least. He has been fooling around in Memphis but has already improved in Delray Beach. The Croat was unlucky and failed to win the tiebreaker. Facing Nishioka, he’ll need to serve at 70% to struggle for the win. The outcome will largely depend upon stamina. Ivo is more reliable but the match is too risky to bet on.
Pablo Carreno Busta v Peter Gojowczyk at the Indian Wells Masters
The German has shown very solid tennis in the first round. He has been aggressive and attacked with every ball. Pablo Carreno Busta is also very aggressive but his topspin shots provide his opponents with time to attack. No obvious favorite for the match.
Betting pick: Positive handicap market on Gojowczyk.

Probably. But Johnson's service is good, so Roger will rarely make more than one break in a set.
