- BET: Pablo Andujar to bt. Albert Ramos
- Analysis: Both players surely not playing on their preferite surface, because according to their results and their tennis characteristics clay is the kind of surface where they are able to do their best performance. Pablo Andujar is the one that has more power on the strokes, the faster service and for sure the player that could play better on fast surfaces according to his tennis looking that he has a very good forehand and a backhand which is solid enough. Pablo this season before this tournament just played Aus Open on fast surfaces where he got the second round by beating Kunitsyn in straight and losing to Chela. On South American clay instead has been disappinting for him by winning a couple of matches and losing twice on the first round. Here in Indian Wells he is doing such a great tournament, playing with very good feelings and already defeated players like Haas and Flo Mayer that on hard they can for sure tough opponents to play. Albert Ramos instead is a player that uses to do his game more defensively playing on a solid to miss as less as possible and being left-handed trying to use his forehand to open the court and as well on his side the backhand solid enough. Surely being more defensive player and without a huge service and power it's not easy for him to play on fast surfaces and the results for sure shows that, in fact before this tournament he lost three times on the first round at Auckland, Australian Open and Montpellier, he did QF in Doha but just winning one match against Tursunov and then making three games against Tsonga. On this tournament he comebacks twice, in fact on the first round he was down a set and almost a break against Levine and on the second round he was down a set, a break and match point for Gasquet serving 3:5 down, then the French lost absolutely his mind and begun giving to Ramos a lot of gifts going out totally from the match. The H2H are all on clay as like already said it's their best way to play, but Pablo Andujar leads 5:1 and although just one is from last season this looks a good thing being from the same country for his confidence to play this match. Like already said in our opinion Pablo Andujar has a better tennis for fast surfaces, he is playing great here and the 5:1 leading on the H2H will be important as well on this match, Ramos was two times almost gone, already enough... In our opinion it's not understandable how Andujar should be the underdog here, Ramos beated Gasquet, a "big name" and this had a big influence on the market line, but the real one is far away from this one, at least in our opinion and for that we are betting on Andujar.
- Pick: Pablo Andujar TO WIN Albert Ramos - Odds and Book: 2.18 at Betfair - Stakes: 10/10 (Flat)
