Delbonis F. - Nishioka Y.
In this first round match of the Indian Wells tennis tournament, Argentine Federico Del Bonis and Japanese Toshito Nishioka will meet. They have played only once against each other so far and that match played on clay was won by Del Bonis easily with 2:0. Del Bonis is still in the top 50 players on the ATP list. He has been playing very badly lately and has six defeats in a row. Realistically, all matches are from a hard surface, but despite of that didn t have any chances in those matches. He played with the best players in the world.
Here, he will have a chance to break the bad run. Nishioka is a slightly better player on a hard surface. But he is nothing special either. He is a bit in better form as far as the last ten matches are concerned. He won one match more than Del Bonis. The surface here is much slower than regular hard surfaces and this will suit Del Bonis much more.
