Struff J-L. - Galan Riveros D. E.
In this first round match of the ATP tennis tournament in Indian Wells, Jan Lennard Struff from Germany and Daniel Elahi Galan Riveros from Colombia will meet. Struff is better ranked and a player with a much higher reputation, but it will not be easy for him against the Colombian. Both base the game on strong serves and equally strong exchanges from the baseline.
As I said in previous analyzes, the surface is much slower here than usual. Both tennis players are just as good on hard surfaces as they are on clay. The German played here four times and was eliminated twice in the first round. His best result here is his fourth round last year. But then he was in much better shape than he is today.
I expect a big fight. Hardly anyone will establish control in the match. Struff is the favorite but I think Galan Riveros could surprise.
