March 14, 2013: Indian Wells Match Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD

Quarterfinals

Tomas Berdych (6) vs. Kevin Anderson – Kevin Anderson has had a great tournament.  Beating David Ferrer and Gilles Simon is no small task.  Still, Berdych will be able to hold serve more easily than Simon or Ferrer could.  The Big Czech will likely advance due to having a stronger ground game and due to having been in this situation more frequently.

Roger Federer (2) vs. Rafael Nadal (5) – Federer’s 2013 form has been a little dodgy.  Rafa is riding a winning streak.  This could go either way as Roger beat Rafa at Indian Wells last year.  Still, Federer does not seem quite right at this point in the year.

Victoria Azarenka (1) vs. Caroline Wozniacki (8) – If Caro wants to get back to #1, she will need to win matches such as this one.  Azarenka has 2 slams to her name and collected two Olympic medals last year.  Wozniacki will need to add hardware such as that if her career is to be remembered as more than a rankings anomaly.

Angelique Kerber (4) vs. Samantha Stosur (7) – Kerber seems the less likely to blink if this match gets close.
