To be honest, we assumed that Karen would have problems in the second round of Indian Wells, because the German Otte showed up much earlier. However, Karen’s match with Oscar lasted only one hour and 17 minutes, the German managed to win only six games in two sets, three in each game. During the game, the Russian hit five straight shots with no double-faults, scoring 63% on his first serve and 65% on his second. Acceptance stats: 48%/50%, winner/enforcer stats 15/7. A good match in terms of quality by the 15th racket of the world. It is worth mentioning that Karen had previously reached the semi-finals of the Australian Open and lost in the tournament in Dubai.

The Spaniard in Dubai performed better than Karen, in the United Arab Emirates he defeated Jaziri, but lost in three sets to Rublev. In Indian Wells, Alejandro also started from the second round, where he was stronger than the Chinese Wu Yibin, 67th in the world ranking. The match with the Chinese lasted an hour and a half and was won by Dawidowicz Fokina 6:4, 6:1. The Pyrenean missed a single double fault during the game, scoring 88% on his first serve and 67% on his second. Acceptance stats: 33%/66%, winner/enforcer stats 16/10. Note that Wu Yibing’s stats for active goals scored and unforced errors were negative, 13/20.
