For Mackenzie, the Indian Wells tournament is the fourth of the season in the New World. Previously, the American played in Dallas, Delray Beach and Acapulco. In Mexico, Mackenzie advanced to the third round where he lost to Tommy Paul in straight sets. In the first round of the Masters McDonald faced Serbian Krajinovic, easily defeating the Balkan in two sets 6-3, 6-0. During the match, McKenzie scored five times on two double-faults, scoring 83% on the first serve and 56% on the second. At the party, MacDonald had the following stats: 56%/42%, Winners/Executors 18/6. In general, the numbers are very decent, but one should not forget that the American has an order of magnitude stronger and more status opponent in front of him.

For Rune, the Indian Wells tournament is his second in the New World. Prior to the Masters, the Dane played four matches in Acapulco, where he was stronger than Shelton, Borges and Berrettini, but lost in the semi-finals to Australian De Minaur. Such practice should be enough for the Dane to play the Masters at a good level. We expect a confident start from the Scandinavians.
