2019 BNP Paribas Open (Indian Wells Masters) Odds & Picks
The BNP Paribas Open is an ATP 1000 event Happening in the Indian Wells Tennis Garden in California from March 7th-17th.
This year’s tournament features two of the world’s top ten men’s players. Every one of the big three — Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer — highlight the function.
Djokovic and Federer are eyeing a record sixth title at Indian Wells, with Djokovic entering the heavy favorite. Djokovic, Nadal & Federer Have Dominated the Tournament
Seven of the last eight tournaments at Indian Wells are won by either Djokovic, Nadal or even Federer. The only year that was not the case came last year after Argentine Juan Martin del Potro conquered Federer to win the title.While Federer won in 2017, Djokovic was the reigning champion from 2014-2016.
The 2019 Australian Open winner enters the Paribas Open as the tournament’s top seed. He does face a potentially tricky matchup from the next round, if 33rd rated Nick Kyrgios progress.
Kyrgios lately went quite the run at the Mexican Open on his way to winning the title last week. His tournament included an upset over Nadal at the Round of 16, before a straight sets win over world no. 3 Alexander Zverev.
Kyrgios is also 2-0 lifetime against Djokovic, although the two wins came back in 2017. What could possibly await from the fourth round is a game against Rotterdam winner Gael Monfils or Argentina winner Marco Cecchinato.
The second highest rated player in the first quarter is eighth ranked Dominic Thiem. Thiem reached the semis of the Argentina Open last month, prior to making a fast exit in round one from the Rio Open.
Should Thiem meet Djokovic from the quarter-finals, he’ll be assured in knowing he’s defeated the Serb in their previous two games.
Should he play Djokovic in the quarter-finals, he will be confident in knowing he’s conquered the Serb in their previous two matches. However, he has never won a head-to-head in a match played on hard courts.
