2019 BNP Paribas Open (Indian Wells Masters) Odds & Picks
The BNP Paribas Open is an ATP 1000 Occasion taking place in the Indian Wells Tennis Garden in California in March 7th-17th.
This year’s tournament features two of the world’s top ten men’s players. Each 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, together with Djokovic entering the heavy favorite. Djokovic, Nadal & Federer Have Dominated the Tournament
Seven of the past eight tournaments at Indian Wells have been won by either Djokovic, Nadal or Federer. The only year that was not the situation came last year when Argentine Juan Martin del Potro defeated Federer to win the title.While Federer won in 2017, Djokovic was the reigning three-time champion from 2014-2016.
Djokovic, the 2019 Australian Open winner enters the Paribas Open as the tournament’s top seed. He does face a potentially tricky matchup in the third round, if 33rd ranked Nick Kyrgios progress.
Kyrgios lately went on quite the run at the Mexican Open on his way to winning the title a week. His championship comprised an upset over Nadal at the Round of 16, until a straight sets win over world no. 3 Alexander Zverev.
Kyrgios can also be 2-0 lifetime against Djokovic, though the two wins came straight back in 2017. What could possibly await in the fourth round is really a match against Rotterdam winner Gael Monfils or even Argentina winner Marco Cecchinato.
The second highest rated player in the first quarter is ranked Dominic Thiem. Thiem reached the semis of the Argentina Open last month, prior to making a fast exit in round one by the Rio Open.
If Thiem meet Djokovic from the quarter-finals, he’ll be confident in knowing he’s defeated the Serb in their past two games.
If he play Djokovic at the quarter-finals, he’ll be assured in knowing he’s conquered the Serb in their previous two games. But he has never won a head-to-head in a match played on hard courts.
