2013 BNP Paribas Open

Wednesday, March 6th, 2013

Hey Tennis Friends!
I’m starting my daily reports on the second day of qualifying for the women’s event, and the first day of qualifying for the men’s.

The results for the matches that I featured are:

Michael Russell d. Igor Kunitsyn 6-1, 7-6(5)
After dominating the first set, Russell got a little unnerved as Kunitsyn began getting a handle on his style of play. Kunitsyn has reached as high as #35, but, is currently ranked #162, to Russell’s #70 ranking. Russell was able to do what he does best, feed from the crowd and keep his focus, in order to pull out the win.

Ernests Gulbis d. C Harrison 6-7(5), 6-2, 6-4
Christian is only 18 years old, and got a wildcard into the qualifying. In his impressive debut at the BNP Paribas Open, he saved three match points in the third set, but, ultimately lost due to the greater tour experience of Gulbis.
