    Let's amend that to winner of Rivers-Ox to take the title, then.

    Good thing there's no long third set, for a change. Couldn't take a five-hour slogathon.

    Could be up against the 5th seed in qualifying if I make it to the second round. Eek.

    BNP Paribas Open
    1st Qualifying Round - Indian Wells, CA (United States) - Hard (outdoors)

    • West CWLand's Pierre Rose has made the perfect start to his qualifying campaign in Indian Wells with a hard-fought three-set win over 22nd seeded local Jack Griffen. The World No. 252 was one of the lowest ranked entrants into the qualifying draw, but produced one of his best displays yet since being snapped up by the Federal Republic in a 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 upset. Griffen, ranked No. 177 in the world, was undone by his continuous mistakes that saw him broken five times during the contest. Rose, meanwhile, kept his composure after blowing three match points on the Griffen serve to seal it with some consistent groundstrokes in three. Rose now faces a huge task against World No. 76 Aksu Emrem whose great form continued with a 3-6, 6-0, 6-0 rout of Marcus Heindrich.


    • In the big upset of the day, third seed Matt Bre was stunned by Jason Schmidt in three sets to crash out of the qualifying draw. It looked easy for Bre in the first set as he took it 6-4 inside of an hour, but Schmidt began to lift his game in the second and earned his first break to take a 4-2 lead. Despite being ranked some 180 spots lower, Schmidt matched it with Bre in the rallies and took advantage of some nervous serving as he raced to a qualifying round showdown with Jeremy Natale 4-6, 6-3, 6-4.


    • In his much-awaited return to the court, Australian Open juniors champion Marcuss Deane did it tough against unseeded Argentine Juan-Pablo Serrano. The teenager was expected to dominate a man who grew up on the clay courts, but found it tough as Serrano clung onto his own serve with some patient hitting. In a surprising result, Deane was broken in the ninth game of the second set but only conceded one other break point during the match as he did just enough to advance 6-4, 4-6, 6-4. He'll test his form against fifth seed and World No. 99 Fernando Aguero who overcame a slow start to beat Steve Cole 5-7, 6-1, 6-3. Aguero made the quarter finals of the tournament in Cherbourg last week before losing to eventual champion Christopher Durand 2-6, 5-7.


    • Whilst Deane did it tough, Mat Mitchell had no troubles flogging Spain's Juan Manuel Cortés to go just one win away from a main draw berth. Mitchell needed just one hour and twenty minutes to beat the Spanish journeyman 6-0, 6-3 in a dominant display that saw him come to the net regularly to great effect and hit seventeen winners. It gets better as he faces a showdown with Ireland's Eoin O'Malley in the qualifying round after he stunned sixth seed Carlos Machado 6-1, 7-5.


    • Tenth seed Martti Korpinen earned a good draw against wildcard entrant Dean Delgado, but was made to do it tough despite the 6-3, 6-4 scoreline. Delgado had ample opportunities against the accomplished doubles player, but failed to make them count as Korpinen showed great composure in a straight sets win that lasted over one hundred minutes. Korpinen now faces Canadian veteran Frank Smith following his 6-3, 6-1 win over 21st seed Samuel Thorpe.


    • Finally, Roy Daniels finally found some much-needed match practice as he easily defeated Leander Solent 6-4, 6-4. He faces Cherbourg Challenger semi finalist David Lebčgue for a spot in the main draw.

    I am so ready for Aguero. A few weeks out to recharge the batteries and a nice 3 set win to find my rhythm. He won't know what's hit him.

    Rivers is somewhat concerned about his preparation for Indian Wells. Was planning on heading to the Alps to get some altitutude training under my belt, but ended up being stuck in Amsterdam due to the volcano problems.

    Volcano problems? This is March 2010, man. No volcano is ever going to stop people from being able to fly!

    Heef is worried about getting there in time as he decided to wear his Queensland Reds shirt in Bangkok on the way to Indian Wells from his holiday home in Phukit.

    BNP Paribas Open
    Final Qualifying Round - Indian Wells, CA (United States) - Hard (outdoors)

    • A brave performance from West CWLand's Pierre Rose was not enough for him to earn qualification through to the main draw in Indian Wells after a straight sets loss to second seed Aksu Emrem. Aksu had previously made the semi finals in Zagreb earlier last month, but struggled to shrug off the World No. 252 who produced some solid tennis. But it was the World No. 76 who had the polish to hurt the Westerner on the scoreboard and returned very well to secure passage to the main draw 6-4, 6-4.


    • It was better news for teenage prodigy Marcuss Deane whose 6-4, 6-4 win over Fernando Aguero means he will play his first PTA World Tour match this week, and he'll do it in an PTA Masters 1000 event. After Deane's struggle against clay courter Juan-Pablo Serrano on Monday, many expected the in form Spaniard to beat the West CWLander but signs were good for the 23rd seed as he shot to a 3-0 lead. Despite a stumble on serve, Deane looked good and did enough to take advantage of a waryard Aguero to take the first set 6-4. Deane is well developed for a player of his age, and matched Aguero in the rallies. His lanky frame meant he didn't quite have the power in his groundstrokes, but his eleven aces played havoc with Aguero's rhythm as he marched into the main draw in straight sets.


    • He will be joined by Mat Mitchell who was forced to come from a set down to defeat Ireland's Eoin O'Malley. Mitchell was irresistable in the first round of qualifying, and seemed to buy his own hype as O'Malley controlled the first set to lead 5-1. Whilst Mitchell strung a couple of games together to limit the Irishman's momentum but could not avoid dropping the first set. Nevertheless, it seems the late wins in the first set buoyed the World No. 146 who lifted his game and began to overpower O'Malley with his big forehand. Whilst O'Malley had his chances, he did not have enough to oust the eighteenth seed who completed a successful qualifying period 3-6, 6-3, 6-3.


    • Noted doubles player Martti Korpinen will join his doubles partner Jefferson Drake in the main draw after he also came from a set down to beat Frank Smith. The Canadian veteran took advantage of some wayward shots from the East CWLander in the first set as Korpinen doubled his winners with unforced errors. He turned to more conservative tennis in the second set to find his range and it paid off as he levelled the match at a set each. That gave him the confidence to surge into the main draw with some more attractive shots in the decider as he overcame Smith 3-6, 6-3, 6-2.


    • Finally, the poor post-injury form of Roy Daniels continued as he failed to get past quality Frenchman David Lebčgue who advanced 3-6, 6-7(1).
