• Federer kicks off Indian Wells bid against Istomin

    3/9/13 3:26 AM | Cheryl Murray
    Federer kicks off Indian Wells bid against Istomin Roger Federer will take on Denis Istomin in his first match at the Indian Wells Masters. The Swiss is looking for his first title of the season.

    This should be a good first match for Roger Federer. The world No. 2 is familiar with Denis Istomin's game. The two men have played on 3 other occasions, with the Uzbekistani not yet taking a set.

    Federer isn't enjoying the kind of form this year that he did last year. The Swiss suffered losses in Rotterdam and Dubai and has not yet made a final; his best result was a semi-final showing at the Australian Open.

    While Federer hasn't been in the best of form, with losses to Julien Benneteau and Tomas Berdych in his last two events, he isn't likely to lose in his first match to a player he has always beaten. The courts in Indian Wells are a bit slower than Federer would prefer, but he is the current title holder, which proves that he knows how to play on these courts.

    Prediction - Federer in straight sets.
