• Janowicz, Nalbandian clash in Indian Wells

    3/9/13 8:50 AM | Ricky Dimon
    Janowicz, Nalbandian clash in Indian Wells Jerzy Janowicz is kicking off his Indian Wells campaign after a first-round bye. Janowicz will face David Nalbandian in a tough second-round matchup on Saturday.

    Jerzy Janowicz and David Nalbandian will be going head-to-head for the first time in their careers when they do battle in round one of the BNP Paribas Open on Saturday.

    Janowicz snagged the No. 24 seed mainly thanks to his shocking run at the Paris Masters last fall, when he reached the final before falling to David Ferrer. The 22-year-old Pole, who reached the third round of Wimbledon last summer and the third round of this season's Australian Open, is up to a career-high ranking of 24th in the world. Janowicz, however, is just 4-4 in ATP tournaments this year.

    Nalbandian is toiling down at No. 93 in the rankings, partly due to injuries and also because of his points disqualification when he was defaulted from last season's Queen's Club final. Still, the veteran Argentine is playing decent tennis after skipping the Australian swing. He reached the final in Sao Paulo (lost to Rafael Nadal) and on Thursday he cruised past Marcel Granollers 6-4, 6-2.

    Janowicz is a considerable favorite on paper, but he is not on fire like he was in Paris and it remains to be seen if he can play on outdoor hard courts as well as he can on grass or indoors. Look for Nalbandian to prevail in three sets.
