    Murray closing in on quarterfinal World No. 3 Andy Murray is back on court to face Argentina's Carlos Berlocq for a place among the final eight. The winner moves on to face either World No. 7 Juan Martin Del Potro or Germany's Tommy Haas in the next round.

    Third seed Andy Murray is through to the round of 16 after defeating Chinese Taipei's Yen-Hsun Lu in straight sets. The 25-year-old Scot tallied five aces and four service breaks en route to a 6-3, 6-2 victory in 89 minutes.

    Murray is seeking his first quarterfinal at the Masters 1000 Indian Wells since 2010.

    World No. 85 Carlos Berlocq advanced to the fourth round by virtue of his 6-2, 6-2 upset of 16th seed Kei Nishikori. The Argentine veteran converted four of nine break points through and hour and 13 minutes of play.

    He will be looking to reach his first quarterfinal at the BNP Paribas Open on Wednesday afternoon.

    Prediction: Murray in straight sets.

Boy, did I pick the wrong night to stay up late and watch muzz - scrappiest I've seen him play in a long time. 7-6, 2-3 so far but even though a set up still not hitting top gear. berlocg a right little irritant that won't go away either, pummelling it to the corners as old-style muzz just does the run-and-return stuff. If it wasn't for the excitement in the roger-stan match I think I'd be in bed by now.

The Roger/Stan match not exciting at all! Both making too many errors, certainly not in top form both of them. Murray finishing the job on hand soon!

I night of hard labour. Hard work for muzz. Hard watch for me.
Still, a win's a win. 7-6, 6-4.
If it's the muzz we know, he'll raise it for delpo. He'll have to.

^^^ Dunno what happened there.
lucky - wasn't watching the roger-stan match, just flipping to it occasionally to escape the frustration. by excitement I meant the twists in the score not the tennis which I didn't see much of, but I bet muzz did more shanks than roger tonight.

Ok, I didn't get to watch Murray's match. Anyway, none of the Fab Four guys are playing well this tournament, so not to worry about Murray.

Andy didn't play was him losing the points rather than Berlocq wining it...when I was watching Rafa play I must confess I was telling to myself: I hope Rafa wins the same way Rog and Andy did by not playing well but still playing enough for the win...and the justice is served...:)

Glad I didn't stay up for that one!
Taking comfort from Lucky's comment that none of top 4, sorry Ferrer, is playing well.

Nole seems to have an easy day at the office, against Querrey. He's going to bagel Querrey, ooch! The way Qurrey plays, there's no way he can harm Nole. Hard hitting wont work against Nole, mix it up by coming forward, like what Fognini did, at least he would win some games that way.
