The first real major event after the Australian Open is being played in Indian Wells California and beautiful desert location.Some major shocks and upsets have rocked the tennis world.Andy Murray always suffers Australian Open Blue's was sent packing.....(well not really he is still in the doubles with Brother Jamie) by Donald Young ,an American always touted as the next big thing.He Beat Murray in straight sets......This was the coming of Donald Young ....NOT! ,unfortunately a "flash in the pan" veteran Tommy Robredo beat him 6-0 6-4 in the next round.In the women's side Aussie Sam Stosur lost to Dinara Safina,Safina served 16 double faults for the match and still won!!.....I have always thought Stosur was overrated and her runner-up in the French Open may be her big time crowning glory.
Among other big names Robert Soderling, Fernando Verdasco ,Li Na, have fallen in the desert! And in the mens doubles the Singles players are cleaning up the doubles specialists. This is a fantastic event also marking the return of Rafa to the tournament scene after the injury at the Australian Open.
