And it’s finally here! Round 2 of the BNP Paribas Open 2013 at Indian Wells kicks off today and Roger Federer will play his first match of the tournament! Here is the schedule for Stadium 1 today.As you can see, Roger’s match is the 3rd one of the day after WTA’s Keys vs. Stosur which starts at 11:00am local time (7:00pm GMT) and then Isner vs. Hewitt (which should be a fantastic match to watch). I am thinking the Swiss won’t take to court before 2:00pm local time (10:00pm GMT), and it might probably be closer to 3:00pm depending on how long the previous matches are. Knowing Isner and Hewitt, that match could be a long one. For those interested, the highlight of the evening session will be Rafa facing the American Ryan Harrison. This will be Rafa’s first hard court match in almost a year since Miami 2012 when he withdrew before his SF match.
Today Roger finally gets a day match since Round 1 at the Australian Open. Here is a little information about Roger’s opponent, Denis Istomin and their H2H.Wishing the Maestro best of luck for the match!
