Bouchard vs Bacsinszky by Igrok
Indian Wells, 3. round, hard
Bouchard (42) will play against Bacsinszky (21)
Bouchard already won 15 matches this season, significant better than last year. She reached the final in Hobart and Kuala Lumpur both lost. Here she suffered in 1R against Ozaki losing the first set 2-6 and then displayed a good tennis against Stephens winning in two sets for 7-5,7-5. Her best ever result is R16 here.
Bacsinszky started the season really bad going out basically in every tournaments almost always in 1R. Here she won in 2R against Pironkova and has to defend last year's quarterfinal.
Bacsinszky will desperately hope to at least equal her quarter-final effort from last year otherwise her ranking will drop even further. On this relatively slow surface Bacsinszky is able to play good tennis, she should be fresher compared to Bouchard who has played a lot recently.
