Indian Wells 2013 3rd Round Draw

Andy Murray won his first match at Indian Wells in three years. Rafael Nadal safely made it through his first hard court match in almost a year. Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer both sailed through their respective second round matches.

So the big four made it through to third round of the 2013 BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells. However the top 4 seeds did not all make it through their first match. With Nadal’s recent hiatus due to injury he has been overtaken in the rankings and currently fellow Spaniard David Ferrer occupies the fourth seed spot and he lost in his opener to Kevin Anderson.

The third round draw sees Andy Murray go up against Yen-Hsun Lu. Lu beat Murray at the Beijing Olympics back in 2008 could the man from Taipe cause another upset this week. Also in the top half of the draw Novak Djokovic faces 31st seed Grigor Dimitrov.

In the bottom half of the draw, Nadal takes on Leonardo Mayer and Federer faces Ivan Dodig.
