I am going to side with the big serving Swede, Robin Soderling to see off world number 5, Fernando Gonzalez.
Gonzalez struggled to finish off the Canadian, Frank Dancevic yesterday, being taken to 7-5 in the third set. It may take him a little time to get used to the faster courts again, after playing a couple of tournaments on clay.
Soderling dropped only 3 points on serve in the first set, in an easy win over Daniele Bracciali in his opener and will be looking to repeat his win over Gonzalez here last year. That came in very easy fashion, 4&0, the Swedish player enjoying a host of break points. The Chilean has never really got it together in Indian Wells, where he has a 5-5 record and this looks a good time to take him on.
3 points Soderling 2.18 to beat Gonzalez ..... Betfair.
