Andy will be looking to take the good form of his semi final showing in Acapulco, where he greatly improved his resurging game after having back surgery at the end of last year, and make a deep run in the first Masters tournament of the year in Indian Wells. As he, along with the other 31 seeds received a bye in the first round, he will open his campaign in the second round against the hero of the 2012 Wimbledon Championships and the man who defeated Rafael Nadal there, Lukas Rosol, who beat Serbian qualifier Dusan Lajovic in three tight sets, coming from a set down. Rosol is currently ranked 47 in the world, after reaching a career high of 33 last year, where he had his career year, winning his first title on the clay courts of Bucharest.

This will be the first meeting between the big serving Czech and Andy, who normally enjoys playing the serve reliant players of the game, although Lukas also has a fierce ground game.

No danger here.  Andy's getting fitter and better.  A straightforward 2-0 victory is my prediction, maybe 6-3, 6-3

Rosol is a brainless ball basher. Do hope Andy is match fit and ready to give him a tennis lesson in artistry, skill and intelligence. yay

I've voted Andy in 2 but think it's gonna be stretched to 3 sets....Isn't Rosol the guy who beat Rafa in a GS or something?

This match will definitely be played tomorrow, as they seem to be playing top half first, then bottom half second, which is today. So top half tomorrow, bottom half Sunday, and so on.

The only times I've ever seen Rosol use his skills effectively were against Rafa in Wimbledon and when he won the Bucharest title.

Apart from that he's pretty ineffective on court.
