ATP INDIAN WELLS - MAIN DRAW: possible fourth round Nadal-Federer and Kyrgios-Djokovic!

Indian Wells draw this year is really similar to a Grand Slam's, if you look at the bottom half. Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal could play against each other at fourth round level one month and a half after the epic Australian Open battle, while Novak Djokovic could face Nick Kyrgios again, one week after the Australian player's win over the Serbian player in Acapulco.

The winners of these two potential matches, would meet in the quarter-finals. But it won't be easy, especially for Djokovic who may play Del Potro in the third round, and for Nadal who is set to face Verdasco. It went better to Federer, who after a first match against Robert or Sela, will eventually play against Johnson.

In the other spot of the bottom half the projected quarter-finals is Cilic-Nishikori. It went much better instead to Andy Murray. The British player, after a first match against Yen-Hsun Lu or a qualifier, would play against Feliciano Lopez at third round level, then Bautista Agut and Goffin or Tsonga in the quarter-finals.

In the semifinals, Wawrinka or Thiem. Finally, Richard Gasquet withdrew due to medical reasons. TOP HALF (1) Murray, Andy [GBR] vs Bye
