Like Murray and Norrie, Dan Evans is one other Brit with an inauspicious begin to 2024. He has simply two wins to this point, and he fell 6-1, 5-7, 6-2 to Roman Safiullin.

One in all his wins this yr was in opposition to the Russian a few weeks in the past in Los Cabos, however the world quantity 42 avenged that loss with a snug victory within the desert.

Evans appeared out of kinds all through, seemingly fighting a shoulder drawback he referred to as the coach for. His gradual begin meant he was at all times behind within the scoreboard.

Gael Monfils recorded a dominant 6-1, 6-2 victory over Australia’s Max Purcell to set a second-round conflict with No. 8-seeded Hubert Hurkacz.

The 37-year-old Frenchman has began the yr with some first rate wins, and he’s now again within the prime 50 after his rating tumbled resulting from damage, which stored him out of the game for nearly a yr.

Purcell is often a difficult buyer, however his wily serve and volley performs have been picked aside within the Indian Wells situations. Monfils broke 5 instances within the match and dropped simply three video games.

Wawrinka Muted by Machac

Whereas it was excellent news for one veteran, former Indian Wells finalist Stan Wawrinka couldn’t mirror Monfils as he succumbed to a 7-6(3), 4-6, 6-2 to Tomas Machac.

As a fan, Stan’s matches of late are tremendous annoying to observe as he fights tooth and nail and fills the spotlight reel with ridiculous backhands however usually comes up brief within the third set like immediately.

I hope he can catch fireplace at a event this yr, however he’s 1-4 in 2024.
