INDIAN WELLS – Drawing wild card Mitchell Krueger in the first round of Indian Wells qualifying was a pretty good outcome for Canadian Vasek Pospisil.
He took full advantage in a comprehensive 6-3, 6-4 win on Stadium 2, with a full complement of Canadian snowbird fans on hand to give him rousing support.
Pospisil never faced a break point; he won 82 per cent of his first serves and more impressively, 17-of-18 points on his second serve. That’s not a stat you see every day from the 26-year-old– or many players on many days, for that matter.
If he wins that, he will be in the main draw.
