Beautiful day for tennis in the desert

It has been an absolutely beautiful day in Indian Wells, CA for the Paribas Open Tennis Tournament, temperatures around 89 degrees plus with bright sunshine and blue skies (wish I was there!).  The action has been pretty hot as well.  Sharapova defeated Arruharrena-Vecino, 7 – 5, 6 -0 to reach the quarterfinals.  S. Errani also advanced to the quarters defeating Bartoli of France.  In men’s action, Sam Querrey defeated M. Matosevic in three sets, 7 -6, 6- 7, 7 -5.  Sam is a southern California guy and with this win he will move into the top twenty next week and become the top ranked American male tennis player.  Congrats to Querrey!  Marty Fish (American) fell to J. Tsongo in two tough sets decided by tie breaks,  6 – 7, 6 -7.  19 ranked Tommy Haas continued his strong comeback defeating 11th ranked Amalgro of Spain in three sets.  Hard serving M. Raonic advanced over M. Cilic in three sets, 3 – 6, 6 – 4, 6 – 3.  World #1 Djokovic fell behind early to Domitrov from Bulgaria but recovered  to take the first set 7 -6 and then finished with a flurry to secure the second set, 6 – 1.  Later tonight 3 Andy Murray will be featured in the night session against Y. Lu.  Also, #1 V. Azarenka will face the other Radwanska, Urszula.
