[1] Andy Murray

Can Murray break his voodoo in the Californian Desert? It is easy for us to dismiss Indian Wells as ‘Murray’s worst event’ but actually what sticks in the mind is the two unexpected losses – Guillermo Garcia Lopez in 2012, and Donald Young, 2011. Either side of those he has been to the quarter-final twice, the final in 2009 and the semi-final in 2015.

We cannot even really draw any correlation between a long gap after the Australian Open and a return during the European Indoor and Middle Eastern swing. It is just those two losses that mark this tournament as a horror.

Well, we have to acknowledge his third round exit to Federico Delbonis does not help, but in terms of the rankings, Novak Djokovic has to now defend two titles while Murray just has to string together more than back to back wins to stretch his lead at the top of the table.

There is no doubt there is momentum on his side. Post-shingles, Murray came through a nightmare tie-break against Philipp Kohlschreiber that has more than shaken off the rust, and perhaps we can rest a little easier in thinking he will be in play on the final weekend.

 

[2] Novak Djokovic

It is probably fair to say that Djokovic caught a lot of people by surprise taking a wild-card into Acapulco, but his bid for the winner’s sombrero came to an end at the hands of Nick Kyrgios. That is not to say that Djokovic was not tested. He came from a set down against Juan Martin Del Potro before being edged in two tight sets by the Aussie.

The desert has been kind to the Serbian and he feels at home here, so do not count him out at all. He is more likely to adjust and has at least a few matches under his belt. In fact we would go as far as to say that win over Del Potro probably was the confidence boost he needed to get himself in the frame of mind to ‘four-peat’.

 

[3] Stan Wawrinka

The knee injury that plagued Wawrinka in Melbourne may well have hindered the Swiss as he tried (and ultimately failed) to defend his title in Dubai. This has never been a great tournament for Wawrinka – he has only ever been as far as the quarter-finals twice and of the top four seeds is the most likely to be a shock exit this time around.

 

[4] Kei Nishikori

With the late withdrawal of Milos Raonic, Nishikori moves into the fourth seed slot ahead of Tuesday’s draw, and he will no doubt be looking to go further than last year’s quarter-final run – his best at the tournament.

There were a few raised eyebrows when he eschewed his usual spot at the Memphis Open to opt for the clay in Buenos Aires. It almost paid off – he is no slouch on the dirt and made the final but then crashed out of Rio in his opener.

Back on the hard courts he ought to be a good bet for a decent run.

The BNP Paribas Open take place between 9-19 March – (GMT -8 hours).
