Tennis – LIVE BLOG! Indian Wells – Live Scores, Results, Italians, Live Scores

The seventh day of Indian Wells opens: Novak Djokovic’s now orphaned ATP marker (rejected by the United States for not being vaccinated), continues with Nadal’s races, but not on the pitch today. Djokovic who, however, thanks to Medvedev’s knockout is set to return to world No. 1 on Monday. The reign of the Russian has lasted very little so far. The highlight of the day will immediately be Matteo Berrettini, who is looking for a place in the round of 16: he will have to deal with Harris. We will keep you company as always until approximately 00:00 with updates, results in real time.

23:57 – What an effort Fritz, but he wins

We close our updates from the Indian Wells comeback with Fritz’s painful victory over Munar. Two hours and 50 minutes for the American to beat the Spanish: 6-4 2-6 7-6 for Fritz, who thus enters the round of 16. On the night the game to watch is undoubtedly Rublev-Tiafoe, which can put on a show. Finally, we remember that the day had opened with the success of Berrettini. See you tomorrow! HERE THE REPORT OF BERRETTINI’S VICTORY

23:00 – Swiatek over Kerber, De Minaur over Paul

A good battle ensued between Iga Swiatek and Angelique Kerber. The Pole in comeback passes, 4-6 6-2 6-3. With Sabalenka gone and Barty and Krejcikova gone, she is clearly someone to watch. In the men, however, the American Paul has to give up in two sets, although very close, for de Miñaur: 7-6 6-4. Waiting for the other singles of the program to enter the field, we play only in the field of Munar and Fritz: third set in progress, Fritz in a break.

21:30 – The point from the other fields

As for the men: Kecmanovic will be Matteo Berrettini’s opponent in the second round: his 7-6 7-5 victory over van de Zandschulp. On the pitch right now Munar-Fritz and de Minaur Paul. Women: Simona Halep beat Cirstea 6-1 6-4 in the Romanian derby, while Martic beat Samsonova 7-6 6-4. These are the matches completed so far. In the women’s field at the moment the beautiful challenge between Swiatek and Kerber. We will keep you updated on the progress of all these games until approximately 00:00.

20:45 – Berrettini won, 6-4 7-5

Bravo, bravo Matteo, who against the wall brings out the best things in the second set. He canceled 3 set points, closed a basically poorly played match 6-4 7-5… But he won it in 2, turning on for the first time in his career in the second round of the Indian Wells tournament.

20:41 – Break Berrettini!

What a good Matteo, who brought out his best tennis in the corner. Four games in a row and from 2-5 down, Berrettini turned aggressive and recovered the set. Break also in this game, now Matteo will serve for the match after the change of sides.

20:31 – Controbreak Berrettini!

The South African wobbles at best, wasting another set point, this time on serve. They make 3 in total. And so Berrettini comes back down, in a valuable game, where Matteo has found good touch solutions, especially a bowl that is anything but simple given the height of the rival. 5-4, but Berrettini can now serve again.

20:25 – Berrettini cancels a set point

Matteo is not playing well in this second set, very slow and incisive. As soon as the service slowed down a bit, Harris hit the road. Berrettini canceled 2 set points in the last service game, 3-5. But now Harris serves to take the match to the 3rd set.

8:05 p.m. – Harris Break, 3-1

On the first break point of the match, Harris also finds extra time, exactly as it was for Berrettini in the first set. A double fault from Matteo in this game, combined with the drop into the net, allows Harris to find the right pass and set up OT: 3-1 Harris.

19:48 – First set Berrettini, 6-4

In the 36th minute Matteo closes the first set against Harris with great skill. Attentive and precise when he had the opportunity, the blue took the first part. 7 aces for Berrettini. Excellent service performance.

19:43 – Break Berrettini

Surgical, Matteo, to exploit the first break point of his game and immediately return to the tie. So far Harris hadn’t had a problem with the serve from him, but Berrettini with his back managed to give him some trouble in this game. Harris then takes the part of him with the error right at the break point. Then Berrettini breaks away 5-4 and serves. Very good sign: he immediately took advantage of the rival’s first two concessions.

19:27 – Services dominate

At Berrettini-Harris so far the services dominate, as expected. No break points and 5 games played in exactly fifteen minutes of play.

19:12 – We’re leaving, Harris in the service.

The third round match begins. At stake the second round against one between van de Zandschulp or Kecmanovic. Berrettini won the unwind and chose to respond.

18:50 – Here we are, soon we will start with Berrettini-Harris

7:00 pm and will start on Day 7 of Indian Wells. Matteo Berrettini challenges Lloyd Harris, South African tennis player No. 32 in the ATP ranking. A precedent between the two: at Roland Garros 2020, with Berrettini who won in 4 sets on matchday 2.

Berrettini overtakes Harris, highlight of the match in 180 seconds

17:10 – Kyrgios, protagonist of the night

During the night, Sinner’s victory took place, but also Kyrgios’s, in a highly anticipated match since both had punctured each other some time ago on Twitter. A double 6-4 for the Australian, untouchable on serve. Here are the best moments of the game.

17:00 – The order of play on the 7th

The program of the day is immediately juicy for the Italian colours, with Matthew Berrettinithe only blue on the field today, he faced South African Harris on field 2. Appointment in two hours: from 19:00 we leave. A lot of women’s tennis in the center, which today begins to play the matches that will give away the quarterfinals: Cirstea-Halep, Swiatek-Kerber, to close the program in the middle of the Italian night, then a nice Rublev-Tiafoe.
