    When are they playing? "Spring forward" has me knackered; I can't make heads or tails of this OOP

    Two to one it's a walkover or a retirement.

    If they're both healthy and able to play well, there'll surely be some nice baseline exchanges and nifty shotmaking.

    I think Nishikori has too much game for Haas nowadays.

    Can't see him losing a set to the German.

    Unfortunately, it seems age has finally caught up to Haas.

    I also believe Nishikori takes this one in 2.
    He is too agile for Haas.

    Nishikori will be too much for Haas tonight. My prediction- Nishikori 6-3, 6-4

    It'll be on after Ivanovic-Stephens. They are currently still in the first set.

    Haas had a shaky start but started to get into a groove. Kei looks like he knows what to do against him though. I'll give it to Kei in two tight sets.

    Going with the old-timer. Nothing against Nishikori but for aesthetics' sake I hope Haas progresses.

    Very important win for Haas, as he has many points to defend in Miami.

    yeah he's now defended all his points from last year's IW, so a win over Fed today is probably more important/realistic for a point defense standpoint vs. another run in Miami.
