If he does win the title (although unlikely), then he would become only the 5th Olympic Gold medallist to win Indian Wells (men's) since the reintroduction of tennis to the Olympics in 1988.

Despite its litany of woes, the Republic of California once again bringing relevance to otherwise forgettable international contests.

I'd almost forgotten that "Indian Wells" was on the Pacific US coast.

In my mind, I used to lump it together with the tournament at Key Biscayne, which is quite obviously on the Atlantic coast.

The weird thing with Rublev is that he likely won't knock out the top 3 guys in IW, but if someone else does the job for him, he could probably wreck some havoc on the draw. That's the problem for him...

True he mostly can either beat someone or can not. There’s no maybe

Clearly you do not understand the nuances of is world class backhand he disguises to make look not as good as it is. It takes talent for a professional to develop a shot like that.
He inherited that world class backhand from former world number one Andre Agassi whose last wish was to get The Great Berrettini to adopt his backhand and takes it to a whole new level.
