A pal, a frequent doubles associate like at Bercy final November, a Blue with whom he has simply shared among the finest weeks of his profession, a very good outdated rotten draw when the invention of this Masters 1000 promised to to be solely pleasure: “It’s nice to enter the desk of such an necessary match with my rating. A brand new journey begins. We must adapt rapidly as a result of we are going again open air after indoors.

Hugo Gaston (68th) has by no means performed in Indian Wells both and isn’t but certain of his destiny since he’ll face a qualifier. Marc Barbier hopes that his protege will verify his restoration after a sophisticated begin to the 12 months (crushed at first of Sydney, Melbourne, Montpellier, Rotterdam after qualifying): “Hugo is doing well. We worked well in Toulouse, especially during a second intense week. We hope that he continues his momentum from Marseille, where there was much better (editor’s note: success over Moutet, good resistance in front of Tsitsipas), and that he takes advantage of this end of the streak on hard courts”. After Indian Wells and Miami, clay will certainly resume its rights.
