2012 Indian Wells: Two Tweeners In One Point – Amer Delic v Dudi Sela
Hope all is well and everyone is enjoying the action in the early rounds at Indian Wells. I worked with Rajeev Ram in qualifying where he won his first match against#227 Ivan Navarro (ESP) 6-4, 6-2 and lost in the second round to #91 Matthew Ebden (AUS) 6-4, 6-3. Rajeev played a great match against Ivan, but battled 30mph+ winds against Matthew which caused havoc with his serve and attacking game.
The YouTube point posted in this blog is from the Round 1 encounter between #63 Dudi Sela (ISR) and #178 Amer Delic (BIH). Dudi won 2-6, 6-0, 6-2. Amer looked good in the first set but Dudi broke early in the 2nd and rolled to victory. There was one special point in this match where both players ended up hitting a tweener – has to be the onlyATP point ever for that to happen.
Click on the video above to see this amazing point. Dudi lost today to #13 seed Giles Simon (FRA) 7-5, 6-7 (6), 6-4. Dudi was only able to manufacture three break points for the match, and broke on two of them. Gilles on the other hand amassed 17 break point opportunites and broke four times.
Enjoy the video!
