BNP Paribas Open 2013: Marinko Matosevic vs Juan Monaco 2nd Round Preview
Former World No. 10 Juan Monaco will take on unseeded Marinko Matosevic of Australia in the second round of the Indian Wells Masters on Sunday.

14th seed Juan Monaco will take on Australian Marinko Matosevic in the second round of the BNP Paribas Open on Sunday.

Almost a fortnight ago, Marinko who is yet to earn a career title came close to winning one at the US Indoor Tennis Championship but had to retire due to a bone bruise in his right foot he suffered during his semifinal match against Japan’s Kei Nishikori.

Though, devastated by the unfortunate incident Marinko who is ranked 53rd in the world is now back on his feet and is willing to aim higher. At Memphis, on his way to the last four stage, the Australian had defeated much higher-ranked players that included world no. 22 Sam Querrey and world no. 23 Alexandr Dolgopolov. Though, Marinko’s performance prior to Memphis had been poor with first round losses at Brisbane International and at the Apia International, the 27-year-old can take inspiration from his form at Memphis and take on former world no.10 Monaco. The duo have never played before in their professional career, and will be wary of each other when they take on each other for a place in the third round of the $5,244,125 tournament.

Monaco, however, has seven titles in his collection and earlier in February had partnered with Rafael Nadal at the VTR Open in Chile where they ultimately ended as runners-up in the ATP event. Of lately, the Argentinian has been lying low in singles event, but did managed to win two matches at the Davis Cup for his country.

Matosevic in three.
