Andy Murray

The legendary Andy Murray had a rough start to the season as he lost to Sebastian Korda in the first round of the Adelaide International 1. In the Australian Open, Murray lost to Roberto Bautista Agut in the third round. The British star had a great run in the Qatar Open as he finished runner-up. He will be playing his first match since the Qatar Open final where he lost to Daniil Medvedev.

Last year in Indian Wells, Murray was ousted by Alexander Bublik in the round of 64. Murray will hope to build on his good showing at the Qatar Open and have a deep run this time in Indian Wells.

The talented youngster has produced some fine results this season. He began with an exit in the first round in Adelaide International 2. A second-round exit in the Australian Open and a first-round exit in the Cordoba Open followed. Martin Etcheverry has found good form as of late.

He made it to the quarterfinals of the Argentina Open and backed it up with a run to the finals in the Chile Open. These two results sandwiched a first-round exit in the Rio Open. In Chile, he made it to the finals of an ATP Tour event for the first time in his career.

Head-to-Head and Prediction

This will be the first meeting between the two players and therefore, the head-to-head scoreline currently stands at 0-0.

Prediction: Andy Murray to win in three sets.
