Cristian Garin has started off well at the Indian Wells Open. He thrashed American tennis star Ernesto Escobedo in straight sets without much hassle. Although Ernesto gave a tough competition in the first set, he was completely bamboozled in the second set by Garin.

Garin would look to build onto his winning momentum. On the other hand, Alex de Minaur has also started off in an emphatic fashion at the Indian Wells. He defeated Aleksandar Vukic in the opening round in straight sets with relative ease.

Although Vukic tried scripting a comeback in the second set, de Minaur used his experience to good effect and eventually emerged victoriously. He will now take on Cristian Garin in the next round which promises to be an absolute nail-biter.

Both, Garin and de Minaur have been in good touch lately. Moreover, both of them had forgettable outings before coming into the Indian Wells Open. However, it would be fair to say that Garin will walk into the encounter as a slight favorite.

Prediction: Cristian Garin to win in three sets.
