John Millman vs Jack Sock: Preview
Millman comes into this tournament after making the quarterfinals of the Sofia Open last week, where he was downed by Marcos Giron. He also made the quarters of Nur-Sultan before losing to countryman James Duckworth. Unfortunately, the Aussie was eliminated in the opening round itself at the US Open by Henri Laaksonen. It has been a tough year for the 32-year-old, across surfaces. For the season, Millman has a 5/8 win/loss record on the hard courts. That said, he will be happy that he has been drawn against a player, who has equally been suffering with injuries and poor form.
On the other hand, Sock enters the Indian Wells Masters after his third round match against Alexander Zverev at the 2021 US Open. The American loves playing on the hard courts, but his results in this season has been anything but impressive. However, he did win the title in Little Rock in July, and even took a set from Rafael Nadal at the Citi Open in Washington. The 29-year-old also indulged in some challenger events, earlier in the year.

These two will be meeting for the first time on the ATP tour.
John Millman vs Jack Sock: Prediction
Since both players haven’t met on the tour previously, it will be interesting to see how this contest pans out. While Millman made two quarterfinals in his last couple of tournaments, Sock is likely to be rusty after having not played post the 2021 US Open. While Sock will try to finish points quickly, the Australian will be keen on grinding his opponent.
Match Prediction: John Millman should win in three sets.
