TennisSection previews the 2023 Indian Wells Masters as Hubert Hurkacz takes on Tommy Paul in the third round on Monday, March 13, 2023.
Will Hubert Hurkacz get the win? Will Tommy Paul pull off the upset? This will be an interesting one, where we have a tight matchup between two top-20 players vying for a place in the fourth round. Who will triumph and move through to the Round of 16 at the 2023 Indian Wells Masters?
Hubert Hurkacz vs. Tommy Paul Match Preview
Hubert Hurkacz has looked solid so far, taking down the dangerous Alexei Popyrin to set up a meeting with the far more dangerous Tommy Paul. Hurkacz has a solid record at Indian Wells, and with his massive serving and ability to stay in the longer points, I think it’ll be a really tight match tomorrow. However, Paul has been in excellent form and with the kind of tennis he’s been showing, I expect Hurkacz to be in some serious trouble here at the 2023 Indian Wells Masters.
Tommy Paul was flawless in his opener against Struff, looking like his game is going to be very well suited for the conditions here. Although Hubert Hurkacz is ranked higher than him, and with the massive serving of the Pole Paul will certainly struggle to get into service games, I still think the American is playing the better tennis at the moment and I expect him to continue making inroads as he looks to book himself a spot in the Round of 16 of the 2023 Indian Wells Masters.
Hubert Hurkacz vs. Tommy Paul Prediction and Pick
Hubert Hurkacz and Tommy Paul have met once before, with Hubert Hurkacz leading the head-to-head 1-0. Their one meeting came at the 2021 Paris Masters when Hurkacz was the far better player, but Paul has made up some of that distance and is coming into this match as perhaps a complete and in-form player. Let’s see if the American can grab the “upset” and secure a place in the Round of 16 at the 2023 Indian Wells Masters.
