Forecast: Indian Wells Men's Singles Champion 2018 (Update 2)
- Federer: 58%
- Del Potro: 20%
- Raonic: 9%
- Other: 13%
Contributing factors: Previous Indian Wells performances, recent form, injuries and ranking.
Did you know? Federer has an unbeaten record on hard courts against every player left in his half. He is also the only player left in the draw who has won not only Indian Wells, but any Masters 1000 event.
Did you know? In terms of match win percentage, Indian Wells is the best Masters event for Del Potro and the joint best (with Miami) for Raonic. These two are the only two players left in the bottom half of the draw to have reached at least one Masters 1000 final.
Did you know? The Australian Open champion has gone on to win Indian Wells 57% of the time in the last 14 years.
Did you know? Indian Wells is one of two Masters 1000 tournaments (as well as Miami) to feature 96 players in the main draw. This results in seeded players needing to win 6 rounds in order to win the championship and unseeded players needing to win 7 rounds. In turn this may partly explain why the tournament has produced less "surprise" champions, as 93% of the champions since 1990 had at least reached a Grand Slam final at the time of winning Indian Wells. In comparison this number is 71% at the Paris Masters, which has a draw of 48 players.
