2nd Round Preview – Raonic about to play his 2nd-round match versus Carlos Berlocq at Indian Wells

Milos will step onto Stadium 2 court in about an hour or so (around 9:45-10 PM Eastern) to play his 2nd-round match (though the Sportsnet coverage will probably be later since it's on tape delay - if they even show the Raonic match).  He will be up following the Kvitova / McHale match which is on Stadium 2 right now at about half-way through the second set.

Milos has never faced Berlocq on the tour before, but he's 5 inches taller than Berlocq, 8 years younger, 30 lbs heavier, and has a much better record so far this year with two titles and a 15-2 win/loss record.  Berlocq, who turned pro in 2001, has never won a singles title (though he won in Stuttgart in doubles in 2010) but made his first finals last month in his native South America at Viña del Mar, losing to Juan Mónaco in 3 sets on the clay.

Given that Raonic is an amazing hard court player and Berlocq's strength is mainly clay, I'm pretty confident in Milos to come away with a win here.

In order to watch, you should be able to find the live streaming tennis online somewhere, or PVR the Sportsnet coverage in case it comes on very late.  Roger Federer's match is starting at around the same time (10 PM Eastern) on Stadium 1 court, so the regular coverage that Sportsnet shows will probably be focusing on that the most.  Your best bet is to search for a live stream on the internet as per the Tennis Canada tweet above.
