Rafael Nadal and Fernando Verdasco used to face each other all the time--14 times at the ATP level prior to the summer of 2012, to be exact. But almost three years have passed since the two Spaniards last collided.
Serena Williams may have a bad knee, but her head is doing just fine. After struggling against Monica Niculescu in Indian Wells, Serena gave poor Niculescu the full Williams treatment this time. Serena is going to be #1 no matter what, but this obviously puts the rest of the draw on notice. Niculescu will probably be a little below #60.
