Interesting BNP Paribas Open 1st rounds

Here are a few first rounds of interest in Indian Wells:

Nicole Vaidisova vs. Michaella Krajicek: With the way Vaidisova has been playing, it's hard to imagine her getting past Krajicek, despite all of Krajicek's problems.

Kateryna Bondarenko vs. Shahar Peer: Bondarenko, like her sister, is unpredictable.

Sabine Lisicki vs. Elena Vesnina: Lisicki has had some good results for the past year, and suddenly--this year--so has Vesnina. This could be a very good match.

Samantha Stosur vs. Francesca Schiavone: This one is bound to be entertaining, what with all the varied skills these two possess.

Marta Domachowska vs. Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova: Given Domachowska's recent illness and her career-long inconsistency, this should probably be Pavlyuchenkova's match, perhaps in straight sets. But on the off chance that the other Domachowska shows up--the one who can stun--it could turn into quite a battle.

So would I. We aren't going to get coverage until this weekend, and even then--if it hasn't already been played--you know it won't be shown.
