Vasek Pospisil v J.J. Wolf Head to Head
This will be the first meeting between the two players on the ATP Tour.
Pospisil, Coming Off a Bleak Run
World No. 68 Vasek Pospisil win-loss tally for the season so far stands at 7-13, which in a way says all there is to know about the year he has had.
His last stint before the Indian Wells Open was in Sofia, where he lost to Egor Gerasimov in the opener in three sets. Before that, he incurred back to back second-round defeats in the US Open and ATP Metz, respectively to Ilya Ivashka and Andy Murray.
Most of Pospisil’s season is dotted with such early exits, except for the ATP Eastbourne where he made it as far as the quarterfinal before losing to Alex de Minaur.
Still seeking his first singles title on the tour, the 31-year-old Canadian’s most successful attempts came last year in the Open Sud de France and Sofia Open, where he reached the final. As a doubles player, Pospisil has had much more success on the tour – including reaching the final here in Indian Wells twice with Jack Sock.
Wolf, Looking to Make a Name for Himself
22-year-old J.J. Wolf had a rather late start to his 2021 season, first featuring in the ATP Los Cabos back in July. There, and in the subsequent tournament of the Atalanta Open, the young American was beaten in the first round by Brandon Nakashima and John Isner respectively.
In the rest of the US Open series, Wolf had to start from the qualifiers but could not make it past this stage. His last ATP tournament was the US Open where he lost to Kamil Majchrzak in straight sets. Most recently, he played in the Columbus Challenger where he reached the semis.
Wolf is starting in the Indian Wells Open with a wildcard and will hope to make the most of this chance.
To date, he has reached five Challenger finals, going the distance in four of them.
Pospisil v Wolf Prediction and Tip
Wolf is inexperienced and hasn’t had that much playing time on the tour this year. As for Pospisil, he may be rusty himself but his superior doubles pedigree and the overall experience should allow him to breeze into the next round comfortably.
