Oracle Challenger Series Indian Wells Results
(March 1, 2019) Jennifer Brady won the battle of the Americans in her quarterfinal matchup with Nicole Gibbs, coming out on top 7-5, 6-0. No. 1 seed Wang Qiang also continued her dominating performance, rolling through Karolina Pliskova 6-4, 6-4. Zarina Diyas and Viktorija Golubic also advanced to the semifinals on Saturday. On the men’s side, No. 1 seed Kyle Edmund needed three sets to overcome Yannick Maden, 3-6, 6-0, 6-3, while seventh-seeded Andrey Rublev registered a dominating performance in his match against Alex Bolt, 6-4, 6-3. Daniel Evans and Lloyd Harris complete the list of semifinalists.
In addition to the singles semifinals, the championship matches for both the men’s and women’s doubles will also be played on Saturday. Americans JC Aragone / Marcos Giron take on Miomir Kecmanovic / Dominik Koepfer; while Taylor Townsend and Yanina Wickmayer will look to defend their title against Vera Lapko / Mandy Minella.
Additionally, for the second year in a row American Reilly Opelka’s performance in the Oracle Challenger Series earned him a wild card into the main draw at the BNP Paribas Open, awarded to the top two finishers in the Series. Though he only played at Chicago last fall, Opelka’s finals appearance in that event was enough to secure him the wild card. The additional women’s spot will be awarded based on the results this weekend.
