This week Ruben (ATP-145) tries to reach the main draw at Indian Wells (United States, ATP Masters 1000). In the first qualifying round he competes against a Brit.
Ruben starts the qualifying tournament against the British Daniel Evans (ATP-100), who has been in very good shape for several weeks and played the final at the ATP tournament of Delray Beach. In 2012 Ruben won their only previous encounter. If Ruben wins, he will face Noah Rubin (ATP-153) or Yannick Maden (ATP-119).
