After solid performances in the early rounds at BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, HEAD pro Andy Murray continued his dominance on the court besting World No. 2 Roger Federer in a close match 6-3, 4-6, 6-1 to earn a trip to the finals.
Murray, who plays with a MicroGel Radical MP, got off to a fast start at the tournament winning his first five matches dropping only one set. In the finals, strong wind conditions and a formidable opponent proved to be too much for Murray as he lost to top-ranked Rafael Nadal in straight sets 6-1, 6-2.
HEAD has been equally successful in the women’s completion with pro Victoria Azarenka reaching the semifinal round after a strong performance defeating World No. 2 Dinara Safina 6-7(4), 6-1, 6-3. In the semifinals, Azarenka was defeated by eventually winner and doubles partner Vera Zvonareva.
Azarenka also shined in doubles competition with Zvonareva capturing the title after beating their opponents in a hard-faught match 6-3, 3-6, 10-5. Azarenka's weapon of choice is the MicroGel Extreme Pro with Teflon.
