sa watch 2009: indian wells



No TSF tourney journey would be complete without a peek at what our favorite Brazilian duo — Marcelo Melo and Andre Sa — is up to. At the first Saturday of the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells, Calif., we spotted them in the middle of a scrimmage match against Bob and Mike Bryan. Both Marcelo and Andre were wearing their Centauro red.

On Sunday (we missed it, le sigh), the eighth-seeded team took out Paul-Henri Mathieu and Marat Safin in the first round, and are currently facing Ross Hutchins and Andy Murray (who took out Tommy Berdych and Nikki Kiefer). We hope for Sa’s curly hair and beauty marks to see another desert day!

Update: The Brits upset the Brazilians 6-1, 6-3.
