Andy Murray reacted to the loaded bottom quarter at Indian Wells much like any tennis fan would, calling it an ''amazing draw" that should produce some big first-week matchups.
The section has No. 2 Novak Djokovic, No. 6 Rafael Nadal and No. 9 Roger Federer all in the same quarter, with the other seeds being Juan Martin del Potro, Nick Kyrgios, Alexander Zverev, Fernando Verdasco and Steve Johnson.
Murray did a double take when he looked at the draw, saying, "I've never seen anything like that."
Between the top three and Del Potro, there are 45 Grand Slams won in that portion of the draw. Kyrgios, 21, and Zverev, 19, are among the most talked-about young players on tour, and could play in the third round. Djokovic could get Del Potro in that round, a rematch of their recent meeting in Acapulco. Djokovic won that match in three sets.
