Impressive Fritz looks ready to take the game to Coric

Croat playing well but not sure to confirm favouritism

Taylor Fritz is one of the most exciting young players in tennis

Fourth round
Sky Sports Arena, from 6pm Wednesday 

Roger Federer is making serene progress in the top half of the BNP Paribas Open draw, but for tennis purists there's a potential fourth-round delight in store between Borna Coric and Taylor Fritz in Indian Wells.

Something has to give with these fine talents and with Coric's greater experience getting the nod from the oddsmakers, there could be some value flying around with his American opponent.

Fritz can be considered at prices above 2-1 to upset the Croat, but it may be wiser to opt for a safer punt and back the outsider either on the total-games handicaps or to win at least a set.

Coric is asked to give up a start of 3.5 games by most layers so an interest on the favourite failing to post a straight-sets triumph looks the way to go.

Fritz is 8-11 to capture at least one set and considering he looks capable of becoming the more successful player in future and is competing in his home state of California, that price is difficult to quibble with.
