Former World No. 1 Novak Djokovic will clash against Victor Hanescu in the 2014 BNP Paribas Open second round on Sunday 9th March, which will kick off at 02:45 GMT, being played here on outdoor hard courts at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden in Indian Wells.

Novak Djokovic will be playing his first match here in BNP Paribas Open second round since losing Dubai Tennis Championships semi final to rival Roger Federer in three sets with a 6-3, 3-6, 2-6. Second seed should work hard more to regain old form and hopes to clinch first ATP title here in Indian Wells before heading to Sony Open Tennis this month ending. Djokovic also lost Australian Open quarter final to Stan Wawrinka at Rod Laver Arena, but he is looking forward to bounce back to clinch BNP Paribas Open.

Victor Hanescu has thrashed opening round opponent Elizabeth Ferris of United States in three sets with a 7-5, 3-6, 6-4, where he will have to play best tennis of his career to beat second seed Djokovic.

Both the players are meeting for the third time in thier career, where Djokovic is leading with a 6-0 win loss head-to-head record against Hanescu. The pair last meet at the 2011 French Open fourth round and Djokovic won the match in three sets with a 6-4, 6-1, 2-3 score line. As per the predictions, Djokovic is considered as heavy favorite to clinch victory in second round and secure place in the 2014 BNP Paribas Open third round.
