Indian Wells (USA): Indian tennis sensation
Somdev Devvarman set up a dream match against world number one
Rafael Nadal after his stunning three-set win over Xavier
Malisse in the BNP Paribas ATP Masters here.

Somdev shocked Belgium`s Malisse 6-1, 3-6, 7-6(5) in his
third round match in the USD 3,64,500 hard court tournament.

It will be Somdev`s second big match of his life after
playing against multiple Grand Slam champion Roger Federer in
Dubai last month.

Nadal beat American qualifier Ryan Sweeting 6-3, 6-1 to
move to the pre-quarterfinals and then delayed his post match
interview to watch the final set tie-breaker of the
Somdev-Mailsse match.

Somdev broke Malisee` serve twice and dropped his own
once apart from saving a breakpoint en route to the win.
