The Greek champion was defeated with 7-5, 6-0 by Christina McHale at her opening game in Indian Wells.
Sakkaris’ American opponent was on a very good day and was lucky enough in several points especially in the first set. On the other hand, Sakkari was not on a good day and although he tried quite a lot in the first set, in the second seemed to be out of potential and psychology, losing easily by 6-0.
The second round of the tournament begins this evening and the top names of the draw are expected to appear on the court, including Simona Halep, No 2 on the board, who is facing Barbora Strýcová.
