Former World No. 1 Garbine Muguruza gets her BNP Paribas Open campaign underway in Indian Wells on Friday when she takes on American qualifier Lauren Davis in the second round.

Two-time Grand Slam champion Garbine Muguruza faces what could be a challenging test in her Indian Wells opener on Friday against former World No. 26 Lauren Davis.

Muguruza first competed at the BNP Paribas Open back in 2013 when she qualified for the main draw as a teenager and made it all the way to the fourth round. However, Muguruza has only managed to make it back to that stage once since her debut, making the quarter-finals in 2017, while she lost her opening match in 2018 against another American in Saschia Vickery. Could lightning strike twice on Friday in the Californian desert?

Coming off an extremely disappointing season in which she slipped from No. 2 to No. 18 last year, Muguruza is in desperate need of a deep run at a big tournament. Seeded 20th in Indian Wells this season, Muguruza only made one quarter-final after her semi-final run at the French Open, illustrating just how much of a non-factor she was during the second half of the season. The Spaniard lost in the second round of Wimbledon and the U.S. Open and just generally failed to make an impact as her forehand began to misfire more frequently and her coaching relationship with Sam Sumyk remained as dysfunctional as ever (at least in the public eye on court).

However, surely it’s only a matter of time before Muguruza recaptures her best tennis and becomes a force again? You don’t win two Grand Slams before the age of 23 if you don’t have serious talent. Effort has never been the issue with Muguruza, but she just can’t seem to get going no matter how hard she tries – and things haven’t really gotten any better so far in 2019, with the 25-year-old withdrawing before second round of Sydney and losing in the fourth round of the Australian Open, the quarter-finals of Hua Hin (her second defeat to teenager Dayana Yastremska) and the third round of Dubai. Furthermore, all of those defeats have been in straight sets, including a 6-3 6-1 beatdown at the hands of Karolina Pliskova in Melbourne and a 6-1 6-2 demolition by Elina Svitolina in Dubai.

As mentioned, Muguruza lost to a low-ranked American in her first match at Indian Wells last year, going down to wildcard Sachia Vickery. Can she avoid the same fate against the current World No. 199 on Friday?

Lauren Davis is a far better player than that ranking suggests though. The diminutive American put together her best season in 2017 after winning her maiden WTA title in Auckland, reaching quarter-finals in Doha, Dubai and Rabat and the fourth round here in Indian Wells, hitting a career-high ranking of No. 26. Davis would go on to make the third round of the Australian Open to kick off 2018 and came agonisingly close to pulling off what would have been the biggest win of her career, but she went down in a thriller against World No. 1 Simona Halep, losing 15-13 in a marathon encounter.

From there, Davis hasn’t had much to cheer about. She got injured and missed the entire European clay-court season and actually didn’t win a tour-level match since the Australian Open for the remainder of 2018, dropping to as low as No. 262 in the world before salvaging her ranking slightly with a run to the final after qualifying for the $125k Series event in Houston in her last tournament for the season. The 25-year-old finally broke her near 12-month drought at tour-level by winning a round in Auckland (lost to Venus Williams in R2), but she failed to qualify for the Australian Open and toppled back out of the top 200 as she couldn’t defend her third round points. Davis arrived at Indian Wells at No. 199 after a run to the Newport Beach semi-finals, but she scored a valuable main draw win after receiving a wildcard into the tournament, taking out Anna Schmiedlova 7-6(2) 6-2 to earn a shot at Muguruza in the second round.

Muguruza won their only previous clash 6-2 6-0 on the grass of s-Hertogenbosch back in 2013, but Davis has absolutely nothing to lose in this encounter. All the pressure is on Muguruza, and it will be interesting to see how she performs on Friday. Of course, Muguruza has the bigger weapons and normally would be able to dictate this match-up, but she’s down on confidence and hasn’t been playing well for some time now. The same applies for Davis, but if she can approach this match with a nothing-to-lose mindset, you never know might what happen. Muguruza should win, but a Davis upset wouldn’t be too surprising.

Hello Again and Thanks for reading it is I David "IT40" Ellenberger with an update on the status of my lawsuit against Alphabet inc case # 4:20-CV-04877-SBA  and the website and life in general. By now if you regularly visit you may have read this section "author info" or Bio. So I am adding to it with more bio and more info. I originally liked the idea of voting on the internet 20-25 years ago when I first got online with WebTV (does anyone remember that?).

The technology at that time was not advanced enough to easily be able to vote online or watch videos or much else for that matter but I was hooked and look at what we can do now with videos, IOT, and everything else, but I digress. I started about 5 years ago and the user base has been going up steadily ever since. I wanted to be another Facebook, with music and voting and that is all coming together slowly but surely. BTW if you want to help or have any interest please feel free to email me anytime.

Now in my previous Author Info or bio page I made it clear or at least I thought I made it clear, I am personally suing Alphabet inc. in Federal Court for Fraud. I have evidence to prove they are not counting all the pageviews, among other things and defrauding myself and probably millions of other website owners and content creators out of Billions of dollars. So if I wasn't clear or you didn't know it's true I am suing Alphabet inc. in Federal Court for Fraud the case was recently moved from my state of Kentucky to N. California to make it easier for Alphabet inc. to steam roll me or so they think. Needless to say if you are interested and I hope you are you can look the case up online under my name "David Russell Ellenberger" or the case # which is 4:20-CV-04877-SBA.

Now, I want to make it clear to you and everyone that I am not suing Alphabet inc. aka Google for fraud just because I want a million dollars for nothing. I am suing Google for fraud because I think they are committing  a serious crime with worldwide and societal ramifications, it is a  very serious problem.  I am suing Google for fraud because to put it simply the analytics numbers don't add up at least not in my favor or yours, there is something very fishy going on with the Google analytics numbers. Of course Google has an excuse for every one of them but I have reasons and the actual numbers and they don't add up, more about the numbers later.

Companies like Google are making Billions of dollars a year in profits telling us data is the most valuable thing and misleading us and misdirecting the media and the world every chance they can.  Now data is valuable and they are making billions in profits seemingly like magic but there is no magic to it just corruption and lies. One thing Alphabet inc. aka Google is really making their money from and that is advertising dollars and they are putting all of this advertising on the websites other people have created.

Websites that I have created and  websites you have created and websites millions of others around the world have created websites or content. For example Just writing a text is creating content and that's where Google puts the billions in advertising they receive and keeping most of it for themselves. Yes content others have created and yet somehow they are keeping almost all of these billions for themselves and not distributing it equitably to the real workers the true content creators who actually deserve the advertising monies. Google has made it's billions on the backs of you and me. Think about that for a minute, how can they continue to justify this? They Can't, it has to change.

For example if I were to prevail in the current lawsuit just half of the monies or $20 billion put into a basic account and compounded at 5% annually we could realistically employ over 80,000 people at $24,000 a year, indefinitely.  Sounds unbelievable but its true and if we only employed 40,000 people we could pay them approx. $48,000 a year indefinitely. Its all true. Its simply a matter of having the money and the will to do it. Now is 40,000 people a lot well yes it would be a lot of employees but with more money simply put into a trust account we could employ more people

I David Russell Ellenberger through my website am suing Google to try to help right a wrong. A wrong committed by Google that has simply gotten out of hand. Most people may think they can't do anything about it. Nothing can stop Google, the politicians don't care they use all of Googles data to further their own campaigns and line their own pockets while the rest of us keep on creating the content for Google, nothing can be done, this however is not the case, we can do something.

The politicians and Alphabet inc. aka Google have done nothing to help society at large other than organize it so they can keep more money in secret and pay off all their buddies with their fraudulently obtained money. It's gotten so bad that the politicians and others in control won't even talk about it, they ignore it and hope it goes away, they won't even try to stop google because it is helping them too much and maybe they are scared of Google or who knows what they may be thinking. But it looks like fraud and it's coming to an end.

I'm telling you we can do something and I David Russell Ellenberger an average citizen Content Creator am saying to you, I'm not scared of Google because I have nothing left to loose.  I David Russell Ellenberger am telling you there is something you too can do, if nothing else, tell all your friends to come to aka IT40, believe these words and Create your Content.

Further I promise to you and all who read this if we do prevail in the lawsuit against Alphabet Inc. We will use half of any monies we may receive to pay "content creators" a living wage. I pledge to anyone who is reading this, we will use half of any monies we may receive to help those who really do want to work on the internet and create content and tell us what they think. We will use half of any money so you can Get Paid, we want you to get paid for the content you create and get paid everyday and Get Paid to Vote create data and to be able to do this work online and from your home or anywhere in the world you care to be. Because in the words of an ancient scholar Y-O-U are the business Y-O-U are creating all the data, Y-O-U are the content creators and Y-O-U are all that matters.

Now the main thing I want you to take away form this and to know, Alphabet inc. is and has been committing fraud against you, me and everyone who uses the internet. I don't think Google started out to defraud the world it has just degenerated into this endless morass of corruption and fraud and no one seems to care, Well I care and I know you care too.  Sadly Google has been doing this with impunity for years and it is only getting worse. Please don't let them fool you with their lies and obfuscation. Do some research create some content build a website and research the analytics numbers you will find I am right. Google owes you, me and everyone online thousands if not 10's of thousands of dollars for all the data and advertising dollars they have co-opted from you and the rest of the world. So join with me don't use any Google products or file your own lawsuit in federal court against Alphabet inc. I will be glad to help you any way I can and show you how to do it if need be. It will take a sincere effort on your part but it will definitely help your self esteem, society and the world.

Now that's about all I have to say on this subject for now.  I will tell you this if you want more information or you have questions or comments for me, my email is [email protected] Thank you for reading looking and listening and believing in Please tell all your friends about us and don't forget to vote Thumbs up or down and refresh your page when your done. One last Thing, I need all the help I can get I am only 1 person but together and with todays technology we can move mountains and reframe society and our world the way we want it to be. One final note let me tell you about a new website coming to the world called Thank you ttyl
