With Andy Murray already out and a host of big names set to face each other in the early rounds, this year's Indian Wells tournament is there for the taking.
The first of those big clashes was set up on Sunday after Juan Martin del Potro and Novak Djokovic both cruised through their second round ties.
Britain's Kyle Edmund put up a strong fight against Djokovic but ultimately fell short as the world number two came through their battle 6-4 7-6.
Meanwhile, Del Potro was faced by fellow Argentine Federico Delbonis and managed to secure a 7-6 6-3 victory in a match that also featured one of the shots of 2017 so far.
The 2009 US Open winner Del Potro was backed into a corner during one particular rally in the first set but somehow walked away the winner after a stunning 'hot-dog' lob.
Delbonis had initially played a brilliant point, drawing his opponent towards the net with a drop shot before executing a fine lob of his own that would have been enough to beat most players on the tour.
However, as you can see in the video below, even with his back to the net Del Potro played a sweet tweener through his legs.
You can forgive Delbonis for thinking the shot would bounce wide or long, Del Potro probably thought the same thing.
Instead, it found the corner of the court and both players looked equally astonished although obviously for different reasons.
Del Potro, 28, has been heavily plagued by injuries over the last few years but on his day he can more than match the sport's very best.
In fact, only last year he beat his next opponent Djokovic in the last-64 of the Olympics in Rio.
The Serbian has won their only meeting in 2017, though, after coming back from a set down to win in Mexico last month and also boasts an overall record of 12-4 over Del Potro.
