Wawrinka Has No Trouble Advancing to Third Round in Indian Wells

INDIAN WELLS, Calif -- Third seed Stan Wawrinka advanced to the third round of the BNP Paribas Open with a second round straight-sets 6-3, 6-4 win over Paolo Lorenzi.

This year marked the Swiss's 10th appearance in Indian Wells as he attempts to win his first BNP Paribas Open title. He has reached the quarterfinals twice--in 2008 where he lost to Novak Djokovic and in 2011 where he lost to his compatriot Roger Federer.
