Contradictory reports make it impossible to know whether Federer will make his way to Indian Wells this month. According to the rumor mill he’s expected to withdraw but on his own website Federer says this:
Dear Fans I am feeling really good again and I was happy to hear from my doctor today that I have the green light to start working out again so I plan to try and play in Indian Wells next week. See you all soon! Roger
While I’m a Federer fan, the likelihood that I would catch Fed on anything but the jumbo screen is very small. I like my live tennis up close and personal. Seeing Federer would mean blowing my budget for court side seats in the main stadium. No can do!
Even if it’s just catching him on the jumbo screen, I’d still like to know he’s around in Indian Wells.
