After initially accepting a wild card into the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells qualifying draw, 1999 champion Mark Philippoussis withdrew his request. The former world No. 8 is said to have accepted a spot in a senior tournament in Europe instead. Philippoussis recently reached the final of the ATP senior event in Delray Beach, falling to former coach Pat Cash in the final. The 34-year-old Philippoussis hasn’t won a match on the ATP tour since 2006.
