I don't see one article in any of those site's news sections highlighting it so far.

I guess it will have to hit one of the top 3 players before it gets mentioned.

I don't care if it doesn't look good for the tournament to report it; to not mention it is unfair to the players.

If I've missed seeing this story on any of these sites, please correct me.

I've noticed that as well. I mean with the amount of people affected- or should I say infected, you would think the story would be front and center. Then again when a billionaire own the event he's doing everything in his power to keep it hush- and with his deep pockets that's a lot of power.

In Mexico they have Montezuma's revenge, in Indian Wells they have Williams Revenge ...

Agreed, especially with regards to the tournament website.
But for the ATP and WTA sites? So much for their integrity.
With the story "front and center" in the "free press", it's made even more conspicuous by its absence.

Federer said in his interview that he still isn`t feeling well and is only looking day by day.
He mentioned that playing a guy ranked outside top 100 in R1 and then a big server who will keep the points short he will have his chances to advance.But not beeing 100% healthy it will be a struggle for Federer against a baseliner who will play lots of longer rallies.

The Indian Wells epidemic claims Mike Bryan

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo
