This is a pity that Pella didn't play Salinas and is not playing here either. Inspite of he spent some months in the top 100 (he returned back this week) he should focus on CH events and play ATP tournaments when he has the chance to do it. I believe he is making a mistake not playing these events.
I disagree. He's doing exactly the right thing, playing Indian Wells. His game is pretty interchangeable with the hard-courts, and the best option is to go and play with the best players in the world. It will all be valuable experience.
Besides, he qualified easily in the desert, so will immediately get a chance in the main draw.
