This is the last day for me.

First I saw Stepanek (AGAIN) and his partner this time is Moya. They just kicked Verdasco and Lalo out of the practice court. Next was Ferrero and Hewitt. There were also Grosjean, Clement and Chela plus some players I could not recognise. Nestor and Zimonjic were practicing in court 8 where their doubles vs Gonzo and Dima would take place later.

I went to Janko/Massu match and Peer was hitting her entourage, including her coach Conchita...

First up is Kiwi practicing with Seppi (???) I also saw Radek warming up and he really has a very flexible body. Quite a crowd with...

I arrived Indian Wells at about 11am. Men's quali matches started at 10am and Schuettler's match was 2nd on court 7, so I went directly to the tennis center. No entrance fee for today but there's $10 for parking and no re-entry

When I arrived in court 7, Igor was just about finished the match 6-1 6-3. Since it's more than 4 hours drive, I didn't put sunblock on until I reached the tennis center. Although I put them on immediately while sitting there waiting for Rainer's...
