I wonder if he'll still play IW? If he plays Acapulco and gets to the final he'll be in Mexico till Sunday March 3. Then on Monday March 4 he's playing an exo vs Del Po in New York. Then flying to IW for a hard court tournament with a day's practice seems a bit much! If he skips IW and does Acapulco, New York exo, 2 weeks training and then just Miami it would make more sense. Odd otherwise.
I hope he doesn't skip IW.
But the mens tournament doesn't begin until the 9th and he will have a bye. Probably, he won't play until the 11th at the earliest.
