Darn , I always enjoy watching him play doubles . 8th alternate doesn't sound real promising for getting in the draw

Jo lost to Berdych in Dubai, so can't now overtake Richard as world no. 9 before IW.

DelPo is having an MRI on his wrist and following a physical rehab programme to hopefully avoid surgery. He's still in the IW draw and has a few more days to try and recover.

Josh Berry doing Gasqut at 2:18. Much better than what he did during the WTF:

It's amazing how quickly one can get "famous" these days. It used to be one has to actually do something substantial and everybody else would just toil in obscurity.

Well, injuries to Ferrer (hip) and Del Potro (left wrist) - both questionable for Indian Wells. I think Delpo will not play because I can't see a chronic injury getting better that quickly. Ferrer might recover enough to try it, or he might just wait until Miami where he is defending 600 points. Murray still isn't sharp from what I've seen of his match against Gilles - Gilles was hitting really well though.

smucav's list currently has them as 7th alternate. Melzer(/Haas) is out for sure. Del Potro(/Cilic) is doubtful. Youzhny(/Mirnyi) doubtful. There is the smallest of chances that they will be in the draw.

I would guess that someone flew this to Dubai. He's in a lot of demand. For a 17 year old, he sure has done a great job marketing himself. Was there in Wimbledon. Been on a couple of shows on ESPN and Sky Sports. He did some impersonations of ESPN presenters. In WTF, he got access all the way up to the players rooms(in the stadium).

I don't know where Neil Harman (The Times journalist) is getting his info from, but he is a reliable source:

Neil Harman ‏@NeilHarmanTimes 22 mins
Confirmed for first year of @iptl Nadal, Djokovic, Murray, Serena Williams, Azarenka, Wozniacki; Agassi and Sampras

Neil Harman ‏@NeilHarmanTimes 18 mins
In the second categories for draft, Berdych, Ferrer, Tsonga, A Radwanska; Gasquet, Raonic, Haas, Isner, Ivanovic, Stosur, Stephens

Neil Harman ‏@NeilHarmanTimes 12 mins
@normansweden And how could I forget @stanwawrinka? Shame on me.....

It's official. @iptl also talked about it. I am assuming that @iptl is the official account because @globosport(Bhupathi's company) retweeted it.

Yes, I think @iptl is the official account. Strangely, earlier when I checked @iptl from Harman's link, they hadn't tweeted the news. Now that they have, they don't mention Richard in their list of draft players.

Is that officially confirmed?

I saw some of the Ferrer match last night , and he was in a lot of pain. Although I have no official information it is hard to believe he would be able to play his style of tennis being that impaired in his movement.
Also , he has never played well in Indian Wells. Last year he lost in the second round. So he has nothing to defend. This is a good tournament for him to skip , so that he can be in good shape for the clay court events that are
the bulk of his points.
Shame , though , I always like Ferrer. He is a very pleasant guy to fans and easy on the eyes
But this is great news for Richard . Hope he can make the most of this little bump up the seedings
