What a stadium!

All players love to be here and love to play in the main stadium in front of a special crowd here at Indian Wells.

It was another early day that began with Sorana Cirstea. My colleague Sven Groeneveld and I were on court with her together with her full-time coach Victor Ionita.

Angelique Kerber came out early again with Torben, her coach.

Torben is a very good player and coach. He always finds a great balance between hitting with Angelique and doing some drills.

Andrea Petkovic was warming up with her coach Petar Popovic getting ready for the match against Monica Puig. Both players had been to Las Vegas. A bit unfortunate that they had to play against each other that early in the tournament. Monica Puig won the match, but it was a very close one.

Ana Ivanovic was hitting as well and seems to be in good shape! Looking forward to seeing her play here. She won the event in 2008.

Later during the day I had a practice with Caroline Wozniacki. She is traveling with Jean-Rene Liznard, a former player.

I am sure it will be another incredible day tomorrow with great matches and players to see practice.

Take care,
