Sorry guys, byt it looks like Masha has withdrawn from Indian Wells. It isn't official as such yet, but I reckon it will be confirmed soon.

Stuart, I know it's not official but there is a lot of word spreading about a withdrawal.

She's withdrawn from singles out of precaution but she's still playing doubles with Vesnina or another Russian with a name beginning with V.

I read that somewhere last night after about 5 beers so I can't really fathom out exact details.

No - it's not good that she's out of the singles, though it is a bit reassuring to hear that she's playing doubles. Initially, I thought she was out of the tournament, full-stop.

Maria has withdrawn from the singles but is playing the doubles. It's hard to interpret what this means. I suspect she has confidence issues with the shoulder and wants to wait til its 100%. On the other hand, it shows she is still hungry as ever, as she clearly does not want to compete in a singles event unless she thinks she can win it! Get well soon Maria!
