The list from Tennis.Com is pretty much complete now.

Womens

#2 is Graf and #1 is Serena. I wonder if these two ever played who would win? I remember as a kid Graf would just dominate everything and she won each Grand Slam at least 4 times which is just mind blowing

Mens

#2 Laver and #1 is Federer. Bit surprised Nadal isn't #2 and it would be poetic as Nadal spent 160 straight weeks as #2 while Fed was #1.

oh one more thing, the parking lot is a large grass/dirt field across the street from the main entrance. there are row markers but it's so big that you may get lost for a while in the dark trying to find your car at night. make sure to save your car's location on your phone, or memorize exactly where it is before leaving the lot.

Graf was sublimely skilled and powerful for her era, but Serena would just bludgeon her right off the court. Serena straddles the divide between WTA and ATP in terms of consistent shot power, and that is enough to take down any female competitor no matter how much racquet wizardry they've got.

until it's revealed tomorrow, you never know. they might choose Ernests Gulbis just for fun (or maybe they actually really like him)

No surprise Fed and Serena take the top spots. The thing that has stood out about Federer for me is how insanely popular he is compared to his peers. When Andy Murray was facing Federer in the Wimbledon final and with a chance to be the first British man in what 70+years to win the title, the crowd was still mostly pro-Fed. The next year against Djokovic in the finals against Murray the crowd was what 90% Murray? It's not like Djoker was a slouch either in terms of popularity. Last year at the Rogers Cup when Shapo upset Nadal the crowd was what 90% pro Shapo, I often wondered if that match was played against Fed what the split would be. Federer no matter where he plays, it's always a home crowd anywhere in the world except Spain or Serbia. Congratulations to Federer well deserved GOAT! Now stop winning majors so Nadal can catch up!

Rafa was withdrawn from Indian Wells and Miami

I hope he's back for clay court season, tennis sucks without him

One up and one down at Indian Wells - Polansky lost to Martin Klizan who will now face Vasek in the semi-finals on Saturday.

Delpo and Sasha Zverev will take to the court as soon as the ladies match is complete (could be another 30-45 minutes). Match is on TSN2.

Well, that was pretty quick, Delpo made short work of Zverev (6-4 6-2) and will face Kevin Anderson in the Acapulco final.

Tough luck for Vasek today, but he's played a lot of tennis lately and having an extra day off to rest before qualifying statrts for the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells might be just what the doctor ordered.

/First ATP 500 title since 2013

Shapo not playing at Indian Wells? I don't see his name in the qualis.. Was hoping he and even Auger might be in that qualifying draw but I guess Auger's ranking might still be a bit low. Raonic made the main draw... barely after all the withdrawals.

Edit... Scrap that... Just the 32 seeds list is up there on wikipedia. Assuming Shapo will play with Raonic in the main draw. Polansky and Vasek into the qualifying tournament.

Raonic and Shapovalov are comfortably in the main draw. It's a 96 man event.

Pospisil, Polansky and Auger are in the qualifying.

I honestly don't know who to cheer for these next 2 events, would love to see El Shapo play Fed just to see where he is at in his development.

Looking at the odds for the French Open I saw that Fed was 18-1 on some sites, may not be a bad bet if he plays and Nadal doesn't then he's got a chance.

Vasek is the top seed in the men's qualifying draw at Indian Wells. Peter Polansky and Felix Auger-Aliassime are also in the mix (Felix has a tough match against Bjorn Fratangelo later today).

Vasek and Polansky won today. Auger is just about to play against a seeded player. Big ask but could make it 3/3 for the canadians with a win.
