Federer, Nadal, Murray ready for BNP Paribas Open

Early this afternoon, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray will have their first offical Q&A sessions here at the BNP Paribas Open.

We’re interested to hear about Nadal and how his knee issue is working for him on the hardcourts. He was out at the practice courts Wednesday san knees brace or wrap.

Fans are anxious to see him back.

Speaking of fans, the light clouds hovering over the entire valley — and cooler temps than the past three days — hasn’t deterred  the masses from getting ready for today’s matches. The biggest crowd so far; the ring around the practice courts.

Reports out of the media center is that the rain has started in the Cabazon area, but has not reached the valley — yet.

 Play is underway on every court.
