Djokovic to make a strong push at BNP PARIBAS OPEN

By: Jawad Bisharat

Novak Djokovic looks to make a strong push at BNP Paribas Open.

Recently working with coach Radek Stepanek and Andre Agassi, the pressure is on for Novak to have a good performance at this weeks BNP Paribas Open.

The draw is missing one very notable name in Rafael Nadal. Nadal is out with a hip injury and his return to the tour is still unknown.

Novak himself is returning from an elbow injury that sidelined him for the last 5 months of 2017. His return at the Australian Open was uneventful, losing in the round of 16 to up and comer Chung Hyeon of south Korea.

In watching Novak on the practice court today, his strokes looked like the Novak we all know and love, however he didn't seem well. Consistently blowing his nose and asking for a towel, Novak looked as if he was fighting off a cold. Lets hope it is nothing too serious and he is able to give his best effort this week.

Federer comes off his defense of his Australian Open title and is the favorite to take the BNP Paribas Open although there are several players who have a legitimate shot at stopping Federer's run. Stay tuned for exclusive pic, videos and behind the scenes look at the BNP Paribas Open.

Further solidifying him as tennis's "greatest of all time", Federer could become the oldest male tennis player to reach the #1 ranking.  Federer would need to reach the semi-finals at this weeks ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament in Rotterdam.

Trailing Nadal in the standings by just 155 points, Roger knew this was his opportunity to make a move. Federer is playing the ABN AMRO for his ninth time.

Admittedly, Roger never expected to win the Australian Open and have a shot at regaining the #1 spot. Saying in his press conference ahead of the tournament "I actually thought I'd be home in Febuary and going into the mountains. I did not expect to win Melbourne."

"But now all options are open. It would again be a wonderful adventure if I could become number 1 again, a big surprise. Then I knew Rotterdam was an options."

"My Team and I are enjoying the challenge. We're going for it"

Roger will face qualifier Ruben Behelmans in the first round.

ABN AMRO is welcoming some of tennis biggest names. With a wild card given to Federer, it will not be an easy road to the semi-finals. Standing in his way will be Alexander Zverev, Stan Wawrinka, and #9 seed Giles Muller.

World No. 1 Serena Williams has withdrawn from the 2017 BNP Paribas Open

World No. 1 Serena Williams has withdrawn from the 2017 BNP Paribas Open due to a left knee injury. Below is a quote from Serena:
Kerber to regain #1 ranking.

"Sadly, I have to withdraw from the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells and the Miami Open. I have not been able to train due to my knees and am disappointed I cannot be there. I will keep moving forward and continue to be positive. I look forward to being back as soon as I can."

Appears Serena will be withdrawing from not only the BNP Paribis Open but the Miami as well. 
This will allow Kerber to regain # 1 WTA ranking. 

A revised WTA draw will be updated shortly
