MAIN DRAW HIGHLIGHTS

World No. 1 Roger Federer comes in as the top seed for the fifth consecutive year and the former three-time champion (2004-06) will be looking to capture his first title in 2008. Federer will take on the winner of Sergio Roitman and Guillermo Garcia-Lopez in his opening round match. The first seed he could play is No. 25 Nicolas Almagro in the third round.

Federer's top half of the draw includes possible fourth round opponents No. 15 Tommy Robredo or No. 23 Ivan Ljubicic along with quarterfinal opponents No. 6 Andy Roddick or No. 11 Andy Murray, both two-time ATP winners this season.

Roddick and Murray have tricky opening round matches. The American plays the winner of Tommy Haas and Julien Benneteau while the British No. 1 takes on the Jurgen Melzer and Marat Safin survivor. The first seed Murray could face is No. 20 Ivo Karlovic in the third round.

In the second quarter of the draw, the highest seeds are No. 4 Nikolay Davydenko, No. 7 David Nalbandian, No. 12 Fernando Gonzalez and No. 13 Mikhail Youzhny. No. 24 and two-time winner Lleyton Hewitt also is in that section. Hewitt opens against the winner of Luis Horna-Las Vegas champion Sam Querrey.

In the bottom half of the draw (third quarter), No. 3 and last year's finalist Novak Djokovic, No. 5 David Ferrer, No. 10 Tomas Berdych and No. 16 Guillermo Canas, who upset Roger Federer last year, are the highest seeds. Six of the 12 qualifiers in the tournament are also in this section of the draw. Djokovic's first seeded opponent is No. 27 Philipp Kohlschreiber and he could meet Canas or No. 21 Juan Monaco in the fourth round.

In the final quarter of the draw, No. 2 and defending champion Rafael Nadal opens against qualifier Santiago Giraldo or Austrian Werner Eschauer. Nadal could meet countryman and close friend Feliciano Lopez, the No. 32 seed, in the third round. Possible fourth round opponents include either Frenchmen No. 14 Paul-Henri Mathieu or No. 17/Australian Open runner-up Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Nadal lost to Tsonga in the semifinals in Melbourne.

No. 8 Richard Gasquet and No. 9 James Blake are the highest seeds in Nadal's section. He could meet one of them in the quarterfinals. Gasquet opens with the winner of countryman Sebastien Grosjean and Robin Soderling while Blake takes on the winner of Potito Starace and Marc Gicquel.

The wild cards in the tournament are Mario Ancic (vs. Monfils) and Americans Robby Ginepri (vs. Vincent Spadea), John Isner (vs. Simone Bolelli), Jesse Levine (vs. Stanislas Wawrinka), and Donald Young (vs.qualifier Bobby Reynolds).

DOUBLES HIGHLIGHTS

The top eight seeded teams are: 1) Bob-Mike Bryan, two-time finalists (2003, ’06) and playing in Indian Wells for the 10th straight year, 2) Simon Aspelin-Julian Knowle, 3) Daniel Nestor-Nenad Zimonjic, 4) Jonathan Erlich-Andy Ram, 5) Martin Damm-Pavel Vizner, 6) Mahesh Bhupathi-Mark Knowles, 7) Arnaud Clement-Michael Llodra, and 8) Paul Hanley-Leander Paes.

In last year’s final, Damm-Paes (no longer playing together) defeated Erlich-Ram 6-4, 6-4. Knowles-Nestor (also no longer together) have captured the title four times (1997, 2002, ’05-06).

The top-seeded Bryans are also looking to win their first ATP title of the season after four runner-up showings in five tournaments (Sydney, Delray Beach, San Jose, Las Vegas). The Bryans are 16-5 this season.

The No. 1 team in the Stanford ATP Doubles Race is Erlich-Ram, who captured their first Grand Slam title together at the Australian Open in January.
