An Executive Summary of today's Daily Tennis News

ATP Hindrance Rule Debated

The ATP hindrance rule got once over after Mardy Fish was called for interference at deuce in the ninth game of the second set of his straight set loss to Matthew Ebden at the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells.

Fish yelled out "Come on" after he hit a crosscourt forehand volley, but Edben managed to chase it down and make contact with the ball, even though he did little with it and could not put it over the net.

However, the chair umpire awarded the point to Edben, as he believed Fish's vocal outburst hindered what could have been a successful return from Ebden.


Petrova Setting Sights on Her Next Site

As she ponders the inevitable slow wind-down of her career at nearly 30, Nadia Petrova has her eye on a base in the US when she's finally done with the game. The Russian, currently based in Miami, said at the Indian Wells Masters that she has applied for green card permanent residency and hopes to make Florida her future home.

"I'd like to live in the States when I'm done with my career," said the winner of ten titles who had a poor 2011 campaign as she searched for a coach and let her results slide. "I've traveled the world and I feel very comfortable in South Florida. 


Federer is Keeping an Eye on the Local Virus Attack

Roger Federer posted a win in less than an hour in a fast start at the Indian Wells Masters which left the Swiss time to recover as he fights the virus which is sweeping the men's and women's tournament.

After hammering American wild card Denis Kudla 6-4, 6-1, the third seed admitted that he was not on the top of his game. The virus which is around the grounds has claimed numerous victims among players.
