An Executive Summary of today's Daily Tennis News

Coach Vajda Was In Djokovic’s Box In Indian Wells Sunday 

Nobody knows Novak Djokovic like Marian Vajda, the long-time coach who stepped aside for something of a sabbatical this year to spend more time with his family and handed the reins over to Boris Becker. And this year he thinks patience will be required before the world no.2 maximizes the knowledge of big match situations he can acquire from the German legend.

Vajda was back in the coaching box for the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells, where Djokovic won his first title of 2014 after disappointments at both the Australian Open and Dubai Duty Free Championships, where Becker filled the role of main coach.


Nadal Was Ready For Indian Wells

Rafael Nadal's occasional coach believes that even his celebrated client can sometimes be blocked by insecurities, especially when playing away from his beloved clay, Francisco Roig, who substitutes on the road several times a year in order to give Nadal's permanent coach uncle Toni a bit of a rest at home, said the world No. 1 can fall victim to poor form and psychological issues on occasion.


Djokovic Dreams Of The Perfect Tennis Calendar

Novak Djokovic is dreaming of the perfect tennis calendar - which he admits will almost surely never be realized.

"In an ideal world, Australian Open can start three, four weeks later. Having one of the four grand slams right at the start of the season is a little bit too early," said the Serb of the January major. "But I have a sense that people are just too afraid of going towards some rational changes or improvements or just something that they are always afraid it can disturb the history and the culture that this sport possesses."


After Indian Wells Loss, Murray Has Been Working

Andy Murray enjoys two things above all others in tennis, winning major trophies and working hard in preparation for such triumphs. And the Wimbledon champion who, by his own admission is still some way short of recapturing his best form after back surgery late last year, has been utilizing the last few days away from the public gaze to put in the hard yards.

Murray headed for his Miami apartment on Biscayne Boulevard and the familiarity of his regular training base at Crandon Park as soon as he lost to Milos Raonic in last week’s BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells.


Davis Cup Tie In Indian Wells? Don’t Count On It

Despite having first-class facilities to hand, staging an American Davis Cup tie would be an almost impossible task for the newly expanded Indian Wells Tennis Garden, with tournament CEO Raymond Moore blaming inconvenient scheduling vis-a-vis his annual Masters 1000 with making a Davis tie all but logistically impossible,

Added to the logistics are the onerous conditions laid down by the USTA: "We think about Davis Cup every year, but, the financial conditions of running a Davis Cup are not friendly towards the promoter," said former player Moore.
