Del Potro & Gonzalez out of Indian Wells Potro's injury woes continue as he cites his old gammy right wrist as his reason for pulling out. Gonzalez has pulled out for a noble cause as he aims to stay in Chile to help out those affected in the Chilean earthquake.

Rafael Nadal has also announced today that he will be playing in Indian Wells after he spent the last few weeks practising.

Del Potro's pullout from this tournament means that victory for Nikolay Davydenko, who has no points to defend at all, will send DelPo to 6th in the Rankings. Gonzalez will almost certainly fall back to 12th as Tsonga has 45 points to defend and Gonzalez will drop 90, though Verdasco has 180 points to defend from reaching the quarters last year. Theoretically Youznhy could overtake him as well with a run to the final, but 13th is as low as Gonzalez could go.
