Rafael Nadal & Roger Federer Ready For Indian Wells 2015 Tennis

The 2015 Indian Wells tennis event will continue on Sunday from California with key players scheduled for action in both the men’s and women’s draws.

On the men’s side Roger Federer is the highest ranked player slated for action. The World No. 2 will face Argentina’s Diego Schwartzman in what should be a victory for the Swiss. Schwartzmann, still a developing player on tour, is currently ranked 63rd in the world and does not appear to be a threat to the Swiss Maestro advancing. Their match is the fourth one up on Stadium court so tennis fans should be looking for a late afternoon to early evening start time.

Rafael Nadal will also see action on Sunday. The Spaniard, seeded third in Indian Wells, will face Igor Sijsling of the Netherlands. Sijsling is a veteran on tour but he can still only be judged as a moderate threat to Nadal. Their match is scheduled to start not before 7pm on Sunday night.

Other top players scheduled for action include Milos Raonic and Stan Wawrinka. Raonic has a tricky match ahead of him in Simone Bolelli while Wawrinka will face Robin Haase. Those two matches are scheduled for Sunday afternoon on Stadium 2.

On the women’s side of things, Serena Williams is the top player scheduled for court time. The World No. 1 has what could be a tough opponent ahead of her in Zarina Diyas, a Kazahkstani player that may have a future in the Top Ten on tour. Their match is the third one up on Stadium court, preceding the Federer match.
