Schedules:
Who's got the funk...
1.
Roger FEDERER
If you're waiting for the update on how Rog's year back from injury is going, he's 13-1 with Australian Open and Indian Wells titles. At age 35.
2.
Elena VESNINA
30-year-old wins all-Russian all-change-the-channel Indian Wells title, her first Premier-level win.
3.
Indian Wells
Keeps getting bigger and more grandiose, but make it a special-level Masters event because it's rich? Meh.
4.
Caroline WOZNIACKI
Having fun ripping Maria Sharapova on her doping return before the Russian has even set foot on a court.
5.
Miami Open
Has the spotlight for the next two weeks, albeit without Serena, Andy, Novak, growing list of pull-outs.
...Who's in the trunk
5.
Maria SHARAPOVA
Few (besides tournament directors looking to boost ticket sales) heralding the return of the super-soldier serum doper.
4.
French Open, Wimbledon
While the Slams try to show they're tough on dopers, neither have said they will deny Sharapova a wild card. Look for Roland Garros to give in first and Wimbledon to follow.
3.
Angie KERBER
Remember the German who finished No. 1 last year? She's currently No. 13 in 2017-only points.
2.
Serena WILLIAMS
Pulls from Indian Wells and Miami citing knee injury. You gotta think she doesn't really care, either, until the French rolls around.
1.
Andy MURRAY, Novak DJOKOVIC
Both pull from Miami citing elbow issues. Here comes Roger in the rankings...

Puerto Rico's Monica Puig, the gold medal winner at the last Olympics, was bundled out in the first round by Romania's Sorana Cirstea 6-2, 6-4.
