Peter Bodo is looking more the “dodo” or “bozo” with each passing day. Earlier in the week the writer for Tennis Magazine made public that he heard that Roger Federer was going to withdraw from Indian Wells.
Whoops! Federer has since not only not withdrawn Masters 1000 Tennis tournament, but the Swiss has already arrived in California and he’s even had a practice session on center court!!
Federer wrote on his Facebook page: “Back on the court in Indian Wells today. Felt great to hit as it was the first hit I had in 2 and a half weeks.”
First hit in two plus? He does have another week before he has to take the court.
And if you go to his Facebook page and click the picture to full size you can clearly make out the “tennis.com” signage logo off to the far left of the image. In light of the events that have transpired this week I find that somewhat odd if not coincidental that the photographer or Federer’s Facebook manager didn’t crop that out before posting!
