general mc there is no keeping him out of indian wells but he has to skip miami to save the knees for the run on clay.
i agree about madrid: he has no business being there. it is better to practice on his own in mallorca.
i believe he has 1-2 slams left in him but its a long road back and he has to stay off the hard courts as much as possible. he would need to take an early strategic loss at indian wells and bypass miami to go jump on clay right away.
