FEDERER, NADAL KICK OFF 2019 INDIAN WELLS CAMPAIGNS ON SUNDAY
Five-time BNP Paribas Open champion Roger Federer plays his first match of the 2019 edition on Sunday when he faces Peter Gojowczyk of Germany on Stadium 1. No. 4-seeded Federer completed his quest for his 100th career ATP Tour singles title one week ago when he defeated Stefanos Tsitsipas in the Dubai final, and he enters the second round of Indian Wells with an 8-1 win-loss record this season.
Federer has reached the final in his last four Indian Wells appearances, winning the title in 2017, and finishing runner-up to Novak Djokovic in 2014 and 2015 and to Juan Martin del Potro last year. Federer beat Gojowczyk in their only meeting at ATP Masters 1000 Cincinnati last year, which was shortly after the German hit his career-high ranking of No. 39.
Three-time Indian Wells champion Rafael Nadal will hit Stadium 1 in the evening session, when he takes on American wild card Jared Donaldson. Nadal is playing his third event of the year, following a run to the Australian Open final, which he lost to Djokovic, and a second-round loss to eventual champion Nick Kyrgios at Acapulco last week.

As for Donaldson, he returned to the tour at Delray Beach in February following six months away due to a right knee injury, and he picked up his first Tour-level victory since July of last year by defeating Tatsuma Ito in the first round on Friday.
Three-time Grand Slam champion and 2017 Indian Wells finalist Stan Wawrinka will face a familiar foe in the second round: Wawrinka and No. 29 seed Marton Fucsovics met three times last year, with Fucsovics winning their first meeting before Wawrinka claimed two victories in back-to-back weeks later in the season.
Another former Indian Wells finalist, 2012 runner-up John Isner, will meet 19-year-old Australian qualifier Alexei Popyrin on Sunday. After starting 2019 with an 0-2 record, top-ranked American Isner has made the semi-finals of his last three events in a three-week span.

Five-time champion Roger Federer’s 62 match victories at Indian Wells is his highest match-win total at any of the ATP Masters 1000 events.
