Tennis: Andy Murray set to return at Indian Wells

Andy Murray will make his return to action at Indian Wells this weekend with the world number two ranking in sight. The British number one could overtake Roger Federer in the world rankings if he manages to reach the final and the Swiss goes out of the tournament before the semi finals. Murray is seeded third for the tournament and he has a bye in round one, which means he will play his opening match against either Evgeny Donskoy or Tatsuma Ito on Saturday or Sunday. If things go as planned he should face Juan Martin del Potro in the quarter finals and then world number one Novak Djokovic in the semi finals.

The BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells will see Murray, Federer, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal at the same tournament for the first time since Wimbledon last summer. Nadal was out for seven months with a bad knee injury before returning to action last month, and Indian Wells will be the first test of his knee on hard courts. The Spaniard will play either Ryan Harrison or Go Soeda in his first match and he could face Roger Federer in the quarter-finals. World number one Novak Djokovic has won 13 consecutive matches this season and will start the tournament against Fabio Fognini or Aljaz Bedene.

You can already bet on the outcome of this major tournament at Intertops, here are the odds for the top five favourites:

Novak Djokovic - 11/10
Andy Murray - 3/1
Roger Federer - 6/1
Rafael Nadal 9/1
Juan Martin del Potro - 12/1
