Mardy Fish announces on Twitter that he plans on playing the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells, which begins next week. He is also scheduled to play the LA Challenge exhibition next Monday night.

The 30-year-old has not played since he withdrew from his fourth-round match against Roger Federer at last year’s U.S. Open due to heart trouble. Fish reached the Indian Wells singles final in 2008; he partnered Andy Roddick to win the doubles title in 2009.
