Star Stacked 2018 BNP Paribas
The BNP Paribas draws elite tennis players from around the world to the desert every spring to compete in the largest tennis showdown outside of the four Grand Slam tournaments. This year’s event stretches from March 5 to 18 and features many of the top names in tennis, including Serena Williams, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic.
Williams (1999, 2001) returns to seek her third BNP Paribas Open title and both Federer (2004-2006, 2012, 2017) and Djokovic (2008, 2011, 2014-2016) are looking for their sixth titles. If Williams succeeds, she would become the first WTA player to win three singles titles at the BNP Paribas. Other past champions returning to compete are Maria Sharapova (2006, 2013), Elena Vesnina (2017), Caroline Wozniacki (2011) and Simona Halep (2015). Overall, there will be 96 singles and 32 doubles in the race for the title.
Last year’s event attracted over 370,000 tennis fans to the Indian Wells Tennis Garden so you can expect large crowds this year too. Tickets are on sale now and are available for individual days as well as multi-day packages.
