The world of professional tennis has come a long way since the beginning of its open era in the late sixties….only forty years ago. And, almost at the same time, a professional men’s tournament was emerging in the Southern California desert. Located in the second largest market in the country, it has evolved into the largest combined ATP World Tour and WTA in the world next to the four Grand Slams. The BNP Paribas Open is a two-week combined ATP World Tour Masters 1000 and WTA Premier event featuring the top men and women professional players competing in a 96 singles draw and 32 doubles draw. The event is hosted at the magnificent Indian Wells Tennis Garden, located in the beautiful Southern California desert. Of the 23 sessions played, attendance is taken from only 20 sessions and in 2013 the event attracted over 370,000 tennis fans. The event offers equal prize money totaling $9 million.
Six new champions were crowned at the 2019 BNP Paribas Open:
