ATP Indian Wells players 2019

The very best men’s tennis has to offer will descend upon the Californian desert as the first ATP Masters 1000 tournament of the season gets underway in Indian Wells, live between March 7-17.

The climactic stages of the tournament offer two exceptional semifinals after a week and a half of dramatic shocks. Acapulco champion Nick Kyrgios, third seed Alexander Zverev and - most surprisingly of all - world no. 1 Novak Djokovic all met with early exits in the Californian desert, while new potential stars like 19-year-old lucky loser Miomir Kecmanovic and Poland's big-serving young gun Hubert Hurkacz made their mark on the tennis landscape.

Just four contenders for the title remain. In the top half of the draw, seventh seed Dominic Thiem faces off with former runner-up Milos Raonic (Saturday 16 March, 11am local/6pm GMT): Will the French Open finalist make his first hard-court Masters 1000 Series final? Or will the big-serving Canadian, runner-up at Indian Wells in 2016, reach the title match once more?

In the bottom half of the draw, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal will face off for the 39th time in the latest installment of tennis's most legendary rivalry (Saturday 16 March, 1pm local/8pm GMT). Federer has won the last five matches he has played against Nadal, but the Spaniard still holds the balance of power in the rivalry, leading 23-15.

About Indian Wells

One of the biggest events in tennis, the BNP Paribas Open – also known as the Indian Wells Masters – is one of only two tournaments outside the four Grand Slams to last longer than a week, with the tournament unfolding over two weeks at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden in the Californian desert. The property of billionaire Larry Ellison, CEO and co-founder of Oracle, the tournament and the venue features the second-largest tennis stadium in the world. 

Indian Wells has roots stretching back to 1976 when the tournament began a five-year run at the Mission Hills Country Club in the Coachella Valley before moving to the La Quinta Hotel under the direction of Charlie Pasarell. The tournament went through a large number of different names and title sponsors before its current facilities at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden were developed and it became known in 2009 as the BNP Paribas Open. The women’s tournament was held a week prior to the men’s until 1996, when the two events were combined to create the BNP Paribas Open.

Founded by ex-tennis pros Charlie Pasarell and Raymond Moore, the tournament now called the BNP Paribas Open is a Masters 1000 Series event for the men and a Premier Mandatory event for the women, meaning that it is one of a small number of events at which the best players on both tours are required to appear. Beyond that, Indian Wells is an incredibly popular event for both players and fans. Played at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden, which features 29 courts including a 16,100-seat main stadium which is the second-largest tennis stadium in the world and an 8,000-set Stadium 2 which was added after redevelopment began in 2013, the BNP Paribas Open is one of just two events outside the four majors at which main-draw play extends beyond a week. The second is the Miami Open, which directly follows Indian Wells on the calendar. Winning both events in the same year is one of the most difficult feats in tennis and is known as the 'Sunshine Double'. Only seven men - most recently Roger Federer in 2017 - and three women, most recently Victoria Azarenka in 2016, have completed the 'Sunshine Double'.

Indian Wells is the first Masters 1000 Series or Premier Mandatory event on the tennis calendar and punctuates the long stretch between the Australian Open in January and the French Open in late May, bringing the first quarter of the year, dominated as it is by hard courts, to an exciting climax before the tours move on to clay courts. Many if not most of the all-time greats of the game have captured the title at Indian Wells, starting with John Newcombe beating Arthur Ashe in the final of the inaugural tournament in 1974; Jimmy Connors (1976, 1981, 1984), Boris Becker (1987-8), Stefan Edberg (1980), Jim Courier (1991, 1993), Michael Chang (1992, 1996-7), Pete Sampras (1994-5), Andre Agassi (2001) and Lleyton Hewitt (2002-3) have all proved popular champions in the desert on the men's side, while the shorter history of the women's event has seen Martina Navratilova (1990-1), Monica Seles (1992), Steffi Graf (1994, 1996), Martina Hingis (1998), Kim Clijsters (2003, 2005) and Justine Henin (2004) taking the crown. 

In recent years, the 'Big Four' have established dominance over the men's event at the BNP Paribas Open. Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic between them share the all-time record for most Indian Wells titles, with each winning five times; Federer between 2004 and 2017, when he won his first title in five years and went on to complete a third Sunshine Double, and Djokovic between 2008 and 2016, winning four Sunshine Doubles over that period. Juan Martin del Potro broke the stranglehold of the Big Four in 2018 when he saved match points to beat Federer in a thrilling three-set final, 6-4 6-7(8) 7-6(2).
