Who is playing Indian Wells in 2017?

An all-Swiss final will determine the 2017 Indian Wells Masters champion with Roger Federer and Stan Wawrinka facing off for the 23rd time on Sunday. Federer has dominated their rivalry through the years, leading the head-to-head 19-3, including winning their most recent meeting in the 2017 Australian Open semi-finals in five thrilling sets. Wawrinka has never defeated Federer on a hardcourt, with all three of his wins coming on clay. Another battle of single-handed backhands in the desert, Federer is gunning for a 25th Masters and 90th career title overall, while Wawrinka is looking to add to the one Masters 1000 trophy he picked up in 2014 at Monte-Carlo.

On Sunday, the first all-Russian final at Indian Wells since Maria Sharapova beat Elena Dementieva in 2006 will take place for the women's BNP Paribas Open title. Svetlana Kuznetsova returns to the Indian Wells final for the first time since making back-to-back runner-up finishes in 2007 and 2008 - the two-time Grand Slam champion has been splendidly resurgent over the past 12 months with a rediscovered passion for tennis, and she edged the in-form world no. 3 Karolina Pliskova in the semifinals. But Elena Vesnina, just a year younger than her compatriot, is also playing some of the best tennis of her life after last year's Wimbledon semifinal finish and she has all her Slam-winning doubles experience to draw on as well. Which Russian woman will bring home the title at the first Premier Mandatory event of the season?

About the BNP Paribas Open

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.

Previous Indian Wells champions

The very first Indian Wells men’s final featured John Newcombe beating Arthur Ashe in 1974 and many of the game’s greatest have triumphed at Indian Wells, including Jimmy Connors, Boris Becker, Stefan Edberg, Michael Chang, Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi. In recent years as Indian Wells became the first of the ATP World Tour’s nine Masters 1000 Series events, the title has become the property of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, who have won the BNP Paribas Open every year between 2004 and 2016 with the exception of 2011, when Ivan Ljubicic captured the title.

Djokovic (2008, 2011, 2014-16) holds the record for most men’s singles titles at the Indian Wells Masters.

On the women’s side, the BNP Paribas Open has suffered from the absence of Venus and Serena Williams since 2001, when Venus’s withdrawal from the semifinal due to injury triggered booing and racist abuse from the crowds during the final. The Williams sisters boycotted the event for the next 14 years, although Serena decided to return in 2015 and was greeted warmly by the crowds, reaching the semifinals. She went one better in 2016, losing to Azarenka in the final. Will she wear the crown in 2017? Elder sister Venus announced that she would return in 2016, explaining her decision in a moving letter, and the world no. 12 was welcomed back with a huge standing ovation when she took the court on Stadium 1 although she lost her opening match to Japan's Kurumi Nara. 

Martina Navratilova, Steffi Graf, Martina Hingis, Lindsay Davenport and Kim Clijsters are among the luminaries of the women’s game who have won at Indian Wells. Ten different active women’s players have also claimed the title at the BNP Paribas Open, now rated a Premier Mandatory: Serena Williams (1999, 2001); Daniela Hantuchova (2002, 2007); Maria Sharapova (2006, 2013); Ana Ivanovic (2008); Vera Zvonareva (2009); Jelena Jankovic (2010); Caroline Wozniacki (2011); Victoria Azarenka (2012, 2016); Flavia Pennetta (2014) and finally Simona Halep.

The 2016 edition certainly did not disappoint, with Novak Djokovic producing one of his best performances of a below-par season to dismantle Milos Raonic in the final for the loss of just two games, capturing a record fifth Indian Wells title in the process, while Victoria Azarenka continued her strong start to the year with a 6-4 6-4 victory over Serena Williams.

For Djokovic, it was a third straight title of an event he has absolutely dominated in recent years, while Azarenka lifted her second Indian Wells crown, backing up her 2012 success. Both champions could not quite sustain the momentum through the year, as Djokovic suffered an alarming dip in form in the second half of 2016, and Azarenka was first held back by injuries, before pregnancy forced an early end to her year.
