WTA Indian Wells Tournament Schedule

The 2020 BNP Paribas Open, more often known as Indian Wells after the Californian desert town in which it is held, has been cancelled due to public health concerns.

Tournament organizers and local government took the decision to cancel the BNP Paribas Open, one of four WTA Tour Premier Mandatory events played throughout the season, after a confirmed case of coronavirus in the Coachella Valley led Riverside County to declare a public health emergency.

The Indian Wells Tennis Garden had already hosted a combined ATP Tour Challenger and WTA 125k event the previous week, which was won by Steve Johnson and Irina-Camelia Begu respectively. Many players expecting to compete at the BNP Paribas Open, which features 96-player draws for both men and women, had already arrived.

Tournament director Tommy Haas said:

‘We are very disappointed that the tournament will not take place, but the health and safety of the local community, fans, players, volunteers, sponsors, employees, vendors, and everyone involved with the event is of paramount importance. We are prepared to hold the tournament on another date and will explore options.’

It’s difficult to see where tennis authorities might be able to find room in the calendar to play Indian Wells on another date.

Spectators who had already bought tickets will be offered a refund or tickets for the 2021 tournament, which is due to take place from 8-21 March 2021.

About the BNP Paribas Open

One of the biggest events in tennis, the BNP Paribas Open 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’.

Players who have completed the ‘Sunshine Double’


Player No. of ‘Sunshine Doubles’ Years
Jim Courier 1 1991
Michael Chang 1 1992
Pete Sampras 1 1994
Steffi Graf 2 1994, 1996
Marcelo Rios 1 1998
Andre Agassi 1 2001
Roger Federer 3 2005-2006, 2017
Kim Clijsters 1 2005
Novak Djokovic 4 2011, 2014-16
Victoria Azarenka 1 2016


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.

On the women’s side, no one has ever won more than two BNP Paribas Open titles. Serena Williams took the crown in 1999 and 2001 and would undoubtedly have won more times were it not for a self-imposed boycott of the tournament due to being bombarded with booing and racial slurs on her way to her second title, which caused her to stay away from Indian Wells until she decided to return in 2015 (sister Venus followed suit in 2016). In Williams’s absence, Maria Sharapova (2006, 2013), Daniela Hantuchova (2002, 2007), Caroline Wozniacki (2011), Victoria Azarenka (2012, 2016) and Simona Halep (2015) have all been notable champions in the desert. Elena Vesnina stormed to a shock title win in 2017, while Naomi Osaka claimed her maiden WTA title in the 2018 showpiece, overcoming fellow young gun Daria Kasatkina in straight sets.

Osaka would go on to win the US Open in 2018 and in 2019, Bianca Andreescu followed the same blueprint. Despite being unseeded and ranked world no. 60, the Canadian teenager defeated a slew of seeds before ousting Angelique Kerber in the final. She too would go on to win the US Open the same year.

The 2020 BNP Paribas Open was cancelled due to public health concerns surrounding the global coronavirus outbreak.
