After 31 months, professional tennis is about to return to Indian Wells.
The BNP Paribas Open, usually held in March, was canceled in 2020 due to the global spread of the coronavirus. The 2021 event was then postponed for seven months to allow for a widespread vaccination rollout.
Now, more than two years since the last time professional tennis was played in the desert, the 47th annual BNP Paribas Open will take place October 4-17 at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden.

Here’s what you need to know about this year’s event:

2. Complete the vaccine information upload.
3. Be ready with your cell phone when you arrive at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden.
The BNP Paribas Open does not check physical vaccination cards at the entrance gate, although individuals will be available to assist cardholders in the entry process if required.

- With over 50 televisions, The Sports Bar is another place to watch matches, have a drink or eat during matches.

Djokovic, a five-time winner of Indian Wells, is the top-ranked player in the men’s draw, winning three of four Grand Slam singles titles this year. He is the clear favorite among the men, but Daniil Medvedev who prevented Djokovic from completing the Grand Slam by beating him at the US Open is also in the field.
On the woman’s side, it’s much more difficult. Ash Barty, the world’s top-ranked woman, has withdrawn from the event. She probably would have been the favourite. That means Sabalenka or Andreescu are likely to be the favourites. Both won here last time, with Sabalenka winning the doubles and Andreescu the singles, and they will have one of the best players and be familiar with playing in Stage 1 at night. That could make a difference.
