For the ninth consecutive year, Indian Wells has been voted ATP Masters 1000 Tournament of the Year. Situated among the natural beauty of the desert landscape, the Indian Wells Tennis Garden offers state-of-the-art facilities for players, countless training courts that put stars within walking distance of fans, and unparalleled dining options.

“We are proud to see ATP players once again vote Indian Wells as their favorite Masters 1000 event of the year,” said Tommy Haas, director of the BNP Paribas Open. “This award reflects the efforts of all our staff, volunteers, fans and so many others who make the BNP Paribas Open possible each season, contributing to the ongoing success of a unique event.”
