Indian Wells Honored for Fifth Consecutive Year

BT Media Group

INDIAN WELLS, Calif., November 9, 2018 – For a record-tying fifth consecutive year, the BNP Paribas Open – held each March at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden – has been voted the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 Tournament of the Year, as determined by player vote.

The BNP Paribas Open, the largest WTA and ATP World Tour combined two-week event in the world, has swept the top tournament honors on both the men’s and women’s Tours each year since 2014. The Masters 1000 designation is the highest category on the ATP World Tour, outside of the Tour Finals, and includes the tournaments in Miami, Monte Carlo, Madrid, Rome, Cincinnati, Canada, Shanghai, and Paris, in addition to Indian Wells.

“We are honored and humbled that for the fifth straight year, our event has been recognized by the players as “Tournament of the Year,” Tournament Director Tommy Haas said. “Our entire staff works incredibly hard to deliver a world-class experience, and our goal will be to make the 2019 event even better this March.”

Each year, the BNP Paribas Open strives to ensure that continuous improvements to the Indian Wells Tennis Garden make the event a premier destination for fans, players, media and sponsors. A full-scale renovation to Stadium 1 in 2017 added more than 21 new restaurants and concessions to the second-largest tennis stadium in the world, while players enjoy top-notch facilities, amenities and practice courts. Continuously at the forefront of innovation in the tennis world and the sporting industry as a whole, the BNP Paribas Open remains the only tournament in the world to have Hawk-Eye on all match courts for both main draw and qualifying matches.

The BNP Paribas Open is known throughout the tennis community as “Tennis Paradise” – a reflection of the stunning natural beauty and backdrop of the desert landscape, highlighted by the world-class tennis players that participate in the renowned global event.
