Tennis returns to the United States for a 'Sunshine Double' as ATP & WTA stars will gather for the 2023 BNP Paribas Open Indian Wells from March 8th.
The event, which is played at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden and is often referred to as the 'fifth Grand Slam', is played from March 8th to 19th and the prize money and points on offer are certainly a big motivation for every player that competes in Indian Wells in 2023.
Last year, Taylor Fritz and Iga Swiatek won the event on their respective tours, and they will be defending their titles in 2023. The young Pole leads the WTA entry list, while her American colleague is one of the seeded players on the ATP entry list.
While the distribution of prize money is the same for both events, the points' distribution is different. The champion in Indian Wells will get $1,262,220 in both ATP & WTA tournament, while the runner-up will be awarded with $662,360 and 600 points in the men's tournament and 650 in the women's.
The tournament, which will be added by 96 players on both tours, rewards everyone already from the 1st round. Each player will receive at least 10 points and $18,660, and for the second-round appearance, athletes will receive $30,885 and 25 points on the ATP Tour, and 35 on the WTA Tour.
