After 31 months, professional tennis will finally return to Indian Wells. It was initially planned for March 8-21, 2021 but has now been rescheduled for October at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden. Tickets are expected to go on sale June 21, 2021 but specific dates for the tournament are yet to be determined.
Tournament director Tommy Haas, a German retired tennis player said “We are ecstatic to have the opportunity to hold the BNP Paribas Open in October and bring professional tennis back to the desert”.
The BNP Paribas Open is the fifth largest professional tennis tournament in the world and the second-largest in the U.S. Back in 2019, the BNP Paribas Open set an attendance record with 475,372 fans for the two-week event.
The two greatest players of their era, Roger Federer and Serena Williams will both be 40 by the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells. Both have won 43 combined Grand Slam single titles. If Djokovic and eight-ranked Federed were to play the BNP Paribas Open, they would both be seeking to add to their shared record of five singles titles as Indian Wells.
The official entry list of players for the tournament won’t be released until five weeks prior to the event. As of now, having the BNP Paribas Open return to Indian Wells in 2021 is enough to keep the fans, sponsors and players excited.
Ferretti Real Estate Group is excited to have back the BNP Paribas Open since this is one of biggest tournaments in the world which attracts lots of tourism to the Coachella Valley during the tournament week. The tournament is very beneficial for the local hospitality businesses and real estate industry.
