BNP Paribas Open is back: Tennis tournament returns to Indian Wells after 31 months

After 932 days, the BNP Paribas Open is back.

Normally in March, the two-week tennis tournament is taking place October 4-17 this year at the beautiful Indian Wells Tennis Garden after being cancelled in 2020 and postponed here in 2021.

After 31 months, here we are for the first-ever Fall edition of this prestigious tournament.

Unfortunately, many of the usual stars will not be here this time around. But there are still other top players participating and plenty of excitement surrounding this event, which is widely regarded as the unofficial 5th major.

The women's draw party was Monday, with the men's draw scheduled for Tuesday afternoon. Qualifying rounds are currently underway and play will begin ramp up towards the weekend.
