The tennis world awaits the star-studded Indian Wells tournament that is all set to kick off. Set in the raw locales of the southern California desert, Indian Wells Tennis tournament will be held from 5 to 18 March.
International tennis players have headed for the venue, and so have the two arch rivals, Rafale Nadal and Roger Federer, and this might be a chance to witness the two living legends of Tennis lock horns.
The Indian Wells Tournament venues open up to the public who enjoy seeing their favorite players practice and shape up for the desert matches. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for Tennis fans – many fans flock here to have fun in the midst of palm trees and soaring mountains whilst enjoying their daily quota of Tennis. Millions of people attend the event each year.
This year’s wild card entries include David Nalbandian of Argentina and veteran Americans Sam Querrey, Robby Ginepri and Jill Craybas. All of them are former top players. Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, Viktor Troicki, Marc Lopez, Wilfried Tsonga, Mardy Fish and Andy Roddick will be the added attractions of the tournament.
The tournament is special in every way as the opening two days are filled up with qualifying rounds and free admission. The two week long tournament is often given a Grand Slam honor because of the top tennis players participating in it.
The impressive main stadium speaks highly of the tournament’s level in the international circuit, whilst the prize money for men and women stands at a whopping $9 million – no wonder the top players are tempted! The current favourite is Rafael Nadal, but that could all change on the in-play tennis betting, especially if he meets Federer in the final.
