Indian Wells 2021 will officially be played in October. The BNP Paribas Open will take place between 4 and 17 October, completely revolutionizing the October schedule. The announcement came directly from the director of the tournament Tommy Haas: the women's draw will be 96 players with a qualifying draw accessible to 32 players, while the men's will be for 56 players.
The total prize pool will be $ 15.3 million, the highest for a non-Grand Slam tournament. The guidelines for the participation of tennis players, on the other hand, will be established by the protocols in force for ATP and WTA at the time of the tournament.
Haas said: "The BNP Paribas Open in October will be an opportunity not to be missed. I know that all the fans have been waiting for a long time for the return of the tournament and we can't wait to give them an unforgettable event that celebrates the unique experience in Tennis Paradise"
The WTA has already confirmed that all Chinese and Japanese tournaments will be canceled with the exception of the WTA Finals in Shenzhen. ATP has instead confirmed that week from 10 to 17 October will be reserved for the Indian Wells.
The goal is to keep the Shanghai Masters 1000 on the schedule, which would be held in the course of the immediately preceding week (4-10 October). Given the temporal proximity and the great geographical distance, it is not certain that these confirmations will arrive and even the Chinese Masters 1000 could will be skipped.
