BNP Paribas Open, Indian Wells
The women's tournament became an official WTA tournament in 1989, 28 years ago, in partnership with IMG. Before 1996, the women's event was held immediately prior, rather than concurrently, to the men's event. That situation changed when the ATP and the WTA approved of combining the events. Now the tournament is one of the most prominent events in the tennis calendar for both the men and the women’s tours.
Venue: Indian Wells Tennis Garden
