Indian Wells 2013 1st Round Draw

The BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells is the first of nine ATP World Tour Masters 1000 events it showcases the best men’s ATP as well as the ladies of the WTA tour.

Played over two weeks and a field of 96 players, this is one of the biggest and most important tournament outside the grand slam. The top 32 seed all recieve a bye in the first round leaving other 64 players needing 7 wins (same as a grand slam) to win the title here at Indian Wells.

This year we will see the big 4 together for the first as Rafael Nadal continues his return from injury. It will be Nadal’s first match on hard courts this year and his first masters 1000 match since Rome in May last year. Rafael though is ranked just 5th in the world and has been drawn in defending champion Roger Federer’s quarter, meaning we could see these two great rivals meet at the quarter final stage for the first time in their career.

Andy Murray is in the same half as Novak Djokovic meaning a potential replay of the last two grand slam finals.
