Currently classifying as a World Tour Masters 1000 tournament on the ATP men's tour and as Premier Mandatory on the WTA women's tour along with those held in Beijing, Madrid and Key Biscayne, the BNP Paribas Open was established in 1974, a year after the Women's Tennis Association (WTA) itself was founded by the legendary Billie Jean King. Played in the world class facilities of the Indian Wells Tennis Garden in Indian Wells, California, the tournament has gone through various name changes. In the men's case, it started out as the American Airlines Tennis Games and then moved through monikers such as Congoleum Classic and then Tennis Masters Series and Pacific Life Open during the 2000s, when it also combined with the women's version of the tournament that was initiated with Virginia Slims of Indian Wells in 1989. However, whether it's the men or the women who are on court, the BNP Paribas Open final packs a veritable punch.
Alongside the Sony Ericsson sponsored tournament held in Key Biscayne, the BNP Paribas Open is the only other tour event in which the draw based main play has duration in excess of eight days. Both the men's and women's singles draws entail 96 players that attempt to advance all the way to the BNP Paribas Open final. The players are spread over a grid constituting 128 players, with some 32 players that are seeded getting an automatic bye to round number 2. Played exclusively on hard courts, the tournament entails $ 3.6 million in prize money for the men and a whopping $ 4.5 million purse for the women.
The BNP Paribas Open final is the tippy tip of a scintillating legacy of being clinched by world renowned players.
