It’s time to get ready for the fifth Grand Slam. At least that’s what many like to call the Indian Wells masters tournament, BNP Paribas Open.
The 45th edition of the so-called fifth grand slam starts next week.It runs from the 10th to the 20th of March. The draw will be held on March 8th. It will feature players like world nr 1, Daniil Medvedev and “refuse-to-lose-in-2022” Rafael Nadal. Nick Kyrgios and Andy Murray have both received wild cards.
Will you be watching the 5th Slam?
After a weekend of Davis Cup, it’s nice that the tour returns to its “regular programming”. Indian Wells is described as tennis paradise by many and I personally really hope to visit it one day. If you have been to the BNP Paribas Open, please let me know in the comments about your experience.
I hope to be able to visit there in 2023 to capture the experience and film some action from the practice courts.
