Indian Wells

ATP Masters 1000 and WTA Premier Mandatory

Let’s have a look first at the women’s draw as WTA main draw matches start first.

Johanna Konta is the only British player direct into the main draw, as Heather Watson and Katie Boulter both hoped to make their way through qualifying. Heather Watson is also playing doubles with Laura Arruabarrena.

The top seed is Simona Halep and Naomi Osaka will return to defend her title.

Onto the ATP draw, Kyle Edmund will hope to build on his success after winning the Challenger here last week and is seeded 22. Cameron Norrie goes into Indian Wells after reaching semi-finals in Acapulco. Dan Evans is in the qualifying draw.

Jamie Murray  and Bruno Soares are second seeds in the doubles draw; Joe Salisbury and Rajeev Ram come here fresh from a title in Dubai, and Dom Inglot is here also with Franko Sugor.

Last year’s winner Juan Martin del Potro is out with injury, and Novak Djokovic is the top seed.
