Indian Wells 2021

Indian Wells, or as some call it “the 5th grand slam” is a tennis tournament that many professionals take part in. Some players you may have heard of are Taylor Fritz, Daniil Medvedev, Victoria Azarenka, and many more. 

As many know, there are only four grand slam tournaments, and Indian Wells isn’t one of them. But Indian Wells is the most popular professional tournament outside of the four major grand slams. Indian Wells is played at the Indian Wells Gardens which is just outside of Palm Springs in California. Even Daniil Medvedev, who recently won the men’s US Open, participated in the Indian Wells tournament. 

This year, Paula Badosa defeated Victoria Azarenka in the the women’s final, and Cameron Norrie defeated Nikoloz Basilashvili to win the men’s final.
