How to List to Indian Wells Masters Live on Radio
You can also listen to the Indian Wells Masters live or listen to its highlights using the various options mentioned here.
What Happened at the 2020 Indian Wells Open?
As mentioned earlier, the 2020 edition of the Indian Wells Open was cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Dominic Thiem and Bianca Andreescu won the 2019 men’s and women’s singles titles respectively last time.
And both these wins were shocking in nature given Thiem shrugged off the loss of the first set in the final against Roger Federer to win the title while Andreescu was a wild-card entrant who ran through her opponents to go on to edge out Angelique Kerber in the title-decider.
Thiem had made it to the final with wins over Jordan Thompson, Gilles Simon and Ivo Karlovic to make it to the quarterfinals where he got a walkover from Gael Monfils. He was stretched in a stiff three-setter by Milos Raonic at the semi-final stage before defeating Federer in the final.
Andreescu’s run was stunning. She overcame the loss of the first set to Irina-Camelia Begu in her opener to win that match and then went on the kind of a roll that only champions would do. Andreescu dropped just four games against Dominika Cibulkova, three games against Stefanie Voegele and was then a 7-5, 6-2 winner over Wang Qiang to enter the last eight.
Expecting her first real toughie at that stage in the form of the 20th seeded Garbine Muguruza, Andreescu rammed her opponent 6-0, 6-1 before winning against Elina Svitolina in a three-setter to make it to the final.
In 2018, Juan Martin del Potro won the men’s singles title, beating the defending champion Roger Federer in the final.
Federer made it to the final having dropped just set in the semi-finals against Borna Coric before he faced Juan Martin del Potro. Del Potro, the sixth seed, did not encounter too much trouble himself to make it to the final, with only Germany Philipp Kohlschreiber stretching him to three sets.
The 2018 final was a hard-fought affair with del Potro winning the first set but Federer roaring back to win the second in a tie-breaker. The final set went neck in neck before the Argentine grabbed by the scruff of its neck in the tie-breaker, winning it 7-2.
None of Marin Cilic, Grigor Dimitrov, Alexander Zverev or Dominic Thiem made it to the quarter-finals.
Naomi Osaka gave an account of what was to follow in the year with a title win in the women’s section of the draw. Having started off as an unseeded player in the tournament, Osaka became the youngest ever winner of the Indian Wells Open – dropping just one set en route.
