Giveaways Galore: Two exciting giveaways will greet those in Tennis Paradise on Thursday! For day session attendees, FILA is helping combat the desert heat by providing personal fans to make sure patrons stay cool. During the night session, Tennis Channel is giving away custom bags so you can show off your time in Tennis Paradise wherever you go.


Rat Pack Night: Thursday evening in Tennis Paradise is Rat Pack Night! In a throwback tribute to the famed 1960’s Las Vegas casino scene, the Indian Wells Tennis Garden will come alive with Rat Pack themed music, trivia, interactive games, cocktail cameras and more! Channel your inner Frank Sinatra or Sammy Davis Jr. as you take in world-class tennis under the lights!


Venus Williams vs Angelique Kerber: For the first match of the evening session on Stadium 1, seven-time Grand Slam champion Venus Williams will look to continue her magical run in the desert against Angelique Kerber. The German is a three-time Grand Slam titlist in her own right; and will look to derail what has been a vintage performance from the 38-year-old Williams.


Gael Monfils vs Dominic Thiem: The nightcap on Stadium 1 is a scintillating quarterfinal match between the always tricky Frenchman Gael Monfils and world No. 8 Dominic Thiem. With both men playing at an elite level (Monfils captured the ATP Rotterdam title in February while Thiem has yet to drop a set in the desert), Thursday’s matchup is sure to provide fireworks for all in attendance.
