The second week of the BNP Paribas Open is in full swing, and the energy around the Indian Wells Tennis Garden is palpable.
The Coachella Valley has transformed into the epicenter of the tennis universe as fans from around the world have been treated to thrilling on-court action and exquisite entertainment all tournament long. Here are some Tuesday highlights for fans to look forward with another exciting day on tap in Tennis Paradise:
The first Top 15 matchup of the 2022 BNP Paribas Open has arrived.
This juicy Round of 16 showdown will feature two former Grand Slam champions as No. 3 seed Iga Swiatek and No. 15 Angelique Kerber battle it out on Tennis Paradise’s biggest stage during the Stadium 1 afternoon session. Kerber has accomplished a ton in her storied WTA career, but is still looking to add a BNP Paribas Open title to her stacked trophy cabinet. The German veteran will have her hands full Tuesday as she faces one of the brightest female stars in the sport in Swiatek. The 20-year-old Polish star is riding a 7-match winning streak into this Round of 16 blockbluster.
The American men are off to a flying start at the 2022 BNP Paribas Open, and no one will be feeling more confident than New Jersey native Tommy Paul as he tries to pull another shock upset to continue his dream run at the tournament. After knocking off No. 3 seed Alexander Zverev in a three-set thriller on Sunday night, Paul will carry his momentum into a third round clash with Australia’s Alex de Minaur. This afternoon match in Stadium 3 is one that fans will not want to miss.
The BNP Paribas Open’s exciting lineup of sponsor days rolls along with Pacaso, one of the tournament’s new sponsors for 2022, taking over the Indian Wells Tennis Garden on Tuesday. Keep your eyes out for a giveaway of visors, fans, and tennis balls at the north gate and visit the Pacaso activation booth to learn more about the real-estate startup – which offers a modern, tech-enabled path to second-home ownership. Who doesn’t love free stuff?
The Village Stage will play host to a special ceremony on Tuesday as the tournament welcomes the Universal Tennis Hurd Awards Presentation to the grounds of the Indian Wells Tennis Garden. Each year, Universal Tennis awards $100,000 grants to a young American male and female player to help aid with their transition from college to professional tennis. Head over to the heart of Tennis Paradise at 2:00pm to honor and celebrate this year’s recipients.
No day in Tennis Paradise is complete without an electric musical performance at the Village Stage. Join us for the debut of DJ Siah at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden, as the local native brings his musical talents to entertain fans at the tournament in between the afternoon and evening sessions. Josiah has performed as a musician and DJ for the last 8 years, mixing top hits with Nu-Disco, house, and indie.
