Indian Wells Live
This year's event will be the 28th edition of this Premier Mandatory outdoor hard court tournament. The total prize money for the ladies will stand at a rather impressive $6.157.160, most of which will go to the eventual winner.
The reigning champion is the Romanian Simona Halep who has a relatively successful season, although she is still waiting for that Grand Slam breakthrough. Despite not being able to win her maiden Slam title so far, she is extremely consistent in the lesser tournaments, earning herself a stable top 3 ranking in the last couple of years. Despite being the defending champion, she will definitely not be among the top 2 favorites. For starters, she lost that above mentioned top 3 ranking after a disastrous Australian Open performance (she lost in the first round). Her other two problems are called Serena Williams and Angelique Kerber, the fresh Australian Open winner.
Each of these two ladies will have a much better chance of going all the way when the tournament starts on Monday, and a rematch of the OZ Open final is not only the most realistic scenario but would likely become another classic.
