WTA 1000 Indian Wells 2023
After the Mexican tour with the two WTA250 tournaments in Guadalajara (all bets on WTA Guadalajara) and Monterrey, the women tennis players start the first American tour of the season with the WTA 1000 tournament in Indian Wells in the California desert.
Bet on the WTA season
The Indian Wells will be followed by another WTA 1000 tournament in Miami in March. These two American tournaments that will take place in March are also known as the "sunshine double".
Indian Wells is the second WTA 1000 tournament of the season after the Qatar Open. Bet on tennis with Bwin. It takes place on a hard outdoor surface on a Plexipave IW surface which is on the ITF speed scale rated intermediate-slow.
Bet on the WTA 1000 Indian Wells tournament
The Indian Wells tournament has had a different women's singles winner since Martina Navratilova's double in 1990 and 1991. No one on the women in the tournament has more than two titles. So it's a competition where the winner is fairly unpredictable. This lack of consistency in the prize list also takes into account the two Williams sisters who have long boycotted the tournament.
With an extra round and a hundred players, it is one of the longest tournaments of the WTA because it lasts about 12 days compared to other tournaments that only usually last a week.
With a huge prize fund and exceptional weather conditions, the best players of the circuit enter the draw with maximum expectations.
Recommended bet for the WTA Indian Wells 2023
For this 2022 edition, the event includes nine of the current top 10 players in the rankings including 2018 champion Naomi Osaka, returning to the event for the first time since 2019.
Swiatek, Kontaveit and Ostapenko are hot on the heels of Barty's dominance in Australia (all bets on the 2023 Australian Open), with No. 4 Swiatek, No. 5 Kontaveit and No. 12 Ostapenko winning the biggest prizes on the tour since. They will be worth watching as a recommended bet on tennis.
Swiatek led the way by beating three Top 10 players in succession — Sabalenka, Sakkari and Kontaveit — to win her first WTA 1000 on a hard court and her second overall. Before that, it was Ostapenko who ousted four major champions — Kenin, Kvitova, Swiatek and Halep — en route to the WTA 500 title in Dubai. Through it all, Kontaveit was the only player to play two finals in February, riding a nine-match winning streak to win St. Petersburg and advance to the final in Doha.
All three women made the round of 16 or better at Indian Wells last fall, with Ostapenko turning in her best performance to date in the California desert by reaching the semifinals.
