Long before we all lost our onions in the Covid-19 pandemic, Bianca Andreescu of Canada won the BNP Paribas Open, back in 2019.
In 2022, Iga Swiatek of Poland won the BNP Paribas Open.
Tonight at 6, they collide on the court at Stadium 1 at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden. Swiatek is the top seeded woman.
Same time at Stadium 2, a couple of Brits tangle, Andy Murray takes on Jack Draper.
Right after the Iga and Bianca battle it out at Stadium 1, the top seeded man, Carlos Alcaraz, will play under the lights tonight.
At 11 this morning, Canadian star Leylah Fernandez is in action, so is American Tommy Paul.
Early afternoon matches feature Stan Wawrinka, Emma Raducanu, Paula Badosa, Taylor Fritz, Ons Jabeur.
