Novak Djokovic excited for Indian Wells return after 3-year hiatus

Posted : 28 February 2024

World No. 1 Novak Djokovic expressed his enthusiasm about returning to Indian Wells for the BNP Paribas Open after being unable to participate since 2019 due to Covid-19-related travel restrictions.


Djokovic, aiming for an unprecedented sixth title at the prestigious Masters 1000 event, considers Indian Wells one of the best tournaments globally and looks forward to performing in front of passionate tennis fans. Reflecting on his past victories at Indian Wells, including his first title in 2008, Djokovic highlighted the significance of the tournament in his career.


Recalling his initial triumph against Mardy Fish and subsequent victories against tennis legends like Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal in epic finals, Djokovic emphasized his excitement about returning to Indian Wells and competing against top players.


The cancellation of the 2020 BNP Paribas Open and subsequent travel restrictions kept Djokovic away from the tournament, but he is eager to make a comeback this year. Djokovic's presence in Los Angeles, where he watched a soccer match featuring Lionel Messi, signals his readiness for the upcoming tennis event.


The defending champions of the BNP Paribas Open, Carlos Alcaraz and Elena Rybakina, are gearing up for the tournament scheduled from March 3-17, and Djokovic's return adds anticipation to the event. Three-time Indian Wells champion Rafael Nadal, who missed the Australian Open last month due to a muscle tear, is also set to compete, further enhancing the star-studded lineup.
