The 5th Slam, BNP Paribas Open By Jawad Bisharat


My favorite tournament of the year, the BNP Paribas open, aka the 5th slam. This tournament has all the makings of a Major. It hosts both the ATP and WTA attracting every top player in the world. A two week event with the highest attendance level other then the 4 majors.


The BNP Paribas Open, formally the Pacific Life Open, was the first and only tournament in the world to include shot spot on every court. With the backing of tech Mogul Larry Ellison this event has grown with the construction of a second stadium court set to open in March 2014.


If you plan to attend this year you will be rewarded with intimate practice courts used by all the players, including Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and more. Walk up and watch you favorite player up close and personal playing a practice set or just having a hit.

There is a large screen display of the stadium court matches. You can relax in the beer garden without missing any of the action. Oh, did I mention the weather...80 degrees and sunny suit your taste?


Indian Wells is just 20 miles east of Palm Springs, Ca. It has beautiful resorts and hotels within the city and the surrounding area. My favorite, the La Quinta Resort and Spa, is where many of the pros stay during the 2 weeks.


If you're a tennis fan then this event has to be on your go to list.
