Indian Wells Postponed, Miami Open On In Latest ATP 2021 Calendar

The ATP updated its 2021 calendar and notable the Indian Wells tournament will not be played in March, if at all.

The tournament, which was the first to cancel due to the pandemic, hopes to reschedule later in the year.

“The tournament is proactively working with the ATP and WTA Tours as well as title sponsor BNP Paribas to confirm dates later in the year to hold the event. Details will be released in the near future as plans are finalized,” the tournament said in a statement.

The event could return possibly after the US Open, perhaps linking with the Laver Cup in some fashion if needed.

The Miami Open Masters will go on in Florida starting March 22. Though the event won’t have its usual Indian Wells lead-up, making it less attractive for players coming from abroad.

With the Australian Open pushed back a month, the New York and Rio events were confirmed casualties. But the void left by Indian Wells will allow events in Doha, Marseille, Dubai, Santiago and Acapulco to be held.

The ATP is hopeful to start the clay schedule after Miami.
