    The Indian Wells and Miami Masters will be highly anticipated by tennis fans, particularly those in the US.

    The Indian Wells Masters will take place between March 7-20. A number of top players will compete in the tournament, including Rafael Nadal, Daniil Medvedev, Alexander Zverev and Stefanos Tsitsipas. Although Novak Djokovic features on the entry list, he will probably miss out due to the vaccination policy in the US.

    In the women’s singles event, every player in the top 10 of the WTA rankings is on the entry list. World No. 1 Ashleigh Barty will compete in her first tournament since winning the Australian Open in January. Naomi Osaka will also make her return.

    The Eisenhower Cup, a Tie Break Tens event, will take place on March 8. The likes of Osaka, Simona Halep, Aryna Sabalenka, Paula Badosa and Maria Sakkari will compete in the exhibition tournament.

    The Miami Masters will start on March 21. All the top-10 players on the ATP and WTA tours are on the entry list, including Djokovic.

    Wildcards have been awarded to Andy Murray, Nick Kyrgios and Osaka.

    Murray has made a good start to the season, returning to the top 100 of the ATP rankings. Osaka and Kyrgios will taste their first bit of action since the Australian Open.
