Venus Williams will continue her run in the desert on Monday afternoon against fellow American Christina McHale. Fresh off of her stunning second round upset of World No. 3 Petra Kvitova on Saturday night at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden, Williams will return to Stadium 1 as the center of attention.
When the two Americans meet, it’ll be the first match they’ve ever played across the net from one another, according to the BNP Paribas. While each is vying for the same goal at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden, that’s about all Williams and McHale have in common.
With match-ups, competition and big names like this, it’s little wonder the tennis garden and its event is grabbing national and international headlines.
A headline on Forbes.com exclaimed, “Indian Wells Growing A Singular Tennis Experience.”
Forbes.com writer Tim Newcomb said of the Indian Wells Tennis Garden, “Experiences like this, both for the players and the fans, give Indian Wells a unique position in the tennis calendar and create a singular experience that continues to draw roughly 450,000 fans for the two-week event, while earning rave reviews from both the ATP and WTA players who have both voted the tournament the best on tour every year for the last five years. Sponsors, of course, love it all, renewing and growing each year.”
