The 7th year of the tour kicked off in spectacular Indian Wells, CA and signaled the start to another four exciting events around the country. Players met in the VIP center court suite on Friday evening for the traditional meet and greet cocktail party, as well as to view the evening matches of the BNP Paribas Open.
On Saturday morning, pro/am teams gathered at the stadium for the first two rounds of the tournament, then headed up to the suite for lunch and a fantastic afternoon watching the two men’s semi-final matches of the BNP Paribas Open. Yet again the tournament failed to disappoint the spectators, providing another fantastic afternoon of semi final matches. Roger Federer, Andy Murray, Novak Djokovic and Milos Raonic entertained and thrilled the sold out stadium with amazing tennis in unbelievably hot desert conditions.
On Saturday evening, Jerry Weintraub graciously hosted and entertained everyone at his fabulous home in Big Horn. Guests were treated to a sit down dinner on the terrace, with sweeping and moonlit views of the golf course and skyline.
Perfect weather conditions greeted everyone on Sunday morning for the final two rounds of the pro/am. After completing the round robin matches, the first final featured Steve Powers and long time PCF tour pro partner, Scott Davis, competing against veteran Indian Wells amateur Kern Schumacher and pro, Andrei Pavel. Steve Powers and Scott Davis went on to defeat Kern and Andrei giving Steve his second tour title.
The other final featured Fernando Sartorius and Teymuraz Gabashvili playing against Tim Maguire and pro Wayne Ferreira. Fernando and Teymuraz had advanced after defeating Danny Weingeist and David Marrero in a match decided by a nail biting tie break! In another great final, Sartorius and Gabashvili defeated Tim and Wayne to win the title.
Congratulations to the winners and finalists for providing exceptionally entertaining tennis for all of the spectators.
