Indian Wells, London-Queen's Club, Bastad Named 2023 ATP Tournaments Of The Year
The BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, the cinch Championships at the Queen’s Club in London and the Nordea Open in Bastad continue to set the standard on the ATP Tour, winning Tournament of the Year honours in their respective categories in the 2023 ATP Awards.
For the ninth consecutive year, Indian Wells has been named the ATP Masters 1000 Tournament of the Year. Held amidst the natural beauty and backdrop of the desert landscape, the Indian Wells Tennis Garden offers top-notch player facilities and amenities; plentiful practice courts that allow fans to watch players up close; and unparalleled dining options.
“We’re honored to see the ATP players once again vote Indian Wells as their favourite 1000-level stop of the year,” said BNP Paribas Open Tournament Director Tommy Haas. “This award reflects the dedicated support from all of our wonderful tournament staff, volunteers, fans and so many others who bring the BNP Paribas Open to life every year and contribute to the sustained success of our one-of-a-kind event.”
Carlos Alcaraz claimed the third Masters 1000 title of his young career at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden in March, and Rohan Bopanna and Matthew Ebden teamed to take the doubles crown.
Like the BNP Paribas Open, the cinch Championships is a repeat winner, having also been recognised in 2015, 2016, 2018 and 2022. Alcaraz claimed the singles title at this year’s Queen’s Club-hosted event, with the duo of Ivan Dodig and Austin Krajicek taking the doubles.
“We’re absolutely delighted to have been voted ATP 500 Tournament of the Year by the players again this year,” said Chris Pollard, the tournament’s Digital, Technology and Events Director. “The LTA takes great pride in continuously improving the experience of the players who take part in the tournament, and this award is recognition of the hard work of the LTA event team and the collaborative way in which they work with The Queen’s Club, the ATP and a number of other sponsors and suppliers to deliver a world-class event.”
Celebrating its 75th anniversary in 2023, the Nordea Open was voted ATP 250 Tournament of the Year for 11 consecutive years between 2002 and 2012. The 2023 singles and doubles titles went to Andrey Rublev and Gonzalo Escobar/Aleksandr Nedovyesov, respectively.
“The whole team and all volunteers are, of course, extremely happy and proud to receive this award,” said Christer Hult, CEO and Managing Director of the Nordea Open. “Our ambition is to provide all players with the highest quality of service both on and off the court regardless of their ranking. We want all players to be treated as they are No. 1. This award is a proof that it has been appreciated by all the players who played the Nordea Open this year and I’d like to thank all the players for their appreciation and welcome everyone back to Båstad 2024.”
On the ATP Challenger Tour, the Mextenis León Open was selected by players as Tournament of the Year.
