Novak Djokovic win

Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and defending champion Dominic Thiem are set to be the top three seeds when the BNP Paribas Open gets underway next week in Indian Wells. The draw for the first ATP Masters 1000 of the 2019 season will be made Tuesday afternoon at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden, and main draw action will begin Thursday.

Djokovic is attempting to win this tournament for a record sixth time. Though he made an early exit last year, falling to Philipp Kohlschreiber in the third round, the World No. 1 returns to the Coachella Valley in top form.

The Serbian has a perfect 18-0 season record, following triumphs at the inaugural ATP Cup, the Australian Open and last week at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships.

Nadal, a three-time BNP Paribas Open champion, also enters Indian Wells on a winning streak after recently claiming the ATP 500 title at the Abierto Mexicano Telcel presentado por HSBC. The World No. 2 owns a record 35 Masters 1000 titles, one more than Djokovic, in addition to a record 384 match wins at the Masters 1000 level.

Thiem, who reached a career-high No. 3 in the FedEx ATP Rankings on Monday, clinched his first ATP Masters 1000 title here last year as he battled back to defeat five-time champion Roger Federer 3-6, 6-3, 7-5. Thiem was one of three first-time Masters 1000 winners in 2019, along with Fabio Fognini (Monte-Carlo) and Daniil Medvedev (Cincinnati, Shanghai).

Here’s all you need to know about the Indian Wells tennis tournament: what is the schedule, where to watch, who has won and more.

Novak Djokovic meme: Novak Djokovic draws Spider-Man comparison
Novak Djokovic recently won the Dubai Tennis Championship in stylish fashion, beating Stefanos Tsitsipas in the final 6-3, 6-4. However, along with continuing his amazing run of form, Novak Djokovic has been drawing comparisons to Spider-Man due to his elasticity and sleek movements. More so, Novak Djokovic has spectacular agility and quick reflexes that can allow him to reach from one place to another in quick time, similar to Spider-Man.
