2022’s Tennis Season is well underway, and all the stars are coming out to play for one of the biggest events of the year.
The Indian Wells Masters 1000 is finally back for fans and players alike, creating such a great atmosphere for competition.
There are few tournaments in tennis that can even compete with the Indian Wells masters, and it provides betting fanatics a ton of matches to be able to bet on!
Cameron Norrie is the reigning, defending 2021 Champion, and will be looking to continue his great start to the season in the desert.
Let’s get into the possible outright champions of this prestigious tournament.
The “GOAT” – Rafael Nadal
Rafael Nadal has defied all expectations and has made a massive start in the 2022 season.
The Spanish Legend is now on a 16-game win-streak dating back to the Australian Open and does not look to be stopping anytime soon.
Beating Danil Medvedev, the current world no.1 twice in the process, certainly helps, and his confidence at this point is sky-high.
Usually known for his play on clay courts, Nadal has really surprised many tennis fans with his level on the hard court, and it looks to be sky-high for Nadal heading into one of the slower hard courts in Indian Wells.
World Number #1, Danil Medvedev
Danil Medvedev is going to have a lot of revenge in his heart after Rafael ended two runs at the AO and Acapulco.
The Russian tank will need to channel his inner self, and make it known that he is here to stay at Indian Wells.
The newly crowned #1 player in the world, Medvedev has the game to beat down on anyone in his path.
But it depends on his confidence and vibe during the match.
If Danil can get his mind right, this tournament can be his bounce-back into the hard-court swing.
A Dark Horse – Carlos Alcaraz
Known as Nadal’s protege, Carlos Alcaraz is one of the most talented players at such a young age.
The Spaniard is creative in the way he approaches the game and has ground strokes that can trouble anyone on the tour.
Although he needs to develop a more well-rounded mentality and style, he is already a contender for multiple titles at the age of 20.
The tour is not sleeping on him, and you shouldn’t either.
Favourites and underdogs alike, there will be so many matches that are must-watches in Indian Wells, and Stake.com will have all your betting needs!
