Andy Murray And Stan Wawrinka Preparing Ahead Of Indian Wells

World number one Andy Murray hit the practice court on Monday and Tuesday at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells.

Murray is preparing for his 12th campaign in Indian Wells, in which he hopes to make it all the way. The Briton has yet to win it all in the desert – he was close to achieving that eight years ago in 2009, but lost in the final to Rafa Nadal. 

Murray, who won the ATP Dubai Open recently, had a disappointing campaign in Indian Wells last year, losing in the third round to Federico Delbonis. 

Another Grand Slam champion, Stan Wawrinka, was spotted practicing in California on Monday. 

Wawrinka has never had that much success in Indian Wells, as his best results at the tournament were two quarter-final achievements, in 2008 and 2011. Like Murray, the Swiss tennis star will certainly be looking to leave his mark in the desert this March. 

World number three Wawrinka hasn't won a title so far in 2017, and winning one in Indian Wells would be welcomed by the 31-year-old. 

2017 Australian Open champion Roger Federer practiced on Monday as well – he had a hit with Denis Istomin of Uzbekistan.

The BNP Paribas Open men's in Indian Wells is set to be held from March 9-19.
