Djokovic, Nadal & Thiem To Suit Up For Doubles In Indian Wells

Wawrinka/Zverev, Schwartzman/Goffin among the notable teams

The doubles draw at the BNP Paribas Open has historically been filled with the world’s best doubles teams and intriguing pairings featuring all-star singles players, and this year will be no exception.

The top three seeds in singles this year will all hit the doubles court in California. Novak Djokovic/Viktor Troicki reunite for the first time since clinching the inaugural ATP Cup in January for Team Serbia, while two-time champions Rafael Nadal/Marc Lopez (2010, 2012) look for a hat trick in the desert. Dominic Thiem/Grigor Dimitrov will make their debut outing as a team.

Other notable singles players teaming up include Stan Wawrinka/Alexander Zverev and Felix Auger-Aliassime/Fabio Fognini. Karen Khachanov/Andrey Rublev look for their first ATP Masters 1000 title after runner-up showings at the 2018 Miami Open presented by Itau and 2019 Rolex Paris Masters. Diego Schwartzman/David Goffin also add to the stacked field.
