September 23, 2013|By Diane Pucin

The 2014 BNP Paribas Open, the largest combined ATP and WTA combined two-week event, will be held March 3-16 at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden. ESPN has announced it has renewed its television contract with the tournament through 2020, tournament director Steve Simon said.

The 2014 edition of the tournament will once again culminate on ESPN2 on March 14, ESPNEWS on March 15, and both singles finals will air live back-to-back on ESPN2 on March 16. Beginning in 2015, coverage of the final weekend of the tournament will be on ESPN2 on Friday and on ABC on Saturday and Sunday.

“We are pleased to renew our agreement with ESPN and excited to bring the BNP Paribas Open to their audiences through 2020,” Simon said. “We believe that ESPN and ABC deliver high-quality exposure that showcases our event to fans throughout the country, and supports the continued growth of the tournament.”   In addition to the television broadcast, the tournament will continue to be available on ESPN3, ESPN's live multi-screen sports network.
