Watch Indian Wells live stream: 2023 preview

It's finals weekend at Indian Wells 2023 with the women up first today to find out who will compete for the $1.26m purse and the glory on Sunday. (The runner-up gets half that amount, by the way.)

Left in the WTA contest are Elena Rybakina and Aryna Sabalenka, the big hitters in the women's competition and the most recent Wimbledon and Australian Open champions respectively. Rybakina pulled off an imperious two-set victory over top seed Iga Swiatek in the semis and second seed Sabalenka will not be taking her lightly.

The men's semis are today but there will be no defending champion present after Jannik Sinner beat Taylor Fritz in the quarters in a pulsating three-set encounter. Sinner will need something special to upset his next-round opponent, Carlos Alcaraz, though. The Spaniard cruised past Felix Auger Aliassime in two sets in the quarters. On the other side of the draw, it's Daniil Medvedev against Frances Tiafoe for a place in the final.

Arguably the biggest tennis tournament outside of the Grand Slams, Indian Wells is the first leg of the coast-to-coast Sunshine Double, and one of the glitziest tournaments of the season.

Here's how to watch an Indian Wells 2023 live stream wherever you are - starting with FREE access in the UK. We've also listed the tournament schedule further down the page.
