Our annual preview of the ATP Masters 1000 series tips off in time for Indian Wells 2016. This is the first of a series of the biggest tournaments outside the four majors, the World Tour Finals and (this year) the Olympics.
We span the globe from the hard courts of the southern United States to the red clay of Europe to set up the French Open. Mid-summer sizzles with stops in more Northern America cities before winding down in Shanghai and Paris.
The following slides will review the highlights from 2015 and suggest what to expect as 2016 moves forward. At the moment, it would be easy to select Novak Djokovic as the favorite for every tournament, but we will identify which of the tournaments could be more difficult for him to win.
Who else could rise up and make a bid for dominance? It’s all part of this preview.
