The tournament also offers the same prize money for men and women across singles and doubles competitions and has done since 2012, which means each tour plays for a share of $8,359,455.
According to the tournament the Indian Wells 2021 singles champions received $1,209,730, which is down 10.66% compared to the amounts Dominic Thiem and Bianca Andreescu each received in 2019.
Meanwhile, runners up receive just over half that amount with $640,000, which, although down -6.71% from two years ago.
