In the previous season, the ‘sunshine double’ (Indian Wells and Miami Open) was canceled in wake of the COVID-19 global pandemic. Prior to that, the event was held successfully in 2019, where Roger Federer was crowned champion in the men’s category and the World No.1 Ashleigh Barty had won the women’s event.
