This tournament also marked Serena Williams' return to Indian Wells for the first time since 2001 where she ended up winning against Kim Clijsters in the final, which garnered a lot of controversy because she received a walkover in the semifinals where she was due to play her sister, Venus Williams.[1]

Simona Halep won the title, defeating Jelena Janković in the final 2–6, 7–5, 6–4.
