Cameron Norrie has won the 2021 Indian Wells Masters, but how much prize money does he stand to receive?
The prestigious tournament played in California is part of the men’s ATP and women’s WTA world tours.
It is one of nine events that make up the ATP Tour Masters 1000.
Other venues included Monte Carlo, Paris, and Madrid.
Due to the covid-19 pandemic, the tournament was not played in 2020.
This meant that Austria’s Dominic Thiem was the reigning champion.
However, he did not travel to California to defend his title.
He withdrew owing to a wrist injury sustained earlier in the season.
Bianca Andreescu entered the women’s tournament as champion.
However, the Canadian was knocked out in the third round by Anett Kontaveit.

In the men’s final, Briton Cameron Norrie defeated Georgian world number 36, Nikoloz Basilashvili.
Norrie, who was knocked out the third round at Wimbledon this year by Roger Federer, added his second world tour title of his career – after winning his first in Mexico’s Los Cabos Open earlier in the year.
The current world number 26 will now rise to 16th in the world rankings, and will replace Dan Evans as British number one.
Sir Andy Murray is currently ranked 121st in the world.
Norrie beat Grigor Dimitrov in straight sets – 6-2, 6-4 – to reach the final.
Basilashvili overcame Taylor Fritz 7-6, (7-5), 6-3 to seal his place.
In the women’s final, two-time grand slam winner Victoria Azarenka was beaten by Spain’s Paula Badosa.
Badosa made her route to the final by beating Ons Jabuer in straight sets, whilst Azarenka was taken to three by Jelena Ostapenko.
