The last two women standing in singles play— Maria Sharapova and Caroline Wozniacki— kicked of the 2013 BNP Paribas Open finals in Indian Wells Sunday afternoon.
Their first set began just after noon, as the Russian Sharapova looks to continue on her winning streak, and reclaim the tournament champion title she last held in 2006. Wozniacki won in 2011.
Sharapova has won in four of the last six meetings between the two players, and has she lost a set in her five matches in the Indian Wells tournament.
When women's play wraps up, the men will take to the court.
Juan Martin Del Potro, his first time in the finals here, will square off against seasoned champion Rafael Nadal, who has won the BNP in both 2007 and 2009.
Both the men's and women's winners will receive $1 million, while the runners-up will receive $500,000.
