INDIAN WELLS, Calif. (AP) -- Defending champion Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal headline the field for the BNP Paribas Open in March, giving the tournament the top three men's players in the world during its 40th anniversary in the Southern California desert.

Among the other men's entries are the rest of the top-10 ranked men's players: Stan Wawrinka, Kei Nishikori, Andy Murray, Tomas Berdych, Milos Raonic, Marin Cilic and David Ferrer.

Two-time Indian Wells champion Maria Sharapova headlines the women's field, which includes Ana Ivanovic, Caroline Wozniacki, defending champion Flavia Pennetta, Jelena Jankovic, Victoria Azarenka, Daniela Hantuchova and Vera Zvonareva.

Other top-10 women include Simona Halep, Petra Kvitova, Agnieszka Radwanska, Angelique Kerber and Dominika Cibulkova.

The remaining spots in men's and women's draws will be filled by qualifiers and wild cards, which will be announced later.
