The 2008 Indian Wells Masters (also known as the Pacific Life Open for sponsorship reasons) was a tennis tournament played on outdoor hard courts. It was the 33rd edition of the Indian Wells Masters, and was part of the ATP Masters Series of the 2008 ATP Tour, and of the Tier I Series of the 2008 WTA Tour. Both the men's and the women's events took place at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden in Indian Wells, California, United States, from March 10 through March 23, 2008.

The men's singles were headlined by the World No. 1, reigning Wimbledon and US Open champion and Masters Cup winner Roger Federer, the ATP No. 2, Chennai runner-up and the defending champion Rafael Nadal, and the Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic. Also competing in the field were the 2007 Moscow title holder Nikolay Davydenko, the Masters Cup finalist David Ferrer, Andy Roddick, David Nalbandian and Richard Gasquet.

The women's draw included the WTA No. 2 and the Australian Open runner-up Ana Ivanovic, the Sydney and Dubai finalist Svetlana Kuznetsova, and the Australian Open semifinalist Jelena Janković. Other top seeds present were the Tour Championships finalist and the Australian Open champion Maria Sharapova, the defending champion Daniela Hantuchová, Marion Bartoli, Nicole Vaidišová and Dinara Safina.

Serbians Novak Djokovic[1] and Ana Ivanovic[2] won the respective men's and women's singles titles. For Djokovic, it was his second title of the year, following his success at the Australian Open, whilst for Ivanovic, it was her first title of the year, but it would be her last Tier I/Premier title to date.
