Legend
Roll of Honour incorrectly on the website of the Indian Wells tournament held in this period.

The site seems that the tournament has started in 1976 when it began in 1974:

The 1974 American Airlines Tennis Games was a men's tennis tournament played on outdoor hard courts. It was the first edition of the tournament, which was a non-tour event i.e. not part of the 1974 Commercial Union Assurance Grand Prix or 1974 World Championship Tennis circuit. The tournament was played in Tucson, Arizona and ran from March 18 through March 24, 1974. First-seeded John Newcombe won the singles title and $25,000 first-prize money.
