Our Top Ticket Pick for the Miami Open
And it’s not just the big guns that come out to play. From March 23rd to April 5th you will see plenty of younger talent, Halep, Bouchard, Kokianakis and What’s-his-Name among them.
Whether you are looking to see a future Hall of Famer, a multiple Grand Slam champion, or a rising star, all will be on display at the Crandon Park Tennis Center during the event’s two weeks.
The list of competitors this year is formidable, or as the French say, ‘formidable’. Shuffling around in the men’s corner you have,
- World No. 1 Novak Djokovic, seven-time Grand Slam winner and defending Miami Open champion and reigning Australian Open champ, yada, yada, yada…
- 17-time Grand Slam champion, Roger Federer (Yay for Roger!)
- 14-time Grand Slam winner, Rafael Nadal
- 2-time Grand Slam winner and some guy with hair implants who won an Olympic Gold medal.
- Our mate Juan will be there too!
The women’s field for 2015 is fierce, catty and half dressed (well, Serena will be. Many of the other players in the women’s draw get dressed and stay dressed before they go on court.)
- Serena, she has 19 Grand Slams up her kilt. Insane.
- 7-time Grand Slam Champion Venus Williams
- 5-time Grand Slam winner and reigning French Open champion Maria Sharapova (Yay Maria, ‘Urrrrgh-ah!)
- 2 time Grand Slam winner Victoria Azarenka and that one who did goodly at Wimbledon a couple of times
Fans will also see last year’s break out stars Stan Wawrinka, the 2014 Australian Open champion, and Marin Cilic, winner at the US Open as they make a run for the Miami Open title.
And, even though Stan will probably win both men’s and ladies singles titles (yes, he’s that hot), we still think you should turn up, ticket in hand and cheer everyone else along. It helps their self esteem.
According to their website, the Miami Open is more than just a tennis event. That’s right. It’s also a weatherman’s nightmare and a tropical hunting ground for man eating reptiles. Yes, tennis has everything you could want in Miami.
