While it doesn’t have as much tennis history as other Grand Slam events like Wimbledon or the US Open, the Sony Open (also known as the Miami Masters) has become one of the premier ATP and WTP events each year and definitely features nicer weather! Held in South Florida at Key Biscayne in the serene comfort of March, the tournament also provides a wonderful destination for those seeking a fun spring trip to Miami!
One of the noteworthy things about the Sony Open is that it has been one of the most innovative and progressive tennis tournaments around. It was the first American tennis event to utilize replay technology for close calls in 2006, it has one of the largest draws of nearly 100 players in each category, and it provides one of the biggest allocations for cash prizes in a non-Grand Slam tournament.
Because of the excitement around this event, all of the big name tennis stars mark the Sony Open on their calendars. Therefore, you will be able to see the likes of Novak Djokovic, Serena Williams, Rafael Nadal, Maria Sharapova, Andy Murray, Victoria Azarenka, Roger Federer, Li Na, and Sloane Stephens competing for a big prize.
And while you embrace some of the finest tennis that the world has to offer, you can also take in the rich history and culture that exists around the Miami area and the Florida Keys. With scores of wonderful beaches, high-end entertainment, shopping, restaurants, and more, attending the Sony Open can be just part of an incredible trip to Florida! Championship Tennis Tours can help you make that first step to the Miami Masters with various packages and ticket deals to all the matches!
