One of the biggest tournaments outside of the Grand Slams, the Miami Open this year will be played from the third week of March. In the passages mentioned below we look at the various options you can use to watch the Miami Open live streamed or on television and also the ticketing options for the competition in 2023.
Miami Open is played on the outdoor hard court surfaces of Miami Gardens in Florida with the Tennis Centre at Crandon Park in Key Biscayne playing host to the tournament before 2018.
The Crandon Park surface wasn’t the quickest in the world and that made for longish rallies in weather conditions that were exhaustingly hot and humid.
That, combined with the lawsuit made by the original owners of the land at which the old stadium was built forced the organizers to change the venue.
As a part of the men’s circuit Miami Open is played as an ATP 1000 Masters event while the women’s draw is held under the auspices of the WTA 1000 series of tournaments.
The tournament draw has 96 singles players on both, the men’s and women’s circuit with sponsors like Lipton, Ericsson, NASDAQ, Sony and Itau having sponsored the event in the past.
