Tournament Info
Tier: Premier mandatory, Prize Money: $6,993,450, Surface: Hard, Director: Adam Barrett
Miami is one of the most glamorous and upbeat cities in the world, which is why it is the perfect host for the Miami Open presented by Itaú - the largest tennis event in the world outside of the Grand Slams.

A combined ATP/WTA two-week extravaganza in March, this Premier Mandatory event was first held in Delray Beach in 1985. After moving to Boca Raton in 1986, it settled in its permanent home in Miami's Key Biscayne in 1987 - its 30-acre facility eventually becoming known as the Tennis Center at Crandon Park.

Serena Williams became one of just four players in the Open Era with at least seven titles at one event by capturing Miami yet again in 2014. Victoria Azarenka, Kim Clijsters, five-time champ Steffi Graf, Martina Hingis, Arantxa Sánchez-Vicario, Monica Seles and Venus Williams also have multiple Miami Open titles. Jana Novotna has the Miami doubles record with seven titles.

Miami has twice been honored as the WTA Premier Tournament Of The Year - in 1995 and 2004.

Welcome back Cirstea!...she took out the trash..that Olympic medal was a fluke.
Cirstea is so up and down. I've always wondered what's on her mind when she goes on these losing streaks.
Coco is looking like Big Bertha out there...
Big Bertha is acting bratty...again..
garbegine ate a bagel..

Lay Down Laughing..Big Bertha and Garbegine are mediocre...I guess WTA is trying really hard to make garbine happen..favorable scheduling and court assignments..this girl has no fans.No No
McHale is a tough opponent when she isn't choking. Remember last year she played Serena really close at this tournament and at Wimby. She has notable wins over some top players.

yes she runs down everything...Serena was not happy when she played her at Wimby,she should have taken it as a compliment..these girls want to test their game against the best.
Here comes the rain. Just what Mugu was hoping for so she can get free coaching. It's pretty late in the eve already. We'll see if they return to the court tonight
Sorana is probably the prettiest amongst all current player Heart
