Who is playing the Miami Open in 2017?

The best in women’s tennis are back in Miami – but the field is wide open. With eight-time champion Serena Williams out due to injury and defending champion Victoria Azarenka unable to play as she rebuilds her body after giving birth to son Leo, there are just three active Miami Open champions in the draw. Three-time winner Venus Williams last claimed the Miami Open title in 2001, although the American has been turning the clock back all year with her runs to the Australian Open final and the quarterfinals of Indian Wells; 2006 Miami Open champion Svetlana Kuznetsova is another resurgent veteran, although the Russian has just made a deep run to the Indian Wells final; and 2012 champion Agnieszka Radwanska, a woman who should never be underestimated despite her lack of form in recent months.

There’s no shortage of potential contenders in Miami, however. 2016 semifinalist Angelique Kerber will be dying to crown her return to world no. 1 with her best ever result in Miami. World no. 3 Karolina Pliskova has won titles in Brisbane and Doha and made the semifinals of Indian Wells and, by her own admission, hasn’t even played her best title so far in 2017; the big-serving Czech will be an intimidating opponent. World no. 4 Simona Halep has only just returned from injury, so it might be too early to expect too much from the Romanian, and the same goes for powerful Madison Keys - but WTA Finals Singapore champion Dominika Cibulkova and French Open champion Garbine Muguruza have both shown some promising form recently – so has the newest member of the top 10, Taipei City and Dubai champion Elina Svitolina.

Then there’s Caroline Wozniacki, who has her sights set on a return to the top 10 after back-to-back finals in Doha and Dubai, Australian Open semifinalist Coco Vandeweghe and a host of challengers besides.

About the Miami Open

The ATP Miami Open presented by Itau (formerly the Sony Open) follows on from two weeks of tennis in California, and boasts the participation of the sport's top men and women in a combined ATP Masters Series and Premier level event.

Tournament founder Butch Buchholz's ambition was for the Miami tennis tournament to become the first Grand Slam at the year. Christened "The Winter Wimbledon", its debut in 1985 came at a time when the Australian Open was held at the end of the year. The first ball was struck at the event in the February of the aforementioned year, with Tim Mayotte and Martina Navratilova the first champions crowned. Each defeated a fellow American - Mayotte beating Scott Davis, and Navratilova taking down Chris Evert.

While the event has never reached major status, it has - for the duration of its life - been in a two-way fight with Indian Wells for the title of the 'Fifth Slam'. The tournament broke its all-time attendance record in 2012, with 326,131 fans turning out to watch the action. Last year, an impressive 300,952 total attendances were recorded - the seventh straight year that attendance would soar above 300,000.

Now housed at the Tennis Centre at Crandon Park, Miami is one of only two non-Slam events that runs over the course of two weeks. It showcases the best players in the world as part of the spring hard-court swing, ahead of the start of the European clay court season, which will ultimately lead up to the second Grand Slam of the year: Roland Garros.
