Miami Open 2018 Schedule & Order of Play

Who is playing the Miami Open in 2018?

Eight-time champion, Serena Williams looks set to return to Miami in 2018, as she continues her comeback after the birth of her first child. The Miami Open is one of Serena’s most productive hunting grounds as she has dominated what is pretty much her home event since the turn of the century. 

Serena will be joined by her sister Venus Williams, who has got three Miami titles in her cabinet. Interestingly, the elder sister won the most recent of her three titles all the way back in 2001, a year before Serena secured her first success. Can the resurgent Venus claim what would be a very popular title? 

Victoria Azarenka is the only other multiple former champion in the field. Last season’s Miami Open came too soon for Azarenka, who had given birth to her first child just over three months earlier, but the three-time champion should be back for the 2018 edition, looking to emulate her title-winning runs in 2009, 2011 and 2016.

Outside the Williams and Azarenka, the only other active former champions are 2012 winner, Agnieszka Radwanska and reigning champion, Johanna Konta, who will both try to double their tally of titles in 2018. 

The usual suspects will all be there- Simona Halep, Karolina Pliskova, Caroline Wozniacki and Garbine Muguruza, while Maria Sharapova and Petra Kvitova return to Miami after missing out last year. Sharapova was still serving her doping ban- looking to finally get her hands on the big prize after five runner-up finishes- while Kvitova was recovering from a knife attack she suffered during the off-season.

About the Miami Open

The WTA 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.  The 2018 Miami Open will be the last to be staged at Crandon Park, as the tournament moves to the the Dolphins Stadium, home ground of NFL team Miami Dolphins from the 2019 season.

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.

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.
