Roger Federer returns as defending champion as the best players in the world converge in Crandon Park for the 2018 Miami Open, which is live from 19 March to 1 April.

Miami Masters 2018 Tournament Schedule

Who is playing the Miami Masters in 2018?

Roger Federer returns to the scene of last year's triumph while Rafael Nadal attempts to win the Miami title for the first time in his career when action begins at Crandon Park from March 19.

A star-studded field also includes six-time champion, Novak Djokovic and two-time winner, Andy Murray, who both return to the Masters 1000 tournament after missing out last season because of injuries. 

Federer’s strong start to the year (and strong season overall!) included a third title of the season in Miami, but it wasn't all plain sailing for the great Swiss, who saved match point in his quarter final over Tomas Berdych, and was pushed to three tie breaks by Nick Kyrgios in the semis. Having weathered those storms, Federer turned it on in the final, dismissing great rival Nadal to win his third Miami crown. His previous successes at Key Biscayne were consecutive titles in 2005 and 2006.

While Federer celebrated his Miami title, Nadal was reflecting on a third runner-up finish of the campaign, having already lost finals at the Australian Open and Acapulco. The Spaniard reached the Miami final on five occasions- 2005, 2008, 2011, 2014 and 2017- but he has been unable to cross the line. Will 2018 be the year for the great Spaniard? 

No man has more Miami titles that Novak Djokovic (he is joint level with Andre Agassi on six), and the Serbian will be keen to reestablish his dominance when he takes to the court for the 2018 tournament. Prior to pulling out last year, the 30-year-old had been champion in each of the previous three seasons, adding to his titles in 2007, 2010 and 2011. He might have had his problems last season, but someone as successful as he had been in Miami cannot be discounted. That's why he is a major front-runner for the 2018 crown. 

Another multiple champion making his comeback from injury is Andy Murray. The Scot is a two-time champion in Miami, his most recent title coming in 2013.

Former finalist, Kei Nishikori also takes his place following an injury ravaged 2017, as do Stan Wawrinka and Milos Raonic, who also missed a big chunk of the 2017 season because of respective injuries. 

Nick Kyrgios impressed with his semi-final run last year, and he will be keen to make at least a similar impression next season, while Alexander Zverev will once again spearhead the Next Gen ATP stars.

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. 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.

The Miami Open 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.
