When is the 2021 Miami Open?
The 2021 Miami Open takes place from 23 March-3 April.
Women’s qualifying matches are played on Monday 22-Tuesday 23 March with main-draw women’s singles beginning on Tuesday 23 March.
Each day’s play at the Miami Open consists of a day session and a night session. The day session usually begins at 11am local/14.00 GMT/15.00 BST, with the night session beginning at 7.30pm local/11.30pm GMT/12.30am BST (the UK switches from GMT to BST on Sunday 28 March).
There are night sessions every day of the tournament until the final weekend. On Saturday 3 April there are no men’s singles matches, as the women’s final is played on that day. On Sunday 4 April the men’s final takes place.
WTA Miami Open Players 2021
One of four Premier Mandatory events played throughout the season which are compulsory for those players who rank high enough to participate, the Miami Open always features a top-flight field of the best in women’s tennis and the 2021 edition will be no exception.
The greatest champion – male or female – the Miami Open has ever known, Serena Williams makes her home in Florida and has won the title eight times playing in her ‘backyard’ between 2002 and 2015.
Williams was on a 20-match winning streak in Miami before losing to Svetlana Kuznetsova in 2016, and has not been able to win back-to-back matches since. Could 2021 be the year that Williams reclaims the title?
Australia’s Barty won the Miami Open title in 2019, the last player to do so. Defeating Karolina Pliskova in the final, Barty claimed what was then the biggest title of her career thus far, only to go on and win her maiden Grand Slam at the French Open and capture the WTA Finals Shenzhen crown to boot.
Barty made the Australian Open semifinals in 2020 but otherwise had little opportunity to play and should be raring to go when she returns to defend her Miami Open title in 2021.
Formerly ranked as high as world no. 1 and a current top-10 stalwart, Pliskova is a US Open finalist and has played some of her best tennis on American hard courts including reaching the semifinals of the Miami Open in 2017. She went one better in 2019, defeating Simona Halep to reach the final before losing to Barty – will she take the title in 2021?
Two-time Australian Open champion Azarenka has won three Miami Open titles, defeating Williams, Maria Sharapova and Kuznetsova in respective finals. The Belarusian has been struggling in recent years but made a splendid return to form in 2020, winning the Western & Southern Open and reaching the US Open final – can she bring that same form to Miami?
A semifinalist in Miami in 2015 and 2019, Halep has yet to win the tournament but is sure to be among the favourites when she returns to the WTA Premier Mandatory in 2021.
The Romanian has won 22 WTA Tour-level titles including French Open and Wimbledon and looks likely to challenge Barty for the world no. 1 ranking in 2021; the Miami Open, with Barty attempting to defend her title, could be a key battleground.
Three of Osaka’s six WTA Tour-level titles have come at Grand Slam level, with the Japanese-Haitian player winning the Australian Open in 2019 and the US Open in 2018 and 2020.
A devastating force on hard courts, Osaka had one of her signature victories in Miami in 2018 when she defeated Serena Williams, but she has yet to make a deep run at the tournament – could 2021 be her year in Florida?
The latest star to rise in American women’s tennis, Kenin claimed her maiden Grand Slam title at the Australian Open in 2020, defeating Garbine Muguruza in the final – then proved it was no fluke by reaching the final of the French Open to boot.
The tenacious American lost early to Bianca Andreescu on her last appearance in Miami but has made the semifinals of the Rogers Cup and Western & Southern Open and could be a force at the 2021 Miami Open.
