Miami Open History
The tournament was founded by former player Butch Buchholz in 1985, whose name the Miami Open trophy now carries.
Over the years, the tournament’s popularity has increased so much that it’s now considered one of the most prestigious sporting events in the world. Winning the trophy at this tournament is every player’s dream.
The Miami Open is now held at Hard Rock Stadium. Previously, the tournament venue was the Tennis Center at Crandon Park in Key Biscayne. The venue has changed, but the court surface has always been the same. For almost 35 years, the Miami Open has been played on a hard surface.
This is the kind of surface that some players simply adore. Novak Djokovic is probably the best example. He and Andre Agassi share the record for the most titles in the Men’s Singles at the Miami Open.
Considering that Agassi retired in 2006, the Serbian player has a chance to take him out of the equation by winning the Miami Open to claim the outright record. Meanwhile, in the Women’s Singles, Serena Williams is the record-holder with eight titles.

Betting On The Miami Open
Another thing that makes the Miami Open stand out from the crowd is the prizes. There are 1000 ranking points awarded to the winners of the men’s and women’s singles titles. That is a considerable amount that could see them rise in the standings.
Furthermore, this tournament also has big prize money up for grabs. The winners of the tournaments usually get well over a million dollars for their achievements.
The same is going to be the case with this year’s tournament, which is why you can expect the world’s best tennis players to gather in Florida at the end of March.
The Miami Open is among the smallest tennis tournaments annually, as only 96 players compete in each singles tournament. This means that there’s plenty of room in this tournament for all the world’s greatest players.
It also means that there are plenty of matches bettors can choose from. And considering that this is an important sporting event, you can be certain that your bookmaker is going to include the Miami Open in its offer.
Furthermore, you will probably be able to choose from various betting markets, including the match-winner, sets O/U, games O/U, and so on. You will even be able to put your money on outright bets, such as the tournament winner.
