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 popularity of the tournament 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 2020 tournament was the second time that Miami Open is held at Hard Rock Stadium. Previously, the venue of the tournament 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, Miami Open has been played on the 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 Men’s Singles at the Miami Open.
Considering that Agassi has retired in 2006, the Serbian player had a chance to take him out of the equation by winning the Miami Open 2020. In Women’s Singles, Serena Williams is the record-holder with eight titles.

What Makes Bettors Excited About 2021 Miami Open?
Almost every year, around 300k spectators get to enjoy watching Miami Open matches from the stands. We say ‘almost’ because in 2021 the tournament has limited attendance due to COVID protocols. Only about 1,000 people get to watch matches in person.
