After the huge success of the Indian Wells tournament or the BNP Paribas Open as its known, now our eyes are set at the next big tournament; the Miami Open, which is the road towards the highly awaited grand slam i.e. is the French open. However things look a little grim for the management of the Miami Open as top seed players or the crowd pullers, the likes of Andy Murray, Novak Djokovic, Serena Williams to name a few have pulled out of the tournament due to various health reasons.
The Miami Open has a rich history as it’s been going on for 33 years since 1987 regarded as a good practice venue for top athletes to gain momentum for the French Open right around the corner. Even with big stars missing and fan favorite Serena William an 8th time champion or Djokovic, a 3 time champion we still will be able to watch the Swiss maestro in action, the GOAT Roger Federer who has been on a role of sorts winning the Australian and then the Indian Wells Open in a comeback fairytale of sorts. Rafa Nadal will want to gain form so that he can recapture some more titles and has his eyes set on his backyard in Paris.
With some issues erupting between different parties regarding the event with courts and surfaces in a legal battle the sport of tennis and its fans shouldn’t have to suffer as the Miami Open is truly a treasure worth keeping.

The court surface and weather is totally different than that of Australian Open, Dubai Open and the Indian Wells. The champion of the two major singles titles this year, Roger the Swiss Sensation might find Miami a little different but with the form he is in; I believe he can easily win this as well.
With Djokovic and Murray out due to injury Stan Wawrinka will be entering as the top seed of the world of tennis for the first time, but he was demolished by Roger, can he get back and win only time will tell. My pick would be Roger on form but he has missed the tournament for the past 3 years, other players such as Kyrgios, Del potro, Rafa Nadal, Nishikori all have a good chance of winning it, may be fair to call it an wide open tournament, a must watch.
