Miami Tennis Cup November 30 – December 2, Crandon Park Tennis Center, 7300 Crandon Boulevard, Key Biscayne

The inaugural Miami Tennis Cup will feature the Super Six of the world’s top-ranked players, including U.S. Open Champion and British Olympic Gold Medalist, Andy Murray, and French Open Champion Juan Carlos Ferrero, the former world number one player from Spain. The tournament will also be a tribute to the iconic career of Florida resident, Andy Roddick, who will also be participating as part of his homecoming farewell tour. The Super Six will play in a double-elimination, round robin format that will also feature ATP heavyweights Nicolás Almagro (ESP), Alejandro Falla (COL) and top ranked American John Isner. All best-of-three-set matches will be broadcast live by ESPN3 and played on the uniquely transformed Stadium Court, the first ever white stadium court, complete with red lines, painted within a blue area surrounding the court. The red/white/blue court will be developed purposely to commemorate our nation’s flag. Matches begin Friday at 7 p.m., and the semi-final matches will begin at 5 p.m. on Saturday. Final match is Sunday at 5 with the first ever champion of the Miami Tennis Cup receiving a cash prize and trophy presented by a surprise celebrity legend from the world of tennis.
