History of the Miami Open Tennis Tournament
The first-ever women’s Miami Open was held in 1985, and 97 of the top 100 female tennis players competed for the top prize. Martina Navratilova won the first tournament, and her match against Chris Evert was played out in front of a sell-out crowd.
After enjoying great success in its early years, the tournament moved to its permanent home at Crandon Park in 1989 after bouncing around venues since its inception. It remained the event host until 2018, when the impressive Miami Gardens replaced it.
The likes of Steffi Graf and Monica Seles dominated the tournament in its early years – at least until the arrival of the Williams sisters. Venus won in 1998, 1999, and 2001, while Serena Williams won in 2002, 2003, and 2004. Serena has eight titles, the most decorated female player in Miami Open history.
In more recent history, now-retired Ashleigh Barty has wowed fans at the Miami Open, winning the title in 2019 and 2021 before announcing her retirement from the sport.
