An Overview of Male and Female Champions at the Miami Open

Miami engineer William Pino possesses more than three decades of experience, including 16 years as president and chief executive officer of Florida Lighting and Traffic, Inc., and more than two decades in the same positions with Municipal Lighting Systems, Inc. William Pino enjoys taking advantage of Miami weather and resources. To stay physically active, he swims and plays tennis.

The Miami Open was established in 1985 and quickly became one of the most prestigious events in tennis for both male and female players. In recent years, the tournament has even been considered the fifth major, ranking it just behind the US Open, Australian Open, French Open, and Wimbledon. A brief review of the tournament’s past champions would certainly confirm that assertion.

Martina Navratilova, winner of 18 grand slam singles titles, won the first women's event in 1985, while the 1986 event crowned Ivan Lendl and Chris Evert as champions. Lendl would win the title again in 1989, before the men’s side became dominated by legendary American players such as Andre Agassi, Pete Sampras, and Jim Courier. The women’s titles continued to be won by former and current world No. 1s and major champions as well, with Steffi Graf, Monica Seles, and Gabriela Sabatini all winning at least one title.

The Key Biscayne event has continued to draw the world's top players in recent years. Novak Djokovic won his first title at the 2007 Miami Open and has won five of the last six events. His six wins are an all-time record for male players. Serena Williams, meanwhile, has won five Miami Open titles since 2007 and eight overall.
