The 2010 Sony Ericsson Open in Key Biscayne, Florida will be a great opportunity for tennis fans in America to see the world’s best in person from March 22nd to April 4th. All the big names are scheduled to play at Crandon Park including Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray, Dinara Safina, and both Venus and Serena Williams. The women’s world #1, Serena Williams, will be looking to avenge her 2009 defeat in the Sony Ericsson Open finals to Belarusian tennis phenom Victoria Azarenka. Williams recently paid the 20-year-old back at the Australian Open where the American dispatched Azarenka in the quarterfinals in route to another grand slam title.
On the men’s side, Andy Murray won the tournament last year over Novak Djokovic, but England’s national hero will be hard pressed to repeat this year with a healthy Federer and Nadal in the tournament. An American man hasn’t won the Sony Ericsson since Andy Roddick won in 2004. Roddick started 2010 in good form winning the Brisbane Invitational in January, but lost in the quarterfinals of the Australian Open partly due to a shoulder injury. With both the men’s and women’s tournaments stocked with talent, Sony Ericsson Open tickets will be some of hottest items on the market this year.
