MIAMI, FL, EE. UU. – Serena Williams, la 23 veces campeona de Grand Slam, está programada para regresar al Miami Open 2018 para despedir al torneo del Crandon Park Tennis Center.

En el evento final en Key Biscayne antes de mudarse a una instalación de última generación en el Hard Rock Stadium en 2019, la lista oficial de jugadoras del Miami Open para 2018 incluye a 75 de las 76 mejores mujeres clasificadas.

Williams, quien ha ganado un récord de ocho títulos individuales de Miami Open, recibió un wildcard para el torneo en 2018. Después de su récord de la Open Era con su 23 ° título de Grand Slam en el Abierto de Australia 2017, Williams se perdió el resto de la temporada mientras se preparaba para el nacimiento de su hija, Alexis Olympia.

La lista de jugadoras cuenta con la campeona reinante del Abierto de Australia, Caroline Wozniacki, quien recuperó el ranking mundial número 1 después de su primer título de Grand Slam en Melbourne.

Ya sea que esté buscando ver un futuro miembro del Salón de la Fama, un campeón múltiple de Grand Slam o una estrella en ascenso, todo estará en exhibición en el Crandon Park Tennis Center durante las dos semanas del evento, del 19 de marzo al 1 de abril.

La lista de jugadoras para 2018 es igualmente impresionante con la siete veces campeona de Grand Slam Venus Williams, la cinco veces campeona de Grand Slam Maria Sharapova, dos veces ganadora del Grand Slam y campeona defensora de Wimbledon Garbiñe Muguruza, la actual campeona del Abierto de Francia 2017 Jelena Ostapenko, la ganadora del US Open 2017 Sloane Stephens, la medallista de oro olímpica y residente en Miami Monica Puig, y la dos veces ganadora del Grand Slam Angelique Kerber.

Miami, FL – Highlighted by 20-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer and 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams, the 2018 Miami Open will once again bring a Grand Slam quality player field to its farewell tournament at the Crandon Park Tennis Center on Key Biscayne.

In the final event on Key Biscayne prior to moving to a state-of-the-art facility at Hard Rock Stadium in 2019, the Miami Open’s 2018 official acceptance lists include 78 of the top 79 ranked men and 75 of the top 76 ranked women.

The player field features a combined 17 Grand Slam singles champions including Federer, who claimed his 20th major title at this year’s Australian Open, and Caroline Wozniacki who regained the World No. 1 ranking following her first Grand Slam title in Melbourne.

Serena Williams, who has won a record eight Miami Open singles titles, was granted a wildcard into the 2018 tournament. Following her Open Era record 23rd career Grand Slam title at the 2017 Australian Open, Williams missed the remainder of the season while preparing for the birth of her daughter.
