The Sony Open is a great barometer for what to expect every year on the tennis circuit which begins today at the Tennis Center At Crandon Park down in Miami. The tournament runs from today through the 30th and features a field of the top 64 male and female players in the world all competing to take home the title of Sony Open
Serena Williams is the top ranked women's tennis player in the world and is admittedly very exciting about this years Sony Open as it takes place right in her backyard who lives about an hour away in Palm Beach Gardens and won the tournament over Maria Sharapova a year ago. Williams is attempting to win her seventh Sony Open title which would give her the record for most ever as she is currently tied with Andre Agassi at six titles.
On the other side of the tournament Andy Murray hopes to repeat as Sony Open Champion in 2014, but has a very tough route if he is going to do so. If Murray is to repeat he will most likely have to go through the gauntlet that includes Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic to defend his title.
Typically tournaments have tiered ticket prices with the cheapest being the first set of games with ticket prices going up as the tournament progresses. For instance, Sony Open tickets are averaging $148 for the first two rounds of the tennis tournament but that goes up to $186 for the Quarter and Semifinals. By the time it reaches the Championship matches Sony Open tickets have skyrocketed all the way up to an average price of $275.
Aside from the Sony Open the two biggest tennis tournaments are undoubtedly Wimbledon and the US Open, both of which aren’t set to take place for a few months. However with these two tournaments being as high profile as they are it is best to get your Wimbledon tickets and US Open tickets now before they go up in price or worse, sell out.
