Roddick, Murray To Compete In Six-Player Miami Tennis Exhibition In Late November

Retired tennis player Andy Roddick is “one of six players scheduled to compete in the inaugural Miami Tennis Cup,” according to Michelle Kaufman of the MIAMI HERALD. The event will be “an exhibition tournament Nov. 30 through Dec. 2 at the Crandon Park Tennis Center," which hosts the ATP/WTA Sony Open. Andy Murray “will also participate, as will Spaniards Juan Carlos Ferrero and Nicolas Almagro, top-ranked American John Isner and Colombian Alejandro Falla.” The tournament format is “double-elimination and round-robin,” with each match best-of-three sets, and all matches will “take place on the stadium court, which will be transformed from purple and green to the first-ever white court with red lines and a blue surrounding area.” The “idea for the red, white and blue court is to commemorate the American flag.” The event is “being put on by Group NOS, an Argentine sports and entertainment promoter” (MIAMI HERALD, 10/17).
