Miami Tournament

The Miami Tournament is played on hard courts like most other US tournaments. The event is held each year in March. The tournament was founded by former player Butch Buchholz. He originally wanted it to be the first grand slam of the year (the Australian was held in December then). He called in the "Winter Wimbledon." The first tournament was held in February 1985. The prize money was $1.8 million which Buchholz supplied. Now the prize money has grown to over $6 million.
