Tennis: Rain again spoils Miami Open party, wiping out play

Action at the 2019 Miami Open is underway and a former champion in Victoria Azarenka remains in the mix.

"She's a big fighter", Azarenka said of her opponent she's played many times over the course of her career.

The former world number one, also a victor in south Florida in 2009 and 2011, needed three sets and two hours and 31 minutes to defeat Cibulkova 6-2 3-6 6-4, hitting 41 winners in a testing encounter.

During the ceremony, tennis fans will have the chance to see the likes of Roger Federer, Naomi Osaka, Serena Williams, and Novak Djokovic.

There wasn't much bustle at the new-look Miami Open on the initial day of scheduled main-draw play, which was completely wiped out because of rain throughout Tuesday. It's incredible stadium. As I said, the facilities are fantastic, and I hope this tournament is only going to grow.

Azarenka, since coming back from having a baby, made her best tournament run a year ago in Miami reaching the semifinals. Williams, a part-owner of the Dolphins, likes that she lives near the new tournament location.

"She's a very talented player".

Osaka, the top women's player, thought the idea was interesting when she first heard the tournament was moving.

Two-time grand slam champion Azarenka outlasted Dominika Cibulkova before rain wreaked havoc again in Miami midweek.

Much like the past two weeks when the Indian Wells Masters was broadcast live on Amazon Prime Video, this second Masters of the year, at Miami will also be shown live with the same live streaming partner of the ATP for United Kingdom viewers.

The live coverage will be available from every court in which there are cameras, replays would be available within a few minutes of the match getting over and highlights following day.
