Game, Set, Match: The Tennis Tournament to Watch

Rancho Valencia tennis

After months of working out indoors (thanks but no thanks to this never-ending winter), I’m more than ready for some outdoor activity. Topping my list? Hitting the tennis courts, of course. And this month, I’m feeling even more inspired to pick up a racket and serve away. Why? The Sony Ericsson Open. Below, peep the details on this must-watch tennis tourney.

What it is: The Sony Open features the top men’s and women’s tennis players in the world. Other than the four Grand Slam tournaments, this is one of the only events on the Association of Tennis Professionals calendar where the main singles draw involves more than 64 participants and extends beyond a week of play. It’s become a “see and be seen” destination – featuring high fashion, celeb-studded musical performances, and some seriously enviable shopping opportunities.

Who participates: Some of the biggest names in the tennis world – everyone from Andy Murray to Maria Sharapova and Serena Williams.

Where to watch: The 2013 Sony Open is happening now, March 18 – 31, in Miami.

Tickets are still available, but if you’re in for a different kind of escape, how about watching from the acclaimed California tennis resort, Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa? Who knows – after you work on that serve, maybe a spot in the Sony Open 2014 is in the cards.

Our Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa Boutique opens Tuesday, March 19, at 3PM ET. Both the men’s and women’s finals are broadcast live on CBS.
