Miami Gardens, FL (February 22, 2022) – The 2022 Miami Open presented by Itaú will once again host the world’s greatest players at Hard Rock Stadium, March 21 – April 3. The iconic tennis and entertainment festival returns with the energy and excitement that has long made it the place to be in March.

The Miami Open received the initial entry lists from the ATP and WTA tours, and the current entries have Grand Slam-level talent including 18 players with a combined 71 career Grand Slam singles titles. Overall, 73 of the top 75 ranked men and 73 of the top 75 ranked women, are entered to compete in Miami.

Defending men’s champion Hubert Hurkacz returns and will have to navigate a stellar list of initial entries to retain his title including reigning US Open champion and current World No. 2 Daniil Medvedev, Olympic Gold Medalist Alexander Zverev, World No. 4 Stefanos Tsitsipas and World No. 5 Rafael Nadal.

Overall, the entry list received boasts several former Grand Slam champions including Marin Cilic, Dominic Thiem, and wildcard entry Andy Murray.

Some of the young players looking to make their mark in 2022 include World No. 9 Felix Auger-Aliassime who won his first career singles title earlier this month in Rotterdam and 18-year-old Carlos Alcaraz who became the youngest player to win an ATP 500 level event last week in Rio. Last year’s Miami Open finalist and current World No. 10 Jannik Sinner will be looking to go one step further and claim his first ATP Masters 1000 title in Miami.

In addition to the entry list, the Miami Open has announced it has granted main draw wildcards to three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray and Australian superstar Nick Kyrgios.

The impressive women’s entry list is led by reigning Australian Open and two-time defending Miami Open champion Ashleigh Barty. If the World No. 1 is to win her third consecutive Miami title, she will have to work her way though a field featuring 12 Grand Slam champions including reigning US Open champion Emma Raducanu and current French Open champion Barbora Krejcikova.

The list of former Grand Slam champions that will compete this year is extensive including Iga Swiatek, Garbine Muguruza, Jelena Ostapenko, Victoria Azarenka, Angelique Kerber, Petra Kvitova, Simona Halep, Sloane Stephens and Miami Open wildcard entry Naomi Osaka.

Many superstars of the future will be on display with the likes of US Open finalist Leylah Fernandez, 17-year-old Coco Gauff and 20-year-old Amanda Anisimova scheduled to compete.
