The two-week Miami Open 2019 came and conquered the Magic City, debuting for the first time ever at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium. This year, the legendary Roger Federer claimed the winner’s title after defeating John Isner in the Men’s Singles Final, with a 6-1, 6-4 win. The win marks Federer’s fourth win in the Miami Open, and his 101st career singles’ title.

The former Haute Living cover star came to the match with a game plan ready to win, which he executed to perfection. He neutralized Isner’s signature big serve by punishing his weaker backhand, with steady finesse and maintaining his stamina throughout the match. Isner, who suffered a foot injury that had him hobbling around the court during the second set, knew his time was done in the tournament, but he still powered his way through to the end, with Federer emerging victorious.

For women’s, the Australian-born Ashleigh Barty took home the big win, defeating Karolina Pliskova 6-3,6-3. The win was extraordinarily significant for the athlete, as it marks her officially making it in the top 10 female tennis players in both singles and doubles—a feat that only a handful of tennis legends have accomplished, such as the Williams sisters and Anna Kournikova. Barty is currently ranked as the No. 9 female tennis player in the world in singles and doubles.

It was an exciting day at Hard Rock Stadium as the two victors celebrated the big win in the massive stadium for the first time ever. Leaving its former Key Biscayne home was a big move for the tournament, but it brought with it many new exciting changes to the Miami Open, debuting a more luxurious and heavily programmed lineup throughout its two-week period. Guests enjoyed private box suite viewing with big tournament sponsors like Emirates, coveted courtside seats to watch all the action up close, and a mouth-watering lineup of culinary offerings, such as the Casa Tua courtside lounge, Casa Tua Cucina pop-up, Kiki on the River pop-up and so much more.

At the culmination of the big event, fans swarmed the stadium cheering on Federer. The star athlete celebrated by toasting with a glass of Moët Champagne and giving a warm thank you to the Miami fans and the tournament, praising the new stadium and looking forward to returning again next year. Coming out 101 titles later, defying all sports norms, like a fine wine Federer keeps getting better with age.
