Roger Federer is about to start his run at the Miami Open, but this year things will be completely different after the tournament moved from the iconic island of Key Biscayne to the Hard Rock Stadium.
The Swiss legend participated in the ribbon-cutting ceremony, and now he is asked to draw the difference between the old and the new courts.
What’s the difference between the old and the new premises of the Miami Open
Roger doesn’t look entirely happy for the demise of Key Biscayne, but he embraces the new project. About the different conditions between the 2 premises, Roger commented
“I think it is going to be very much the same to Key Biscayne. The only thing is going to be hardly the same wind. Out of the island Key Biscayne, we always had wind. I think here it is going to be better and then because of the massive structure, the wind is going to travel over it.[Similarly to the US Open] we are not going to have much sun to affect play. So it reminds me of much the action at the US Open. You can play in better conditions throughout the event.”
