    This may be old news, but I heard this is the last year for the WTA in Miami, is this true? I hope not, I've enjoy going down there the last 4 or 5 years and I would hate to see that happen.

    Did I get bad info?

    This is the last year that Sony Ericcson will be the main sponsor of the WTA tour but that is separate from the Sony Ericcson tournament in Key Biscayne. Actually, the Miami tournament has had a number of different sponsors over the years. It used to be known as the Lipton, then the Nasdaq and now the Sony Ericcson.

    I go every year with my family. It has a great atmosphere for hardcore tennis fans as well as for the casual fan.

    It would be better news if you only got ATP matches for your money.
