As we say good-bye to Key Biscayne

Yeah, it was the birth place of the Fedal rivalry and start of the Dokodal rivalry. That is very special.
Also it's the first tournament where the Williams sisters met in a final. It had some good clashes with Pete and Andre, and it will always be the place of Djokovic's 1st Masters title.
Sad it had to end... :cry:
And Roddick's dominant H2H against Federer. ;)
o_O

Good riddance, Key Biscayne. :D

Much hotter wife too.

Much better press conferences.

Much less embarassing Slam H2H with both Djokovic and Nadal

Has served Nadal in face

Is actually humble
:-D I meant the only bragging right in their tennis careers. I love #3 though because it's true since he didn't play them that much in Slams.

Must have seen Agassi and Sampras 1995 about 20 million times. Nah, when the tennis ends early or cancelled because of rain they show old matches. Agassi and Sampras always seems to be the match.

Lets not forget that is the place where Nadal got his first win over Federer, Federer got his first win over Nadal, and Djokovic got his first win over Nadal.
Djokovic won his first ever Masters title in Key Biscayne (2007, beating Canas in the final). It was the last time a Masters final was played in best of 5 sets.

Nadal never did manage to win there despite making 5 finals (losing twice to Federer 2005,2017; twice to Djokovic 2011,2014 and once to Davydenko 2008).

Yep. That Fed-Kyrgios followed by another victory over Nadal was one of the most impressive moments of Federer in 2017. I really enjoyed the Federer-Kyrgios SF. GOAT Masters 1000 match of 2017.
Actually I was afraid even to see the final match, as I was more than sure that fed was completely drained in SF and would most likely get slaughtered by rafa.... But he still managed to score a win and that surprised me
 
And by the way, @Sport, isn't it really surprising that when fed was playing his best ever tennis in nearly 4.5 years, kyrgious pushed him to brink; but when he was playing the worst tennis of his career at USO 2018, kyrgious got smoked by rogi

Yes it is. Fortunately, Kyrgios also produced a good match against an in form Federer at 2018 Suttugart (that was probably the best Federer level of 2018 along with the AO).

Actually that match gave me a lot of hopes that IW-Mia losses were just flukes....
But sadly, fed's hand injury worsened after stuttgart, and his ball striking quality was considerably compromised up until shanghai atleast

However, I was extremely excited for fedrious match at USO18, was expecting fed to win in 3 tiebreaks if nothing else, but he literally smoked kyrgious... That was the last nail in the coffin that kyrgious has potential

I have been there two times, and the place was breathtaking. I am not sure how it will be at Dolphins venue, but at least will be tidier and with a lot more amenities. A Masters tournament with portable bathrooms was really shameful.
And impossible to forget the parking and then the buses to arrive to the place. Now you will park at the stadium and go directly to the courts.
Good memories there, long live Key Biscayne!

This was the best way to say goodbye to Key Biscayne. Servebot beating the Zedrot, nothing beats that moment, except Federer's heroics at Miami 2017.

Do I detect a touch of irony there? :cool:

As we say goodbye to a beautiful island venue right around the corner from South Beach...for a stadium parking lot in the suburbs...I promise I will never attend again. I already have my parking lot event in Cincinnati (but at least there's an amusement park across the highway)...
