Miami Open Grandstand seating map for 2021 displaying Topnotch Tennis Tours ticket locations in sections 7, 11, and 17Where will my seats be located?

This year the main court in Miami is going to be the much more intimate Grandstand Court.  It is considerably smaller than the Hard Rock Stadium witt the top row on the court being row 24.  So imagine, the worst seat in the Grandstand would be equivalent to a courtside seat at the US Open! In a normal year the stadium holds around 5,000 people, but this year the tournament is allocating approximately 750 seats (and we've got some!).  We have excellent Grandstand seats located in the baseline corner sections.

Court 1 will have day sessions only, but this means there will be play on that court into the evening. So basically, you're getting day and night sessions for the price of one. If you want to pack in the most tennis for a single session, Court 1 is where it's at. All seats are on the west side of the court.

What if it rains?

Unfortunately, all courts at the Miami Open are at the mercy of the weather, and matches may be delayed due to rain. If matches are cancelled due to weather or other reasons, seat privileges are lost for that day. No rain checks will be issued. Travel insurance is an option and our invoices are recognized by providers. However, we recommend being very thorough in your understanding what they will and will not cover. Additionally, GSTT Trip Protection is available, which gives you the flexibility to cancel your trip for any reason up to two weeks before the event start date. Check out the full details of our Trip Protection in our Booking Policy.

What time is Serena playing next year?

Great question and one we receive often. The draw is only released a few days before the tournament, and the order of play is only published the evening before the match. So, if there’s a specific player you’d like to see, we can usually predict which tickets you’ll need to see him or her. However, we can't know the exact time and court until the day before the match.

Is airfare included?

Airfare is not included in the package pricing. We wrote a blog post on how to book your own flights, since it’s the easiest and cheapest way to get your airfare. But if you’d like us to help you with your flights, we’d be glad to do so.

What is the clear bag policy?

Hard Rock Stadium has instituted a safety policy for all stadiums that will make the security process more efficient and effective. The safety policy affects the type and size of bags that are permitted into the stadium — not the items that fans normally need to bring to a game or event. Guests may continue to carry pockets items such as keys, makeup, combs, phones, wallets and credit cards. See the full policy here.

Below are the stadium-approved bags fans may carry into the stadium:

  • One bag that is clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and does not exceed 12” by 6” and 12” or a one-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc bag or similar).
  • In addition to one of the clear bags noted above, fans may also carry in a small clutch bag or purse approximately the size of a hand, with or without a handle or strap.
  • An exception will be made for medically necessary items after proper inspection at Gate E designated for this purpose.
  • Diapers and wipes can be carried in a clear bag. Each member of a family, including children, will be able to carry and approved clear bag and a clutch purse, providing ample storage capacity.
