Classic Miami Condos Perfect for Tennis Players

Classic Miami Condos Perfect for Tennis Players

Sep 29, 2020 September 29, 2020

Miami's love affair with tennis dates way back to the 1980s when the Miami Open first started being hosted at Crandon Park in Key Biscayne. Celebrated as the largest tennis tournament outside the four Grand Slams, the Open series has given fans the chance to watch the court legends of Andre Agassi, Chris Evert, Steffi Graff, Pete Sampras, Roger Federer, Monica Seles, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray, Venus Williams, Serena Williams, Vika Azarenka, and many more over the decades to the Magic City.

Charmed by our gorgeous beaches, great art, international culture, world-class entertainment options, fabulous food and restaurants, and fantastic year-round weather (especially good for tennis practice in the winters), some of these tennis pros decided to stick around and call Miami home. Our current list of tennis star residents includes Novak Djokovic (Eighty Seven Park), Caroline Wozniacki (Palazzo del Sol), Anna Kournikova (Bay Point Estate), Mary Joe Fernández (Pinecrest) and counting.

With so many tennis champions and stars visiting and owning homes over the years, it's no wonder Miami has a strong demand for tennis. And, these classic Miami condo buildings were some of the first to make Miami residents and tennis players have some of the finest facilities and residences to come home to. While most of these condos were built before 2000, they are some of the most well established condo buildings Miami has.

Here's visiting the Top 7 Classic Miami Condos that offer great value for Tennis Players of every caliber:
