With over $10 million in prize money at stake, the 2015 battle is set to take place at the newly renovated Crandon Park Tennis Center that now features landscaped greens and a host of new park facilities. However, it’s not just tennis that’s earned this first-class sporting event the ‘most glamorous stop on the tour’ tag.

While individual session tickets begin at $31 and packages at $136, the Collectors Club, Champions Club and Suites cater to the discerning.
