Miami Open at Hard Rock Stadium?

Dolphins Owner Stephen Ross exploring moving tournament

KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. – A Miami Dolphins source confirms that team owner Stephen Ross is looking into the idea of bringing the tournament near Hard Rock Stadium.

The team statement comes following a Miami Herald report stating that team reps were at the event last week and that Ross is considering building a tennis facility adjacent to the stadium. 

The report says the option of moving the tournament could become more viable if a continuing lawsuit made it impossible to upgrade the facilities on Key Biscayne.

A Dolphins' source tells Local 10 that the Fins "would continue to explore this if it meant keeping the tournament in Miami."
