The 2015 Miami Open: A Twitter Recap

When you think of Miami, you may think of palm trees and art deco buildings; perhaps you think of tan-sunned men and women on the beach; heck, you may think of nothing other than “Miami Vice”. In sports, you’re probably more apt to immediately recall the Miami Heat (and LeBron James, still), and the University of Miami Hurricanes, or whatever action movie that Michael Mann has directed or produced in the last 20 years — but do you ever think of tennis?

Fortunately, Your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-M-, err, I mean, Senior Editor, me, Sandy Dover, had the opportunity to catch the 2015 Miami Open and capture the moods and sounds of the city. Hosted by New Balance, I was able to document to the top tennis players sponsored by the Boston-based brand, people like Milos Raonic and Heather Watson, train like the pros train, preview the new product, and be able to also capture the opening festivities that would break open the Open for the city from March 24-25 — and this was all seen through through the lens of Twitter.

See the sights and sounds!
