One of the most anticipated tennis competitions of the year is upon us: the Miami Open will kick off at Hard Rock Stadium on March 22.

The second leg of the Sunshine Double is known for hosting the sports’ most high-profile players, but a few key athletes will be missing from the field this year. Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal won’t be competing, but eyes will be on U.S. Open champion Daniil Medvedev, alongside Stefanos Tsitsipas, Matteo Berrettini, Andrey Rublev and Carlos Alcaraz.

On the women’s side, the highest ranking player in the competition is Aryna Sabalenka, who is vying for the title against players such as Iga Swiatek, Maria Sakkari and Anett Kontaveit. Naomi Osaka and Emma Raducanu are also already in Miami, prepping for matches.

Tickets are currently available to the combined event, which runs through April 3. But there are also plenty of ways to stream the buzziest matches from home; the competition will be broadcast live on the Tennis Channel, available on streaming platforms such as Sling TV, Fubo TV and DirecTV. However, since the Tennis Channel is geo-restricted to the U.S, you might want to invest in a VPN if you’re planning on watching any of the games outside of the country (you can check out the best VPNs here).
