In South Florida, sun never sets on tennis

Postcard From Spring Training

March 22, 2007|By PETER SCHMUCK

The coolest sporting event in South Florida this week is the Sony Ericsson Open, the popular pro tennis event in Key Biscayne. The tournament has been spiced up this year with something called Night Tennis, which is basically a glitzy downtown exhibition that features players in glow-in-the-dark clothing competing under black lights on a court that will open up to an all-night party that is free to the public tonight and tomorrow.

The tournament is no slouch either, featuring just about every big name in professional tennis.

Just my luck. Maria Sharapova is in town, and all my best aloha shirts are still at the dry cleaner.
