There were an incredible 52 Grand Slams “on display” at the Miami Grand Prix on Sunday as tennis royalty Roger Federer, Serena Williams, Venus Williams, Juan Martin del Potro and Gabriela Sabatini graced the Formula 1 grid.

This year marked the second edition of the F1 race at the purpose-built temporary Miami International Autodrome around the Hard Rock Stadium and the stars were once again out in full force.

Tennis was well represented as Federer, the Williams sisters, Del Potro and Sabatini were all big hits ahead of the race.

Between the five, they have won 52 majors with Serena topping the list with 23 and followed by Federer (20), Venus (7), Del Potro (1) and Sabatini (1).

It has been a busy couple of days for Federer and Serena as they also attended the Met Gala in New York last week with Williams also using the showbiz event to announce she is expecting her second child.

The whole Federer clan attended the Miami race as the tennis great’s wife, Mirka, twin daughters Myla and Charlene, and twin sons Lenny and Leo were also on the grid.

“It is my third time [at a Formula 1 race],” Federer, who also met up with the Jonas Brothers on the grid, said. “I’ve been to Abu Dhabi at the big race when it was [Lewis] Hamilton and [Nico] Rosberg [battling] at the time and then I did Barcelona qualifying last year, which I really enjoyed as well. It was a little bit more relaxed away from the big race.

“And now here, it is great to be back finally having time to do this.”

Serena and Venus Williams, of course, are no strangers to Formula 1 races as they regularly attended races and they also met up with Federer before the lights went out.

2009 US Open champion Del Potro also had a chat with Federer and there were lot of hugs and “great to see you again” comments between the two.

Del Potro’s fellow Argentine Sabatini, who won the 1990 US Open and reached a career-high No 3 in the WTA Rankings, was also in attendance as she spent some time with the Alpine team and, naturally, also caught up with her compartiot as well as the Federer family.
