Ashleigh Barty, Sofia Kenin, Serena Williams, Coco Gauff among star-studded Miami Open entry list

Ashleigh Barty

The Miami Open will once again have an impressive field with the likes of defending champion Ashleigh Barty, Sofia Kenin, Serena Williams and Coco Gauff all set to feature.

World No 1 Barty won the biggest title of her career at the time when she secured the title at Miami Gardens in March last year, but she outdid that a couple of months later when she lifted the trophy at Roland Garros.

The Australian will return to defend her title at Hard Rock Stadium from March 23-30.

Local heroine Kenin, who won her maiden Grand Slam when she beat Garbine Muguruza in the Australian Open final at the start of February, is also among the entrants.

Former world No 1 and 23-time major winner Williams will be gunning for an eighth Miami Open title with the last of her seven trophies coming in 2015.

Fellow WTA Tour stars Simon Halep, Karolina Pliskova, Bianca Andreescu and Naomi Osaka, to name just a few, are also in the draw.

Exciting teenager Gauff will also feature as the 15-year-old, who featured last year after accepting a wildcard, will also return as well as fellow American teenager Amanda Anisimova (18).
