But that won’t be the last of Serena who spent Monday morning breaking ground at the new Miami Open site—also known as the Miami Dolphins football stadium.  

Starting in 2019, the multi-purpose stadium, which recently went under a $500 million dollar renovation, will be transformed into a tennis arena to host the tournament that last approximately two weeks. 

There will be a total of 30 match courts and seating for more than 32,000 patrons.

Williams ironically has stake in the Miami Dolphins. 

‘She’ll probably be the first person to win a tennis tournament she owns,’ Dolphins majority owner Stephen Ross said jokingly in an interview with ESPN. 

But that’s not to say that Serena wasn’t disappointed to hear that the tournament was moving from its original venue—the Crandon Park Tennis Center in Key Biscayne.

‘When I heard they were going to move it, it literally broke my heart,’ she said to the sports media outlet. ‘I’m so happy this tournament is still going to be in Miami.’

The Michigan native has won the Miami Open a whopping eight times over the course of her career. 

‘I feel like Key Biscayne had some wonderful memories, especially for me, so many iconic moments (have) happened there,’ she told Local 10 News. ‘And now I feel like it’s time to start new memories and new moments, and I feel it’s going to be just as great.’
