On Monday, March 20, CITI Taste of Tennis will once again return to Miami, and tennis fans and food lovers alike can’t wait to see what this year’s event has in store.
Taking place at the W Miami, this evening of food, fame, and A-list athletes will kick-off the Miami Open by pairing some of the world’s best tennis players with Miami’s best chefs. While the guests sip, snack, sway to the music, and mingle with some of their favorite star athletes–a list that (in the past) has included Serena Williams, Venus Williams, Caroline Wozniacki, and John Isner, to name a few–the chefs will whip up some of their best bites poolside. And to add a twist to their week, the tennis pros will even take a minute to Serve Up a little something off the court: food.
Headlining this year’s soirée is none other than famed tennis duo and twins, Bob and Mike “The Bryan Bros” Bryan, and James Beard Award-Winning Chef Michelle Bernstein. But those aren’t the only stars you’ll see! Read below for the full list of chefs and tennis pros you can drink and dine with at CITI Taste of Tennis 2017.
