Dolphins Owner Stephen Ross Interested In Miami Open At Hard Rock Stadium


TO STAY IN THE COMMUNITIES THAT
SUPPORTING THEM UNTIL ALL
OPTIONS ARE EXHAUSTED.
AND WHILE HE IS OUT AT THE
NFL OWNERS MEETING THE DOLPHINS
OWNER IS MAKING HEADLINES FOR A
SUGGESTION ABOUT ANOTHER SPORT
TENNIS.
HE WANTS TO SEE THE
TOURNAMENT MOVED FROM KEY
BISCAYNE TO HARD ROCK STADIUM.
MIKE CUGNO IS LIVE AT THE MIAMI
OPEN WITH THE REACTION TO THE
NEWS HI MIKE.
HEY, FOR YEARS THERE’S
SPECULATION IF THE MIAMI OPEN
COULD STAY HERE ON KEY BISCAYNE
BUT IF THERE’S ANYONE AMBITIOUS
ENOUGH TO KEEP IT HERE IT’S
STEVEN ROSS CAN’T FORGET ABOUT
THE STADIUM RENOVATION AND
BRINGING EL CLASSICO TO MIAMI.
HE MAY THE SAVIOR TO KEEP THE
SPORT HERE.
KEY BISCAYNE IS THE BACKDROP TO
THE MIAMI OPEN SINCE 1995.
UNLESS THEY CAN SCORE PRIVATE
FUNDING FOR RENOVATIONS, THE
COURTS MAY GO QUIET.
FOUNDER A FORMER DIRECTOR OF
THE TOURNAMENT LEAVES IT NEEDS
TO STAY IN MIAMI.
A TREMENDOUS ASSET AND
ECONOMIC IMPACT FOR THE
COMMUNITY IS OVER 300 MILLION,
AND TO TAKE THAT AWAY, THERE’S
JUST NOT IN THE BEST INTEREST
OF THE COUNTY AND IN THE BEST
INTEREST OF THE CITIZENS OF
DADE COUNTY.
Reporter: THE PATHLY WHICH
OWNS THE LAND CONTINUES TO DENY
— THE FAMILY WHICH OWNS THE
LAND CONTINUES TO DENY
EXPANSION.
BUT STEVEN ROSS MET WITH MIAMI
EXECUTIVES TO MOVE THE
TOURNAMENT TO HARD ROCK
STADIUM.
OFFICIALS SAY THEY WOULDN’T
COMMENT BUT ROSS SAYS IN A
STATEMENT I WOULD CONTINUE TO
EXPLORE IT IF IT MEANS KEEPING
THE TOURNAMENT IN MIAMI.
THE PLAN WOULD REPORTEDLY
INCLUDE TENNIS COMPLEX AND
HOSPITALITY AREA WHICH COULD BE
USED FOR OTHER STADIUM EVENTS.
I AM READING IN THE PAPER
THAT THERE’S ANOTHER
ALTERNATIVE WHICH WOULD BE
FINE.
STEVE ROSS DOES THINGS IN A
FIRST CLASS WAY AND IT WILL BE
A FIRST CLASS FACILITY.
Reporter: MORE THAN 300,000
FANS ATTEND THE MIAMI OPEN EACH
YEAR AND PLAYERS OFTEN REFER TO
IT AS A 5th GRAND SLAM.
TAKING IT AWAY IS NOT SOMETHING
THEY WOULD BE CHEERING ON ANY
TIME SOON.
IT’S IMPORTANT FOR US FOR
OUR TOUR TO HAVE THAT– THE
MOST IMPORTANT EVENT IN
RELEVANCY.
I UNDERSTAND IT’S HARD TO
EXPAND HERE AND THAT’S A ISSUE
IF YOU LOOK AT HOW MUCH THE
EXPANSIONS ARE APING IN OTHER
PLACES OF GRAND SLAMS BUT
NEVERTHELESS, LOOK– ARE
HAPPENING IN OTHER PLACES OF
GRAND SLAMS BUT NEVERTHELESS
THEY ROMAINE POSITIVE ABOUT THE
EVENT.
Reporter: NOW THE RUNNER OF
THE EVENT HAD A 50 MILLION
DOLLAR PROPOSAL BUT THE POWERS
THAT ABOUT WITHIN THE MATHISON
FAMILY SAID NO AND SO DID A
APPEALS COURT.
SO THEY ARE WAITING AND SEEING
BUT THEY SAY THEY ARE CONFIDENT
THEY WILL BE ABLE TO KEEP IT ON
COBISCAYNE.
IT COULD BE A MORE BEAUTIFUL
BACKDROP.
AND A GREAT YOU KNOW TO BE
ABLE TO WATCH TENNIS IN A NICE
SORT OF CLOSED STADIUM WHERE
PEOPLE CAN BE UP WHERE THE
ACTION IS YOU SAID THEY WOULD
MOVE IT TO NEAR HARD ROCK
STADIUM BUT BUILD TENNIS ONLY
OR TENNIS FACILITY?
Reporter: RIGHT.
THE IDEA WOULD BE REPORTED EYE
DA IS HAVE A GRANDSTAND NEXT TO
HARD ROCK STADIUM AND MAINLY
MATCHES WITHIN THE BIG
STAWEDIUM ITSELF.
VERY COOL.
ALL RIGHT.
GRAB ONE THOSE NICE COMFORTABLE
WHITE CHAIRS AND RELAX AND —
