Just like on the ATP side, the 2016 Miami Open will be the 32nd edition of the WTA competition. The reigning champion is Serena Williams, who seems to be in a bit of a trouble at the moment, at least as far as winning the big matches in 2016.
Not only she lost the Australian Open final to the German Angelique Kerber but she looked disoriented and totally hopeless in the Indian Wells final against Victoria Azarenka. The Belarusian had a previous 3-17 record against the American but that did not show during Sunday's final which Azarenka won 6-4, 6-4. Williams did not seem to be in her fittest form which could mean that she will withdraw from Miami but so far there aren't any info on this. Regardless, since the American has a tendency to do it (happened on several occasions), we still cannot be sure about her participation. If she competes, the top eight seeds will follow as: 1. Williams, 2. Angelique Kerber, 3. Agnieszka Radwanska, 4. Garbine Muguruza, 5. Simona Halep, 6. Carla Suarez Navarro, 7. Belinda Bencic, 8. Petra Kvitova. If she is indeed in the draw, the eight-time champion Williams will be the biggest favorite to go all the way.
Despite her recent struggles in big matches, she has won a record eight times here, not to mention winning the last three editions.

The 2014 WTA Sony Open Tennis will be played for the women from March 17 and it's a Premier Mandatory tournament on the WTA Tour. It will be held at Crandon Park in Miami and will be played outdoor hard courts.
The women's singles winner takes home a total of 1000 points while the runner-up will win 650 points. Semi-finalists and quarter-finals will be awarded 390 and 215 points respectively.
Serena Williams will enter the tournament as the favourite, being the world number one and the defending champion to do that. What will also work in her favour is the fact that she did not participate in the Indian Wells Masters last two weeks, allowing her a break and to analyse the game of her opponents in this tournament.
Also participating in the tournament will be the second seeded Li Na, who was blown away in the semi-finals of the Indian Wells Masters, while Indian Wells finalist Agnieszka Radwanska will also be a part. Maria Sharapova has been seeded fourth, now that Victoria Azarenka has withdrawn from the tournament because of her fitness woes, with the likes of Angelique Kerber, Simona Halep and Jelena Jankovic behind her.
Some of the other players in action during the two-week long tournament are Petra Kvitova, Sara Errani, Dominika Cibulkova and Caroline Wozniacki, apart from crowd favourites Ana Ivanovic and Eugenie Bouchard.
