“South Florida by the numbers” is a web feature that catalogs the most notable, quirky and surprising real estate statistics. Since 1987, the Sony Open has brought the very best in tennis to Key Biscayne and shined an international spotlight on Miami. Along the way, the tournament has grown to become one of the sport’s most popular and highly-attended events, and many of its brightest stars have made South Florida their home. (Those who didn’t live here already, that is.) With the 2014 Sony Open underway this month, we proudly “serve” you this latest edition of South Florida by the numbers.
