Miami Cup 2012

Tiriac should be envious. It's also good to see that the top players are putting the extra free weeks they have towards training and recuperation and are not getting involved into needless exhibitions.

U.S. Open champion and Olympic gold medalist Andy Murray and recently retired American Andy Roddick will play on a white court in an end-of-year exhibition event in Miami next month.

The pair will feature in the first edition of the Miami Cup, along with 2003 French Open winner Juan Carlos Ferrero, fellow Spaniard Nicolas Almagro, Colombian Alejandro Falla and top- ranked American, John Isner.

Roddick announced his retirement at the U.S. Open in August and is playing a series of farewell events.

The tournament will be held at Crandon Park, home to the annual Masters Series, Sony Ericsson Open and the stadium court will be transformed from it's usual purple and green color system to white with red lines, painted within blue surrounds.

Tennis is increasingly experimenting with new color schemes and the Madrid Masters this year was played on blue clay -- a move that was unpopular with some of the players.

The tournament will be held from Nov 30 through December 2.
