Miami Open relocation hits speedbumps

As we wrote last week, the relocation of the Miami Open is hardly a done deal.

What was dismissed as a seemingly minor detail is officially a snag.

Per the Miami Herald, tournament VP Wendy Elkin left a meeting throwing out that old sports saw, “Be careful, we’ll move if we don’t get what we want.”

These commissioners are experienced with that.

The Herald reports the mayor’s office “only recently realized the county is several years behind in auditing the tournament’s finances.”

They want to leave the amount to be repaid, agreed to at $1.3 million, open for arbitration.
