MIAMI, FL (March 19, 2013) — More than 1500 children from Miami-Dade and Broward county public schools descended on the Sony Open today for the annual Lindt Kids’ Day. The children participated in a tennis clinic and received encouraging words from WTA doubles’ team Abigail Spears and Raquel Kops-Jones; as well as James Blake, Christina McHale and former No. 1 Lleyton Hewitt.

At the conclusion of the day, the children were showered with goodies from Buddy Fruits, Head Penn and of course delicious Lindt Chocolates!
