The Western & Southern Open announced today the strongest lineup in the tournament’s 114-year history featuring the top 44 ranked men* and 35 of the top 36 ranked women* in the world, competing for more than $6 million in prize money.
The Western & Southern Open will be held August 10-18, 2013 at the Lindner Family Tennis Center, 20 miles north of Cincinnati in Mason, OH. It is the nation’s oldest professional tennis tournament still held in its original city. The tournament is one of the prestigious ATP Masters 1000 events on the men’s tour and a Premier 5 event for the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) – making it one of only five events in the world outside of the grand slams with events of that caliber occurring during the same week at the same venue. A recent study conducted by the University of Cincinnati concluded that the event generated $62.5 million in economic impact. The event is seen by more than 60 million people in 170 countries worldwide and is broadcast domestically on Tennis Channel, ESPN2 and CBS. The tournament is also one of the last stops on the Emirates Airline US Open Series prior to the US Open in New York. Since 1974, the tournament has contributed more than $8.7 million to beneficiaries Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, Barrett Cancer Center and Tennis for City Youth.
