Western & Southern Open
The Western & Southern Open is the USA’s oldest professional tennis tournament played in its city of origin. First played in 1899 on the site of current day Xavier University, the Open has been a fixture in the Queen City for more than a century. The champions list reads like a who’s who of tennis greats, with more than 100 International Tennis Hall of Famers having played in Cincinnati over the years. Novak Djokovic beat Roger Federer in the 2018 final to capture his first title at the Western & Southern Open. The win means the Serb is the first singles player in the Open era to win all nine ATP Tour Masters 1000 titles. And in 2019, it was the turn of Daniil Medvedev, who claimed his first ATP Masters 1000 title, beating Novak Djokovic en-route to the final, before dispatching David Goffin in the showpiece itself.
