Cincinnati Open Tennis Information
An ATP tournament for most of its history, Cincinnati welcomed a WTA stop in 2004, and then in 2011 it became a joint event, with the men’s and women’s tournaments going on at the same time.
Part of the Emirates Airline US Open Series, the event is held about 20 miles north of Cincinnati in Mason, Ohio, at the Lindner Family Tennis Center. It is the only tennis site in the nation outside of the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center to have four permanent stadiums – each of which has lights for night play.

Every fan finds a different day to his or her liking. For both the men and women, there are more matches earlier in the week and during day sessions. As the week progresses, the excitement builds as the field narrows and the players fight to win the coveted title.
There are no definite session-ending times, as all sessions last until the matches for that session are completed or the session is determined to be completed (due to rain or other circumstance).
In general, the sessions which start at 11 a.m. usually last until about 5 p.m., and the sessions which start at 3 p.m. or 7 p.m. usually last until approximately 11 p.m. Again, ending times are dependent on the length of the matches scheduled for that session.
You will need a ticket to attend each session. Please be prepared to present your ticket to the usher for entry to Center Court.
