    The Western & Southern Open is the nation'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.

    Serena Williams displayed power, purpose, and poise; while easily dispatching Karin Knapp in less than an hour. All eyes will be on Center Court at the Western & Southern Open today, as Serena heads into the quarterfinals to face rival, Ana Ivanovic.
