The Story

Before there was the Rose Bowl, before baseball’s first World Series, the first Indy 500, and decades before golf’s Masters, the best players in tennis came to Cincinnati, Ohio for a very special tournament.  

It was called the Cincinnati Open. 

The names have changed. The game has changed. But one thing remains: they still come to Cincinnati.  

The Cincinnati Open, a name cherished by both fans and players since its founding in 1899, stands as a testament to the rich history and evolution of tennis that’s woven into the fabric of the Cincinnati region.
