For the first time ever, the Western & Southern Open—one of the nation's oldest professional tennis tournaments still played in its city of origin—will host top-tier men's and women's matches during the week of August 13–21. Two single session tickets offer up 300-level seating to the first rounds of session 5 held at the Lindner Family Tennis Center, a venue stocked with three televised match courts and nets containing snap-happy lobsters. Live music, food vendors, and racket-slamming action captivate the crowd before announcers crown male and female winners. Past victors of the Western & Southern Open include John McEnroe, Pete Sampras, and an out-of-control tennis ball-launching machine.
