Playing tennis is a lot like juggling at a royal court: if the man in the big chair gets pelted with a ball, you get thrown into a dungeon. Leave the entertaining to the pros with today's GrouponLive deal: for $36, you get two single-session tickets to the Western & Southern Open on Monday, August 15, at 7 p.m. at the Lindner Family Tennis Center in Mason (a $72 value). Gates open at 5 p.m.
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.
