Western and Southern Open History

The tournament started in 1899 as the Cincinnati Open and was held at the Avondale Athletic Club. Over the years it has had many names and has been hosted at a number of different venues. From 1903 until 1972, it was held at the Cincinnati Tennis Club. Then the following year it was hosted inside at the Cincinnati Convention Center. Moving the tournament in 1975 to the Coney Island amusement helped the event gain momentum again. In 1979, the tournament relocated to Mason where a permanent stadium was built and the surface was changed to hard court.

Roger Federer holds the title for most men's singles titles with five. And, the most consecutive men's singles titles were awarded to Beals Wright, Raymond D. Little, Robert Leroy and Bobby Riggs - all with three. Ruth Sanders Cordes and Clara Louise Zinke both have five for the most women's singles titles. As for most consecutive women's singles titles Ruth Sanders Cordes, May Sutton and Clara Louise Zinke all have three. Most men's doubles titles go to Todd Woodbridge and Mark Woodforde with four, and Clara Louise Zinke holds six titles for most women's doubles titles. Most consecutive women's doubles titles go to Martha Kinsey and Clara Louise Zinke with four. Raymond D. Little holds the record for most men's titles with 11, and most women's titles record is held by Clara Louise Zinke with 12. You get the idea; there are some real top-notch athletes who are tearing up the courts.

The tournament is sponsored by Western & Southern Financial Group, and in 2009, the tennis tournament announced a $10 million upgrade to the facility, including the construction of a 52,000 square feet West Building to add space for players, media and of course, fans. The new building, which opened in 2010, is called the Paul M. Flory Player Center. The building is 85 feet above ground level and 97 feet above the court level. The Paul M. Flory Player Center is named in honor of Paul M. Flory, who was the tournament chairman from 1975 until he passed away on January 31, 2013. He began his involvement as a volunteer with the tournament in the late 1960s and donated millions of dollars to charity, including the Tennis for City Youth program, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center and the Charles M. Barrett Cancer Center at University Hospital. Flory was honored with the ATP's Arthur Ashe Humanitarian Award enshrinement in the USTA/Midwest Hall of Fame and the Cincinnati Tennis Hall of Fame and was named one of the Great Living Cincinnatians by the Cincinnati Chamber of Commerce.
