Now an annual tradition, the August 9th Opening Night Ceremonies are a perfect blend of tennis and entertainment. This year, Mia Carruthers of MTV’s hit show Taking the Stage will be the feature performer kicking off the Western & Southern Financial Group Masters & Women’s Open. Other acts featuring the best talent from both the local and national stage will perform during the half hour event. More details will become available as artists and talent are booked.
Immediately following the ceremonies will be a marquee women’s match. In last year’s match, unseeded Kim Clijsters defeated 12-seed Marion Bartoli of France for her first of three victories at the Western & Southern Financial Group Women’s Open.
