Around the Grounds
Thursday August 15
Thanks to our fans, we have another sold out day today at the Lindner Family Tennis Center. In fact, the rest of the sessions through the weekend are sold out. Make sure you come out early, whatever session you have, to get a great place to park and enjoy the music and food before your matches start.
The Western & Southern Open every year sets one day aside to thank members of the USTA, and today was the day for USTA Member Appreciation Day. Members enjoyed lunch and had the opportunity to get their photos taken with the Rookwood championship trophy! Thanks to all our USTA members who do so much to help make this tournament run so smoothly.
Tonight there’s more world class tennis as Rafael Nadal and Serena Williams take Center Court. Before that, make sure you take in the music of Erin Locke & The Tumblers until 7 p.m., then after that is’ Rattlesnakin’ Daddies.
And don’t forget to stop by the Moet & Chandon champagne bar on the east side of Center Court and toast your favorite player’s victory. Check out the specially commissioned Western & Southern Open Moet bottle. It’s a limited edition and would be a great addition to your collection!
