Combined Event. What's That?

Those that attended the event in 2010 probably heard news of some big changes coming to Cincinnati for the 2011 tournament. As a tournament that's been growing since 1899, we're used to change. But we realize that our fans want to know exactly what to expect next year.
 
The following cheat sheet is your guide to the changes in store for 2011. These three major tweaks represent more steps toward the Western & Southern Open becoming one of the largest and most fan-friendly tennis tournament in the world. Thanks for your support and we hope to see you in August.
