Around the Grounds: Day 5

Shaun Henry plays at the Lindner Family Tennis Center

Welcome to Wednesday’s edition of the Western & Southern Open here at the Lindner Family Tennis Center. Today’s lineup gives you matchups you won’t see this early in the week outside of the Grand Slams as former world number ones and Grand Slam champions take the court.

The action opens on Center Court with Andy Murray in his first match here in Mason, then right after that it’s Serena Williams versus Sam Stosur, and the day session ends on Center court with five-time W&S winner Roger Federer opening play.

Other stars taking the court today include Canadian star Eugenie Bouchard opening the night session against Svetlana Kuznetsova, and American favorite Robby Ginepri against another Canadian notable, Milos Raonic, on the Grandstand.

Off the courts, the Dayton International Airport Stage in the main food court features Buffalo Wabs at noon, Old Green Eyes at 5p and Hickory Robot at 7:15p. And remember, you’ll be able to see other performers in different locations outside the food court as well to keep you entertained during your visit.

And our nightly Celebrity Chef cooking demonstration in the Robert Mondavi Private Selection Wine Garden tonight features Todd Kelly from Orchids Palm Court.

Also this evening it’s the very popular Night on the Runway presented by Cincy Chic fashion show, 5:30-7 p.m. Tickets range from $30-60 per person, and tickets are still available for the night session. See you at the Western & Southern Open!
