It’s another busy day at the Lindner Family Tennis Center as the Western & Southern Open moves out of the qualifying stage and into the men’s draw. The night session is highlighted by wild card and fan favorite Ryan Harrison facing Alexandr Dolgopolov from the Ukraine.
The day started with Wellington High School Day, where the pros and trainers from Wellington Sports were on hand with tips on playing the game injury-free. Skyline Chili served up lunch and kids were encouraged to stick around for the day session. It’s a unique opportunity to get great advice from the pros! Also, this reminder tonight is Kroger Family Night at the Western & Southern Open, with $8 off adult tickets and half price children’s tickets available.
And starting Monday, check out the Robert Mondavi Private Selection Wine Garden, near the west entrance to the Tennis Center, for demonstrations by some of the Cincinnati area’s most popular celebrity chefs. Each evening at 5:30 p.m. the chefs will demonstrate some of their signature dishes for you to try, and try at home. Check the list of chefs and their dishes at
