The Western & Southern Open set an attendance record by drawing 191,752 fans over 16 sessions to the Lindner Family Tennis Center in Mason. 

In addition to the total week mark, records were also set for single session (14,336 for the Wednesday day session) and single day (25,686 for Wednesday's combined attendance). 

"It is a great pleasure for us to host not only the best tennis players in the world, but some of the greatest fans in the sport," said tournament director Vince Cicero. "These fans come out early for practices, move around between all 16 of our courts, and immerse themselves in the experience of attending the Western & Southern Open. It is gratifying to see our efforts to make this a fan-friendly event rewarded with attendance numbers like this."

This year's total attendance surpasses the previous record of 187,183, which was set last year. The previous record for a single session was 13,704, which was set with the Wednesday day session in 2013. Wednesday in 2013 was also the previous record for single-day attendance with 25,155. 

Roger Federer won a record sixth Western & Southern Open to claim the 2014 men's singles title while World No. 1 Serena Williams claimed the women's singles titles. Twins Bob and Mike Bryan claimed their fifth Cincinnati men's doubles title while Americans Raquel Kops-Jones and Abigail Spears won the women's doubles title.
