The Morning Line
Tuesday, August 13, 2013
It’s the biggest, star-studded day at the Western & Southern Open so far this week, as the top seeds and top names in tennis take the court throughout the day.
Let’s start with the morning session when fans will be able to see tournament favorite Tommy Haas play on Court 3 against Kevin Anderson. Later during the day session, John Isner is on center court facing Florian Mayer.
Wild card American Ryan Harrison also plays in the day session, facing David Ferrer.
Night matches feature former Western & Southern Open winner Maria Sharapova against American Sloane Stephens and defending champion Roger Federer against Philipp Kohlschreiber.
Here’s the bonus feature of today though, as you can see the top five men practice this afternoon, starting at noon, on Court 5. At noon it’s Andy Murray, at 1:30 it’s Juan Martin del Potro, at 2:30 p.m. Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic at 4:30 and then at 5:30 p.m. it’s Roger Federer. All practice times are subject, of course, to change, but that’s the schedule as of right now. It’s a great time to see the top players in a more relaxed setting up close!
