Night On The Runway
Fashion and tennis have always gone hand and hand but at the Western & Southern Open on Wednesday, fashion is part of the schedule, along with the Number One seeds in another busy day at the tournament.
First, to the tennis, where women’s top seed Agnieszka Radwanska starts the action on Center Court against Sofia Arvidsson. Radwanska is 1-0 career against Arvidsson. Right after that match, Second seed Novak Djokovic opens play with Andreas Seppi, while Mardy Fish starts play at the Grandstand against Carlos Berlocq.
Later in the day Venus Williams is on the Grandstand facing Chanelle Scheepers , and following that match Caroline Wozniacki goes against qualifier Sesil Karatantcheva. Of course the full Order of Play, along with the practice schedule, is on and on your mobile device at
Now to the fashion part of the day, where the annual Night on the Runway mixes tennis fans with fashion as Saks Fifth Avenue and Lafayette 148 show off the latest for fall. The event is sold out, so if you have your tickets make sure you arrive early to get a great seat, then stick around for the evening session featuring top men’s seed Roger Federer.
And on Thursday, if you are a USTA member, it’s your day! USTA members are invited to visit the hospitality tent, have your photo taken with the W&S trophy and enjoy world class tennis. Don’t forget to stop by!
