2020 Western & Southern Open moves from Cincinnati to New York

CINCINNATI (JUNE 17, 2020) – Due to circumstances brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Western & Southern Open will be held in New York City at the USTA’s Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in 2020 and will now take place Aug. 20-28.
The ATP Masters 1000 and WTA Premier 5 event will be the first combined tournament hosting players from both circuits at a single venue since the tours suspended play in early March. The Western & Southern Open had originally been scheduled to take place Aug. 15-23 at the Lindner Family Tennis Center in Mason, Ohio.
Each Western & Southern Open draw will include 56 players in main draw singles, 32 teams in doubles and a qualifying field of 48 players. The entry guidelines and the deadline for player entries will be determined in conjunction with the WTA and ATP Tour in the coming weeks and will be announced at a later date. Spectators will not be permitted at the tournament.
“The international nature of tennis is one of its greatest assets. However, this international aspect also creates challenges in restarting the tour seasons,” said Western & Southern Open COO Katie Haas. “Last year, we hosted players representing 47 nations at the Western & Southern Open. With continued restrictions on international travel and quarantine guidelines, hosting multiple tournaments in a controlled environment with shared testing and medical resources at the National Tennis Center provides us the best chance to safely resume play for a combined event that is the size, scope and stature of the Western & Southern Open.
“While we will miss welcoming our fans and the players to Cincinnati, we are privileged to be the first tournament to bring both tours together for a combined event.”
The Western & Southern Open will utilize Grandstand Court at the National Tennis Center as its primary show court, with match play occurring on other outside courts. The US Open will follow the W&S Open at the facility and begin on Aug. 31.
“We will work with our partners at the USTA as well as both tours to stage the tournament in New York this year,” Haas said. “We will then quickly turn our attention to making preparations to welcome all our fans and the players back to Cincinnati for the Western & Southern Open in 2021.”
Patrons holding tickets for the 2020 tournament that were purchased directly from Western & Southern Open or Ticketmaster are eligible for a full refund. In addition, the holders of certain categories of tickets will be given an option to retain their seats for 2021. Full details on our 2020 ticket policy can be found at ;
This will mark the fifth time since the tournament began in 1899 that it has not been held in the Cincinnati area. Indianapolis hosted the event in 1914, 1917 and 1919, and in 1920 the tournament was held in Fort Wayne, Ind.
The 2021 Western & Southern Open is scheduled to take place Aug. 14-22, 2021 at the Lindner Family Tennis Center.

Ohio State Buckeyes Football has Davis, Fields and Wade selected as Walter Camp Preseason All-Americans

Wyatt Davis earns a spot on the first team, Justin Fields and Shaun Wade on the second team

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Three Ohio State Buckeyes were named to the Walter Camp Preseason All-America Team, announced on June 11 by The Walter Camp Football Foundation. Offensive guard Wyatt Davis made the fist team while quarterback Justin Fields and cornerback Shaun Wade were second team selections.

Wyatt Davis


Justin Fields

In all, 33 different schools from eight conferences are represented on the first and second teams with a total of 50 players selected.



Davis, from Bellflower, Calif., blossomed into one of the nation’s top interior linemen last season as a first-year starter. While paving the way for an offense that averaged 529.9 yards per game, Davis was voted a first team All-American by the Associated Press, CBS Sports and The Sporting News. He’s one of three returning starters along the offensive line for the 2020 Buckeyes.


Fields enjoyed one of the best statistical seasons in program history in 2019 as a first-year starter. The Kennesaw, Ga., native threw for 3,273 yards and 41 touchdowns with just three interceptions. He accounted for 51 total touchdowns and became the first player in Big Ten history with 40 passing TDs and 10 rushing TDs in the same season. In addition to being the Big Ten’s Offensive Player of the Year and Quarterback of the Year, Fields was also a finalist for the Heisman Trophy.

Shaun Lane


Wade, a rising fourth-year junior, is Ohio State’s most experienced returnee in the secondary, having played in 27 games over the last two seasons. A third team All-Big Ten selection in 2019, he had 26 tackles, four tackles-for-loss, one interception, two forced fumbles and eight pass breakups. As a redshirt freshman in 2018, he led the team with three interceptions.
