Why is the women's event in Cincinnati not part of the US Open Series?

It doesn't make sense to me. Is it because it doesn't have a big enough purse?

it's a tier III and the US Open Series is inclusive to tier I and II events only, but in my opinion, they should change it to a tier II

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.

The Flory brothers (who own it) already have Masters status with the ATP for Cincy. According to Cronin's story on Carlsbad (aka San Diego) ending in a year and selling its Tier I rights, these guys will likely buy that. (And Tier II's will be eliminated anyhow).
