Serena Enters Cincinnati Tournament

Serena Williams returning for '07 Women's Open


Tuesday, April 03, 2007

Eight-time Grand Slam and recent Australian Open and Miami champion Serena Williams is expected to appear for a second consecutive year at the Western & Southern Financial Group Women's Open in Mason, the tournament announced Tuesday afternoon.

"I had a great experience in Cincinnati last summer, and I'm really looking forward to returning in hopes of winning the title," Williams said in a release. "The facility there is great and the fans are very enthusiastic, so I'm looking forward to coming back."

Williams, who is ranked No. 11, reached the Women's Open semifinals in 2006 in her first tournament appearance after a six-month absence from the WTA Tour. Her first-round match against former French Open champ Ana Myskina drew nearly 6,000 fans, the largest crowd ever to see a women's professional tennis match in Cincinnati history.

"Serena returning is a real endorsement for women's professional tennis in Cincinnati, and we're sure our fans will be very excited to see her," tournament director Bruce Flory said. "She played unbelievable tennis in winning the Australian Open in January and Miami last month. We are excited that she's included Cincinnati in her schedule this summer."

The main draw of the 2007 Women's Open will be held July 16-22 at the Lindner Family Tennis Center.

Re: Serena Enters Cincinnati Tournament

The sisters usually return where they enjoyed themselves. Serena must have really had a good time last year. I am sure the crowd was kind to her.

Re: Serena Enters Cincinnati Tournament

can't understand why she'd go there. it's a tier III tournament.

i hope she's planning on going to l.a. for the jpmorgan chase open this summer.

Re: Serena Enters Cincinnati Tournament

Soon it's going to be upgraded according to the WTA Roadmap so I think the WTA might be pressuring top players to play there this year to start getting buzz up for the tournament for future years.

Venus Williams-Ana Ivanovic-Serena Williams-Vika Azarenka-Caroline Wozniacki

McHale-Stephens-Watson-Robson-Townsend

Brodsky-Muhammad-Hampton-Keys-Crawford-Andrews-Hardebeck
