Touted as one of the most vital tennis competitions on the circuit, it forms a part of the US Open series. It is also a part of the Masters 1000 series on the ATP tour and is Premier 5 event on the WTA circuit.
Hosted in Cincinnati, Ohio each year, it holds the record for being the oldest tournament that is still played in the city it had originally begun. The first ever tournament was played in 1899. The forthcoming edition of the Cincinnati Masters will be played from August 11 in Cincinnati, Ohio.
The 2017 edition of the Cinci Masters was won by the Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov, who defeated the rising Aussie Nick Kyrgios in the final.
The tournament was a pretty intense one, but in the end, it was the young guns who prevailed.
Roger Federer, along with Kei Nishikori and Milos Raonic withdrew from the tournament owing to injury concerns (which was reasonable, given the season had taken its toll on their physical abilities).
Rafael Nadal was the only one left in the big four, who made it as far as the quarterfinal before succumbing to a strong Kyrgios.
Unarguably, this tournament is where the Aussie played his tennis of the season along with Dimitrov. The Bulgarian had won a couple of tournaments in 2017 on lower levels, but this is where he really hit his stride.
Dominic Thiem was another familiar name to pop in the final rounds, but he lost to David Ferrer. It is also worth mentioning that the 20 year old Australian Jared Donaldson too rose to the occasion in Cincinnati, giving one of the best performances of his career so far.
In the women’s half, it was the 23-year-old Spaniard Garbine Muguruza won the tournament by defeating Simona Halep in the final.
Having won the Wimbledon title a little over a month ago, it was quite impressive to see that kind of versatility from Muguruza. Not only did she prove her consistency by winning the titles, but by performing similarly on hard courts as well, she strengthened her position in the top five on the WTA Tour for 2017.
In Cincinnati, she defeated some of the most formidable players like Svetlana Kuznetsova and Karolina Pliskova. The tournament also featured other players such as Caroline Wozniacki, Agnieszka Radwanska, Elina Svitolina and Angelique Kerber.
