Jul 12, 2018

Updated: July 12, 11:50 a.m.

Several former Western & Southern Open champions are coming back this summer.

Tournament organizers say the current list of entrants "includes all players in the Top 37 of the WTA (Women's Tennis Association) Rankings," such as Serena Williams, Karolina Pliskova and Garbiñe Muguruza, as well as reigning No. 1 Simona Halep.

The men's field includes seven-time champion Roger Federer, along with Rafael Nadal, Grigor Dimitrov, Marin Cilic, and Novak Djokovic.

In total, 56 women will compete in the WTA Premier 5 and 56 men will play in the ATP Masters 1000, which runs August 11-19 in Mason.

"This is a very strong field with all of the top WTA players having entered," says Tournament Director Andre Silva in a statement. "The past 18 months have really shown the depth of the WTA with so many different players coming through to win big titles."

On the men's side, there will be plenty of "young talent," organizers say.

"It is an intriguing time on the tour as these younger players are pushing to make their breakthroughs at the bigger events, but the veteran players are not ready yet to give up their status at the top," Silva says.
