The 2020 Western & Southern Open Won't be in Mason

( Mason, Ohio ) - Each year, the Western & Southern open gives the greater Cincinnati area a chance to be in the national spotlight when it comes to professional tennis, but the COVID-19 pandemic is causing a change to this year's tournament.

Instead of taking place at the Lindner Family Tennis Center in Mason where it is normally held, the 2020 W&S Open is being moved to the USTA's Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York.

A formal announcement is expected on Wednesday with more details about how the tournament will go forward and for those who originally purchased tickets: information on refund policies.
