by ATP Staff|
As part of the ATP Heritage Award Programme, a number of award presentations and celebratory events have been taking place throughout the 2014 ATP World Tour season for both tournaments and players.
On Friday night in Cincinnati, ATP Americas Tournament Board Representative Gavin Forbes presented Western & Southern Open CEO Elaine Bruening with a 25-year Heritage commemorative trophy.
The event is the nation's oldest professional tennis tournament played in its city of origin, dating back to 1899. In the 40-year history of the Emirates ATP Rankings, only nine Cincinnati champions have been ranked outside the Top 10, including only four since 1980. Additionally, 54 members of the International Tennis Hall of Fame have played in the tournament and 15 of the 25 players to ascend to World No. 1 have emerged victorious, including Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.
