Cincinnati are expanding their site to include over 5 new acres of facilities.

Among the improvements in this phase, planned to be completed by
the first day of next year’s combined event, which kicks off August 13,
2011:


  • Six new courts
  • One court with a seating capacity of 4,000 that will serve as a third television court for the 2011 combined event
  • One court with a capacity of 2,500
  • Four additional courts
  • A 2,750-square-foot enclosed ticket office
  • A 10,000-square-foot entry plaza with a 30-foot by 60-foot canopy and 9 gates
The new footprint of the Tennis Center will span 19.0 acres, up
from 13.6 acres in 2010. The expansion will stretch to the North and
East of the current grounds.

According to the ATP, Cincinnati are the biggest event in the USA outside of the US Open, so why are they doing this.

"With the tournament planning to host the men and women simultaneously
in 2011, this expansion is necessary to accommodate the increase in
tennis and attendance expected at the combined event," said Ken Berry,
president of Tennis for Charity.

Tennis for Charity owns the land and
leases the facility to the tournament.

For an artists impression of the plans......

I wrote a piece early on for V2 about the FO dying on its own umbilical cord. Since this venue has no real options to expand its ground area, being so close in proximity to urban developments, they are in danger of being superseded by other events who may take the plunge, like Cincinnati, and take the crown from them, purely by the pull of prizemoney and event celebrity. Yes they have the tradition and history, but in the end, if an event comes along and injects the same kind of enthusiasm and dollars into a clay tournament, and they actually become bigger than RG, who's to say they won't lose their slam status. (http://www.606v2.com/t1014-roland-garros-4th-slam)

But for the players, Cincinnati is showing itself to be forward thinking and this in itself will make their life there a much more rewarding experience in an event penultimate to the US Open.

After Canada I really hope that Andy, Rafa & Federer find some form for this tournament.

Not that I dislike Novak but watching him playing becomes tedious without the lack of variety which the others bring to the game.

An improving sort of performance from Andy so far but still not into his stride. Still a win here is vital.

Much better second set performance from Andy and he beats David Nalbandian comfortably in the end 6-4 6-1. Well done Andy - onwards and upwards.

It took him time to get into his stride today. However, I really get the impression that Andy now saves his best for slam events whereas in the early years of his career he'd bust a gut in every Masters match. Anyone else think this?

Looks like Tsonga may be on the way out and I wonder if Andy will have his opponents number this time around!

Well Andy will play Alex Bogomolov jr.(USA) today (4-00pm GMT) after he managed too beat Tsonga yesterday.

Bogomolov to date has no career titles and is ranked at No.50

However he has already beaten Andy this year in Miami and was able to dismiss Tsonga who in turn knocked out Federer at Wimbledon this year so we shouldn't underestimate this man.

I can't (hope) see Andy playing as badly as his last encounter with him going down 6 - 1 in the first set, and providing he can find his "A" game this should be a straight forward win for him.

So all aboard the "Murray- Coaster" for another ride Cool

Andy Murray comes through 6-2 7-5 in a topsy turvy sort of match. Andy was in form control of the first set and was never really in danger and he threatened to run away with the second set early on but threw away an early break and seemed to get frustrated with himself but he battled through a sticky spell to win in straight sets. Must say I was pretty impressed with his opponent and I expect to see him climb further in the rankings.

Now into the Quarter-Finals it now means he has defended the points he won here last year and if he progresses further he will be adding more points into the bank. Very Happy

Andy now through to the Q/F's and a meeting with Gilles Simon.

Andy has won his last five encounters with Gilles and on paper this should be a straight forward victory albeit it may go to three sets.

Play will start at 4-00pm GMT

Andy will be looking to continue his gradual improvement in Cincinnati against Gilles Simon. It could go the distance but I'd still back Andy to win through.
