History The Cincinnati Masters started on September 18, 1899. It is the oldest tennis tournament in the United States played in its original city. In August 2008, the tournament was sold to the United States Association, which is also the owner of the US Open. The Western and Southern Financial Group sponsored the event for the first time in 2002. The company continued its sponsorship until now. The Western and Southern Open 2019 will be the 120th edition of the tournament.
