There & Back: Cincinnati's Pro Tennis Tournament
Cincy’s venerable, 113-year-old event arrives annually as a cut-rate version of the U.S. Open.
In support of sister Serena Williams’ winning ways at Wimbledon over the past fortnight, Venus Williams viewed her matches from the Centre Court players box alongside parents Oracene Price and Richard Williams. Venus and Serena paired up to win the doubles championship after Serena seized the singles title. What’s more, Venus appeared at a few of Serena’s matches, including the July 7 final televised on ESPN, in her Indiana University East sweatshirt (pictured). The older of the two sisters is taking IU East courses through its online education program, and in the process, she’s giving the school a lot of positive national and international press.
