All Top-20 players in both the ATP Tour and WTA Tour rankings have entered the event, which will be held Aug. 14-22. The field also includes 11 former Western and Southern Open champions, including defending champions Novak Djokovic and Victoria Azarenka, both two-time Western & Southern Open winners.

Cincinnati will welcome five former champions on the WTA side: this year’s Wimbledon runner-up Karolina Pliskova (2016), two-time Slam champion Garbiñe Muguruza (2017) and former US Open runner-up Madison Keys (2019) along with 23-time major champion Serena Williams and Azarenka, who are each two-time winners in Cincinnati.


Two-time champion Djokovic leads the list of returning champions on the men's side. He is joined by Daniil Medvedev (2019), Rafael Nadal (2013), Grigor Dimitrov (2017), Marin Cilic (2016) and seven-time champion Roger Federer.

The women’s field is also highlighted by 13 total Major champions (there are six on the men's side). Additionally, 10 participants are 23 or younger. 17-year-old Coco Gauff will make her Cincinnati debut.
