The director of the Western & Southern Open says new seating in the south building of the Lindner Family Tennis Center is the first of its kind in the world for tennis. Andre Silva showed off the new construction Thursday, three weeks before the start of the tournament.

The Western & Southern Open is the nation's oldest professional tennis tournament played in its city of origin. And this month fans will once again be able to see some of the greatest players in tennis compete.
