Well I’m back from Cincinnati, although this entry would have been a little more interesting had I written it on Monday like I had originally intended, but I digress. I should actually clarify that I wasn’t in Cincinnati, but rather at the Western & Southern tennis tournament in the smaller town of Mason, Ohio, just north of Cin City. (See what I did there?) Silliness aside, I really do love visiting this town every year for the tournament. It’s got a nice selection of restaurants, has friendly natives, and for those who aren’t into tennis, a few other attractions.
- King’s Island Amusement Park
- The Grizzly 18-hole golf course
- Outlet stores within 30 minutes
- Several pubs
- Mason Arts Festival (held once a year)
Federer finished this guy off with a score of 6-4 6-1. The next match we attended was on Friday afternoon. Rafael Nadal went head-to-head with Mardy Fish, but sadly he lost 6-3 6-4.
The evening match on Friday was between Novak Djokovic and Gael Monfils, which ended with Djokovic winning 3-6, 6-4, 6-3.
On Saturday evening, we caught Maria Sharapova beating Vera Zvonareva 2 – 6 6 – 3 6 – 3. Not only was I completely blown away by Sharapova’s power, but that she was so thin. Oh and did I mention practically 6’1″?
Finally we ended our trip with my all time favorite player, Jelena Jankovic playing Andrea Petkovic. She whooped her butt with a score of 3-6 6-1 6-3.
We had a blast in Cincinnati, but I was definitely ready to get home to my babies!

My Healthy Choice of the Day: I loaded up on veggies and hummus at lunch so I wouldn’t snack the rest of the day. It worked!
