Defending Western & Southern Open champions Rafael Nadal, currently ranked #1 in the world, and Victoria Azarenka, the 2012 and 2013 winner of the Australian Open, will compete to retain their titles. Cincinnati is one of only five tennis events in the world, outside of the grand slams, where the top-ranked men and women in the sport play at the same venue in the same week.

In a change of format for 2014, Semifinal Saturday will differ from the usual schedule. Those accustomed to men's matches in the day and women at night should note that 2014 will feature one men's and one women's match each session on Saturday, August 16.
