It’s that time of year again! Thirty days until TennisInsideOut.com begins coverage of our hometown Slam, the Western and Southern Open, Cincinnati Masters. We thought it would be fun to supply a daily countdown on the site, sharing never-before-seen pics and stories from previous Cincy tournaments.

Those one-handed backhands can be a bit tricky to pull off…

We begin with Round 1 of last year, and a little love for Germany’s Philipp Kohlschreiber. He nabbed a three-set victory over Frenchman Jeremy Chardy out on Grandstand Court, and we photographed the winning serve.

Chardy’s French. You gotta expect a little romantic hand-holding after the formal handshake.

Kohli did a crowd-pleasing on-court interview, flashing a little skin as well as flexing his comedic muscles.
