    The Tournament:

    The Washington Open (currently sponsored by Citi bank) is a joint professional tennis tournament played on outdoor hard courts, and held annually at the William H.G. FitzGerald Tennis Center in Rock Creek Park, Washington, D.C., United States. The tournament hosts both the womens and mens tennis tours.

    The Players:

    2015 Champion Kei Nishikori is not returning to defend his title, so John Isner heads the top seeds. Isner is joined by Gael Monfils, Bernard Tomic and young nextgen star Alexander Zverev as favourites for the Washington crown.



    About Washington DC

    Washington, DC, the U.S. capital, is a compact city on the Potomac River, bordering the states of Maryland and Virginia. It’s defined by imposing neoclassical monuments and buildings – including the iconic ones that house the federal government’s 3 branches: the Capitol, White House and Supreme Court – but also its museums and performing-arts venues such as the Kennedy Center.
