The 2019 Citi Open will once again bring some of the world's best tennis stars to the nation's capital. Another strong class of ATP stars paired with several up-and-coming WTA players are set to square off in late July for a tournament title.
As a part of the U.S. Open series, the Citi Open is a hard court tournament that serves as a warm-up event. On the men's side it is a 500-level ATP event and for the women, it is a part of the WTA's International tournaments. This will be the 51st year of the event and the ninth year that a women's competition will be held.
Continuing its recent tradition of drawing top players, the 2019 Citi Open field will be loaded once again. In particular, the men's side shows a great balance of experience and exuberant youth. Stefanos Tsitsipas is the highest ranked player, but both the men's and women's draws feature a slew of players with impressive resumes. A staple of the tournament and past Citi Open champion, Kei Nishikori, returns for another year of competition, as well as top American male John Isner. Local products, Frances Tiafoe from Hyattsville, Md. and Denis Kudla from Arlington, Va. will be prominently featured men's players as well.
As of June 18 ATP rankings, 22 of the world's top 50 ranked male players will be at the Citi Open.
The women's bracket is one of the most impressive fields that the tournament has had. Former U.S. Open champion, Sloane Stephens highlights the field and will be joined by fellow American Madison Keys as two of the tour's top stars in D.C. They represent only two of the 32 women who will make up the women's main draw.
Twelve of the world's top 50 women in the world are also in the field.
