2019 US Open runner-up Daniil Medvedev and reigning ATP Finals champion Stefanos Tsitsipas are set to headline the field at next month’s Citi Open in Washington, where the ATP Tour is currently set to resume following its enforced suspension due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Medvedev and Tsitsipas have both played at the tournament previously, with the Russian the runner-up and the Greek a semifinalist at last year’s event. Both men fell to Nick Kyrgios, who seems unlikely to feature at all during the revised North American Hard Court summer considering his vocal criticism of the US Open’s decision to take place as usual.
David Goffin and Roberto Bautista Agut are currently set to round out the top four seeds at the tournament, with the likes of former champions- and former top ten players- Milos Raonic and Kei Nishikori also among the 38 players entered into the main draw. The tournament intends to hold the qualifying draw as normal, with ten players set to earn a spot in the main draw through this.
Traditionally starting in late July, the main draw in Washington D.C is set to start on the 17th August as the first tournament on the ATP Tour since the beginning of March. The ATP Tour is resuming two weeks after the WTA Tour, with the Citi Open is set to be followed by the Cincinnati Masters, this year held at Flushing Meadows. The US Open will take place in the same grounds following that.
