Event of the day

Our event of the day...

is the third day of the Citi Open in Washington. It is an ATP World Tour 500 Series event and a WTA Tour International tournament played on hard courts. With the final grand slam of the year starting in less then 4 weeks time on 28th August in New York for the 137th edition of the US Open, this is a key event in the players' build up.

Highlights of the day include men's singles action between US player Steve Johnson and Russian Daniil Medvedev, American Donald Young takes on second seed Kei Nishikori from Japan and number one seed Dominic Thiem from Austria plays Henri Laaksonen from Switzerland. In the women's singles, Romanian Simona Halep plays Colombian Mariana Duque and American Christina McHale takes on Canadian Eugenie Bouchard. It is all set up for a great day of tennis.

Honourable mentions...
