The 2013 Citi Open will include both ATP & WTA International Level tournaments and is one of only 11 elite ATP World Tour 500-level events worldwide and the only one currently held in the United States. The tournament will be held from July 27 to August 4 at the William H.G. Fitzgerald Tennis Center in Rock Creek Park, Washington, D.C. The addition of a WTA International Tournament provides fans the opportunity to watch simultaneous competitions of both world-class men’s and women’s tennis throughout the nine-day event. Citi is just the seventh title sponsor in the 45-year history of the tournament.
Citi’s sponsorship will also provide enhancements to the William H.G. FitzGerald Tennis Center, including major renovations to the facility such as new player locker rooms for both ATP and WTA players, new fitness facilities, training rooms, interview rooms and medical offices. Also new to the tournament are Citi Open Radios which enable fans to get closer to the action through up to the minute play-by-play, color commentary and information regarding onsite fan activities.
The Citi Open provides Citi a great way to mark its involvement in the local community, both on and off the court. The tournament benefits the Washington Tennis & Education Foundation (WTEF), a non-profit organization committed to providing high caliber education and athletic programs to youth from Washington’s DC’s inner city. Citi shares the WTEF’s mission of making a positive impact on the lives of youth in lower-income communities.
