2022 Citi Open Tournament Field: Schedule, players, times, how to watch

·6 min read

Citi Open tournament information originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

The 2022 Citi Open will once again bring some of the world's best tennis stars to the nation's capital. As has become the norm in the District, another strong class of ATP and WTA players is set to square off in late July for a tournament title.

Headling the field on the men's side is former World No. 1 Andy Murray and for the women, reigning U.S. Open champion Emma Raducanu.

The women's portion of the event is welcomed back after a brief hiatus last year. Considering COVID-19 limitations in the tour's schedule, Octogon - who owns the WTA sanction - moved the event to the West Coast. In it's place, the Citi Open held a women's exhibition where ranking points weren't on the line.

This will be the 53rd year for the Citi Open championship held from July 30-Aug. 7 at Rock Creek Park. It is just the 10th time there is a women's singles championship.

As a part of the U.S. Open series, the Citi Open is a hard-court tournament that serves as a warm-up event for the final major in Flushing Meadows, NY. It is a 500-level ATP event for the men's side, two tiers below a major. For the women, it's a 250-level event that has 16 fewer players in the bracket.

Last season, the 2021 Citi Open made waves by bringing in the highest-profile player in tournament history when Rafael Nadal made his return from injury in D.C. While the star power isn't as huge this season, there are still a ton of big names joining Murray and Raducanu.

Six of the 16 Wimbledon quarterfinalists highlight the field. The top American male, Taylor Fritz, and five of the top six American males in the top 40 are in the ATP field, as well as Wimbledon finalist and 2019 Citi Open champion Nick Kyrgios. Eleven of the top 30 men's players led the way for the men. The No. 2 American woman and reigning Citi Open champion Jessica Pegula, is the highest-ranked competitor in the women's draw. That draw has five of the top 20 ranked women's players in the world.

Local talent Frances Tiafoe returns for his sixth entry into the main field, looking to avenge losing his first match exit last season. Arlington, Va. native Denis Kudla is trying to build off his second-ever Citi Open Quarterfinal in 2022.

Who is in the 2022 Citi Open Field?

The 2022 Citi Open will have 48 ATP players in the main singles draw, with several of those players and many other joining them for the doubles draw. There will be 32 WTA competitors in the Citi Open women's main singles draw and a doubles bracket as well.
