Citi Open Tickets
In 2011, tennis fans from all over the country came together in College Park, Maryland to celebrate the establishment of a new professional tennis tournament. The inaugural event that celebrated the start of the Citi Open tournament showcased a number of the top tennis professionals and doubles teams in the sport today as they competed in the week long event to win the coveted title of first Citi Open Champion in history. The 2011 event was held at the end of July and is slated to continue to be a late July and early August event.
Held at the Tennis Center at College Park, conveniently located between Baltimore, Maryland and Washington D.C., tennis fans from both cities and from cities all over the country were able to travel to the venue to see the first annual celebration of this tournament. The 2012 event will be operating under the same name, and will still take place at the end of July, however, the location will be moving to the William H.G. FitzGerald Tennis Center in Rock Creek Park to accommodate what is expected to be a huge crowd of fans.
With the 2011 winners including big names in the sport such as Nadia Petrova and the doubles teamof Sania Mirza and Yaroslava Shvedova, fans can expect some of the most competitive tennis players in the sport today at this outdoor hard court tournament. The tournament is currently part of the women’s WTA Tour and part of the men’s ATP Tour and is planning for substantial growth with every year of the tournament. As it is positioned to be one of the fastest growing tournaments in the sport today and one of the few to visit this area of the country, the popularity of the inaugural year is expected to only be a preview of what this huge tournament has in store.
With a massive stadium to hold thousands of fans, and week long events such as National Parks Recreation Family Day, The USTA Member Appreciation Day, Wine Tasting Events and the Chef Challenge, there is much to look forward to with the Citi Open. With a bright future of the tournament in store and what promises to be some of the most competitive match ups in tennis during the tournament, the Citi Open is slated to be one of the most exciting tennis events of the summer
