Citi Open Tennis Highlights (photos)
The ATP World Tour hard-court tournament at the William H.G. FitzGerald Tennis Center in the Rock Creek Park section of Washington, DC., had changed its name to the Citi Open, after being known as the Legg Mason Tennis Classic since 1994. And for the first time it expanded the field to include female participants.
Alexandr Dolgopolov of Ukraine defeated Tommy Haas of Germany in the men's final 6-7 (9-7), 6-4, 6-1. Magdalena Rybarikova of Slovakia routed top-seed Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova of Russia to take the women's crown 6-1 6-1. Alexandria native Treat Huey paired with his former University of Virginia teammate Dominic Inglot to capture their first career ATP titles with a 7-6 (9-7), 6-7 (11-9), 10-5 win over Sam Querrey and Kevin Anderson in the men’s doubles final.
The 2012 Citi Open ATP World Tour 500 Level men’s event is recognized as one of the top 20 ATP events in the world offering nearly $1.5M in prize money. The WTA tournament, which was historically held the week before the then Legg Mason Tennis Classic, will now be played simultaneously with the men’s event with $220,000 in prize money. The tournament took place from July 28 thru August 5, 2012.
