Just back from ATP World Tour and WTA Tour Citi Open in Washington, DC

I just returned from 12 days in Washington, DC where I was working as part of the Game.Set.Match Tennis stringing team at the Citi Open. The event is a combined WTA and ATP tournament. For the women it is an International level event with $220,000 in total prize money, and for the men it is a 500 level event (second highest to the “Master’s Series” 1000 level events) with $1.05 million in prize money.

As soon as Alexandr Dolgopolov closed out his three shot victory over Tommy Haas in the rain delayed final, we broke down the last stringing machine, packed up, and headed back to North Carolina. I left the site just after 10:00pm and arrive in Winston-Salem at 4:30am.

Because stringing the tournament is so time-consuming, I am only able to post some blog entries about it after the fact. I hope you find them interesting.
