Haas, Kudla, Jarry Receive Wild Cards to Citi Open Main Draw

Former World #2 Tommy Haas returns to the Citi Open

From our friends at the Citi Open...

Tournament officials announced today the addition of three players receiving main draw wild cards into the strongest Citi Open Tennis Tournament player field ever - Tommy Haas, Denis Kudla and Nicolás Jarry.

Haas, a perennial fan favorite in the Washington tournament, reached a career-high ranking of world No. 2. He reached the 2012 Citi Open finals in 2012. The German tennis star has won 15 titles over his 19-year professional career.

Kudla recently had his best-ever Grand Slam result by reaching the fourth round at Wimbledon, losing in four tough sets to last year’s U.S. Open Champion and 2015 Citi Open participant Marin Čilić. The Arlington, Virginia, talent is now back into the ATP World Tour top 100 rankings at No. 94.

Jarry, the grandson of Chilean tennis legend Jaime Fillol, will play his first ATP World Tour 500 event in Washington. The 19-year-old’s entry into the field continues the Citi Open’s longstanding tradition of providing young players a platform to excel and jumpstart their careers.

The Citi Open Box Office at the Rock Creek Park Tennis Center will open for walk-up sales starting Saturday, August 1 at 8 AM. Single session/daily tickets are available online at Courtside hospitality suites are also available by calling the tournament hotline at (202) 721-9500.
