Citi Open 2017 - Day 1 Photo Recap

#7(Q) Sekou Bangoura defeated Ryan Goetz in 3 sets

Mother Nature decided to interfere with the first day of the Citi Open, wiping out women's qualifying in the process, which means the top female qualifiers have to win twice tomorrow, to advance to Monday's main draw. The men were much luckier, and predictable (seeds 3-11 advanced, only #12 Wil Spencer lost, to Alexios Halebian 6-1, 5-7, 6-4.) The rain put a damper on what should have been a packed house at Rock Creek Tennis Center. At least tomorrow's weather forecast looks promising perfect (sunny, 83°.) Today's best match? Sekou Bangoura topped American teen Ryan Goetz in three sets 6-2, 6-7 (2-7) 6-0. Click here to see today's results.

The final day of qualifying begins tomorrow at 10 AM; and the ATP & WTA main draws get underway on Monday at 2 PM. Click here to purchase tickets; and if you can't make it, you can follow along on the Tennis Channel: Click here to see the full broadcast schedule.
