Citi Open TicketsThe Citi Open has been at the forefront of innovation in the sport of tennis since its first season in 1969. Known as the Legg Mason Tennis Classic since 1994, the tournament became known as the Citi Open in 2011. It has instituted such features as blue courts and instant-replay video boards. This event is part of the US Open Series and has added a Sunday Main Draw start as well as an ATP "500" level tournament. In 2012, the Women's Tennis Association and the Association of Tennis Professionals began a joint tournament at the Citi Open in Washington, DC, when they added the WTA International tournament (previously played as an inaugural tournament at the Citi Open in Maryland in 2011). The Citi Open is one of five tennis tournaments to be included in both the ATP and WTA circuits.
