Andy at Washington

Quote

Andy is on his way to Washington DC for his first hard court tournament since Indian Wells in 2017.

Andy last committed to playing the ATP 500 hard court tournament in Washington DC in 2015. Although his stay there was brief - it ended in a first round defeat - he went on to win the Rogers Cup in Montreal the following week, which helped him secure the year end number two ranking for the first time in his career.

Things are a bit different this time round. Back then Andy probably should have withdrawn from Washington following his wedding, what was then his best clay season on tour, and a long run on grass which ended with him battling Gilles Simon on the grass at Queen's Club in the Davis Cup. Now Andy needs to regain his confidence, his match fitness and gather some much needed points.

The field at the Citi Open is a strong one this year, including defending champion Alexander Zverev, defending finalist Kevin Anderson, British number one Kyle Edmund, former Washington champion Kei Nishikori, as well as a number of exciting up and coming players such as Denis Shapovalov, Karen Khachanov, Stefanos Tsitsipas and Hyeon Chung. Stan Wawrinka has been awarded a wildcard.

Full draw.

DC, Toronto and NY are all 5 hours behind BST. Cincy is also 5 hours behind but we don’t know if Andy is playing that. If he decides to play the week before the USO then Winston-Salem is also in that time zone.

Thanks ATL.  That’s the next few weeks taken care of.

Gosh, at last. I'm feeling seriously tempted to do a one-day dash down to DC next week. Haven't seen Andy play in person since the US Open about eight years ago...

If you can do it on a day when you know you’ll see him play then go for it, if you can.

Yesterday's practice session.

UA's socks and shoes must have the most incredible wicking/cooling properties. Only explanation for all the black shoes.
