Week 31 (w/c 29 July): Washington, Los Cabos, Kitzbuhel, San Jose

This week is considered by many to be the proper start of the American hard court swing in the lead up to next month’s US Open.

Katie Boulter reached the second round in Washington last year.

Washington

ATP 500 and WTA International, Amazon Prime Video and BT Sport

The Citi Open in Washington is a combined men’s and women’s event.

Kyle Edmund is seeded here and has a bye into the second round. Dan Evans is also competing in singles. Alexander Zverev has chosen not to defend his title, and Stefanos Tsitsipas is the top seed.

Last year Edmund was knocked out in the second round by Andy Murray who then withdrew before his quarter final. Andy Murray is back this year – not in singles – but partnering brother Jamie Murray who won the title last year with Bruno Soares.

Joe Salisbury and Rajeev Ram also play in the doubles draw.

Naomi Broady was the sole British entrant in the women’s competition this year, losing in the first qualifying round.

Svetlana Kuznetsova has had problems getting a US visa and so is unable to defend her title; Sloane Stephens is the top seed. At the time of writing the women’s doubles draw had not yet been made.

Amazon Prime Video has multi-court coverage of the men’s single matches while the WTA coverage is on BT Sport each night.

Challengers

Jay Clarke is seeded and has a bye into the second round in Liberec, Czech Republic. Likewise for Brydan Klein in Chengdu, China and Jan Choinski in Sopot, Poland.

Liam Broady is seeded in Lexington, Kentucky, where Lloyd Glasspool and Evan Hoyt also made the main draw. Katie Swan entered the W60 event in Lexington, while Emily Webley-Smith is expected to play qualifying there.

In the M25 tournament at the National Tennis Centre, Roehampton you can find Paul Jubb, Jack Draper, Aidan McHugh, Mark Whitehouse, Neil Pauffley, Luke Johnson, George Loffhagen and Ewan Moore with direct acceptance into the main draw, with a few more expected to join them and many more playing qualifying on Monday.

Likewise there are many Brits on the acceptance list for the W25 Woking, at Foxhill Club. Naiktha Bains, Gabirella Taylor, Samantha Murray, Emily Appleton, Amanda Carreras and Alice Gillan are those who had made the main draw by Thursday’s cut-off.

If there is live streaming of either of these events on home soil I will mention it on twitter, but even better if you are able to get there yourself to support these players.
