CITI DC Open History and Winners
The women’s event was first held in 2011 in College Park, Maryland as the Citi Open, and for the 2012 season, the ATP and WTA decided to merge their Maryland and Washington spots into a joint tournament, with the women’s event moving to the William H.G. FitzGerald Tennis Center.
In June 2023, it was announced that Mubadala would be a co-sponsor of the event, and the event would become branded as the Mubadala Citi DC Open after the WTA moved its sanction from the Silicon Valley Classic to the Washington Open. It was also announced that the women’s event would be promoted from a WTA 250 to a WTA 500 tournament, which would make the Washington Open the world’s first joint-500-level tennis tournament in the world on both the ATP and WTA tours.
