All eyes will be on Rock Creek Park as the Mubadala Citi Open kicks off this week. This will be the first joint-500-level event between the ATP and WTA tours, after the women’s tournament was upgraded this year. That said, a lot of players will make the trip to Washington DC this week, hoping to win the title. In this article, we’ll provide our daily Citi Open predictions, whilst taking a look at some of the outright favourites.
ATP Washington Open Predictions – Outright Winner
It’s important to point out that Nick Kyrgios is the defending champion of this competition. The Australian won his second Citi Open title last year, defeating Yoshihito Nishioka in the final. However, the former Wimbledon finalist will not participate in this competition. With that in mind, our pick for the Washington Open title is Taylor Fritz. The American is fresh off his second ATP title of the year; as he reigned supreme in Atlanta last weekend. Although there are a couple of players who will give the former World number 5 a run for his money, we are fairly confident that he’ll hoist the title when it’s all said and done.
ATP Citi Open Betting Tips – Day 5
Taylor Fritz to Win 2-1
Grigor Dimitrov to Win
Alexander Shevchenko to Win a Set
These are the current favourites to win the Mubadala Citi Open title:
It’s important to point out that Taylor Fritz is coming into this tournament on the back of four consecutive wins. He won the Atlanta Open crown last weekend, surrendering just one set en route to the title. The American is now on the hunt for his third ATP title of the year, having also won the Delray Beach Open in February. At the time of writing, Fritz can be backed at 4/1 (5.00) to win the Citi Open title.
At 4/1 (5.00), Frances Tiafoe is another player worth keeping an eye out for. The American has also had his fair share of success on the ATP Tour this year. Like Fritz, Tiafoe has two ATP titles to his name this year; as he won the Houston and Stuttgart Opens. It’s also fair to point out that the 25 year old advanced to the quarter-final of this competition last year, where he lost to eventual champion Nick Kyrgios. It’ll be interesting to see how far he’ll go this year.
It may interest you to know that Grigor Dimitrov is still on the hunt for his first ATP title of the year, and the last time he won a title was in 2017. However, the Bulgarian player came close once, when he lost at the Geneva Open final in May. Dimitrov defeated Mackenzie McDonald and Emil Ruusuvuori in the previous two rounds in straight sets; he is currently valued at 9/2 (5.50) to win the Citi Open title this weekend.
