It’s important to point out that the Mubadala Citi Open was a WTA 250 event up until this year. With the upgrade to a 500 level competition, this will be the first and only joint-500-level tournament on both the men’s and women’s tours. In this article, we’ll take a look at some of the outright favourites, whilst providing our daily WTA Citi Open predictions.
WTA Washington Open Predictions – Outright Winner
It’s worth mentioning that Liudmila Samsonova won the Mubadala Citi Open title last year, beating Kaia Kanepi in the final. This is the 11th edition of this competition; and while three former champions will participate in this year’s event, no active player has won this title more than once. That said, our pick for the Washington Open crown is Madison Keys. We’ve been impressed by the American’s performances in recent months; she won nine of her last 10 matches at the time of writing, winning a WTA title in that stretch. Keys will have to contend with some of the top players for the Citi Open crown, but we believe she’ll reign supreme when it’s all said and done.

At the time of writing, these are the current favourites to win the Washington Open title:
At 3/1 (4.00), Jessica Pegula is the favourite to hoist the Mubadala Citi Open title. It may interest you to know that despite being in the top 5 of the WTA rankings for pretty much the whole year, Pegula is still hunting for her first WTA singles title of 2023. She came close once, losing to Iga Swiatek in the Qatar Open final. It’s fair to point out that Jessica Pegula is a former Washington Open champion; as she won this event four years ago. I’ll be interesting to see if she can get that elusive title here in Washington.
On the other hand, Coco Gauff did win a title this year, at the ASB Classic in Auckland. However, that triumph was in January, the former Roland Garros finalist has fared better in doubles than she has in singles since then. As a matter of fact, Gauff crashed out in the first round of the Wimbledon Championships last month; she last featured in this tournament four years ago, where she lost in the first round. As it stands, Gauff can be backed at 4/1 (5.00) to win her first Washington Open title this week.
Another player worth keeping an eye out for is Madison Keys. The 28 year old has enjoyed some fine form in recent months; as she won nine of 10 matches prior to this tournament, with eight of those victories coming in straight sets. Interestingly, Madison Keys reigned supreme at the Eastbourne Open in July, dropping no sets en route to the title. She’s currently valued at 5/1 (6.00) to win this year’s edition of the Mubadala Citi Open.
