The Washington, D.C.

“We are thrilled to share our initial group of some of the most compelling men’s and women’s players in the world who will make up the incredibly exciting, deep player field we are building for the 2023 tournament,” said Mark Ein, Mubadala Citi DC Open Chairman. “With seven current top 10 players, three former number ones and so many fan favorites, Washington has become one of the most anticipated stops on both tours for players and one of the biggest events of the summer in DC. Ticket sales are at a record pace and we expect a third straight summer of a completely sold-out event.”
