Citi Open Tennis 2019: TV Schedule, Live Stream, Tournament Seeds and Odds

Less than a month on since her exploits at Wimbledon, tennis teenage sensation Coco Gauff has qualified for the main draw of the Citi Open in thrilling fashion.

The 15-year-old needed just over an hour to dispatch Japan's Hiroko Kuwata 6-1, 6-2 in the qualifying round on Sunday and will now take on Kazakhstan's Zarina Diyas in the first round on Tuesday.

Ranked 313th in the world before Wimbledon, Gauff climbed to 143rd in the world after her run at the All England Club, when she beat Venus Williams on her way to the round of 16.

The teenager will now have the chance to test herself in Washington D.C. in one of the key warm-up events of the North American hard-court season, ahead of next month's U.S. Open.

Here's everything you need to know about the tournament.

Who are the top seeds?

Germany's Alexander Zverev will be looking to defend his title this week in a field which also includes John Isner, the highest-ranked American in the ATP Tour.

The world number 15, is a three-time finalist in Washington and reached the semifinals at Wimbledon last year.

The men's field includes 14 of the top-40 ranked male players in the world, headlined by number one seed Stefanos Tsitsipas.

The Greek is the current world number six and reached the Australian open semifinals earlier this year, while last year's Wimbledon runner-up Kevin Anderson is also among the contenders.

The field also includes tennis' resident "bad boy", Australia's Nick Kyrgios, and France's Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

Among the women, last year's champion Svetlana Kuznetsova will not be playing and the top three seeds are all Americans - Sloane Stephens, Madison Keys and Sofia Kenin.

Canada's Eugenie Bouchard, the former world number five, is also among the contenders.


Tsitsipas is the bookmakers' choice to win in Washington. According to Oddschecker, the Greek is a 7/1 favorite (+700 in moneyline terms), followed by Anderson at 9/1 and Karen Khachanov and Daniil Medvedev both at 10/1.

Among the women, Sloane Stephens is a 23/5 favorite with Oddsportal, followed by Madison Keys at 93/20 and Hsieh Su-Wei at 42/5.
