The Mubadala Citi DC Open is the world's only combined ATP and WTA 500-level event. We are proud to host both a men's and women's tournament simultaneously at the Rock Creek Park Tennis Center. The ATP (the men's tennis international governing body) and the WTA (the women's international governing body) are two separate tours with distinct tournament structures, calendars, and funding models.This results in the difference in prize money and international television coverage, which is among the considerations that dictate court schedules. .
