This year’s tournament had some noticeable faces playing, including former world No. 1s Venus Williams and Andy Murray, who both competed on Aug. 1.

Murray fell to Mikeal Ymer 7-6, 4-6, 6-1 in the Citi Open first round. Although this was a difficult loss for Murray, his game was so much bigger than the Citi Open.

Since March, Murray has promised to donate all of his prize money for  the rest of the year to the United Nations International Children's  Emergency Fund.

According to ATP Staff, the Citi Open’s Chairman, Mark Ein, has “pledged to match the Scot’s prize money donation from next week’s ATP 500 tournament in Washington, D.C.”

Venus Williams’ return to the court was a crowd pleaser, to say the  least. This was the seven-time Grand Slam champion’s first singles match  in almost a year.

The Citi Open took place from July 30 through Aug. 7. The tournament is  not only for tennis fans, but also open to all and was an entertaining  event to attend in D.C.
