ATP Citi Open 2013: Daily Scores, Results and Schedule

0 of 8

    After a few clay-court tournaments, the hard-court season is once again in full swing, and as players prepare for the U.S. Open next month, the Citi Open will serve as an important preparation for the final Grand Slam of the year. 

    You aren't going to see Novak Djokovic or Andy Murray take the court in Washington D.C. But as one of just 11 ATP 500 tournaments on the year, the Citi Open will play host to tantalizing stars such as Juan Martin Del Potro, Milos Raonic, John Isner, Angelique Kerber, Sloane Stephens and many others. 

    On the men's side, 24-year-old Alexandr Dolgopolov is the defending champion and will be back as the No. 9 seed. 

    For the women, Magdalena Rybarikova won here last year but has done little since. She enters as the No. 7 seed. 

    Be sure to check back here for updates as the event rolls on.

    Juan Martin del Potro (1) defeated John Isner (8)3-6, 6-1, 6-2

    John Isner overpowered Juan Martin del Potro in the early stages in this match. The 6'9" American boomed his way to an impressive 6-3 win in the first set.

    However, Juan Martin del Potro made an adjustment. He began to receive the serve far back from the baseline, and then was able to extend points.

    With del Potro figuring out how to handle Isner's serve, and his scintillating forehand destroying Isner, he took control of this match. 

    Isner won just three games over the last two sets, and 89 minutes after the match started, del Potro was the 2013 Citi Open champ.

    Magdalena Rybarikova (7) defeated Andrea Petkovic 6-4, 7-6 (2)

    Magdalena Rybarikova fell in an early hole. She trailed 0-4 in the opening set. However, the defending champion stormed back and won six straight. 

    To her credit, Andrea Petkovic did not let blowing a four-game lead erode her mental edge. She hung tough and forced a tiebreaker in the second set. However, Rybarikova proved her mettle once again, and for the second straight year, she is the Citi Open champion.

    Juan Martin del Potro (1) defeated Tommy Haas (3)7-6(4), 6-3

     

    American John Isner defeated Dmitry Tursunov in three sets. He nailed 29 aces and cruised after dropping a tiebreak during the first set. With the victory, Isner punches his ticket to his second straight hard-court finals appearance.

    Things didn't appear to be going in his favor initially after letting the first set slip through his fingers. However, a 70-minute rain delay with the match at 6-7(7), 1-2 in Tursunov's favor ended up helping Isner reverse momentum to win his eighth straight match.

    In the other semifinal match, Juan Martin del Potro outlasted Tommy Haas in straight sets. The No. 1-seeded player at the tournament ran into trouble during the first set, but won the tiebreaker and cruised to a victory. He will meet Isner in the final.

    Alize Cornet and Andrea Petkovic were scheduled to take the court at 9:15 p.m. ET, but their match ran well into the night. Two hours after midnight on the East coast, Petkovic engineered an upset of her own to move on to Sunday's final.

    Matosevic engineered an upset against Milos Raonic on Day 4, but his luck ran out against Tursunov. 
    In the first men's singles match of the afternoon on Friday, Dmitry Tursunov and Marinko Matosevic battled like the title was at stake. Trading sets heading into the final frame, Tursunov and Matosevic were tied again (6-6) before the Russian outlasted his opponent 7-4 in the tiebreaker. 

    After dropping his first set, John Isner rebounded to sweep Marcos Baghdatis and move on to the next round. Elsewhere, Tommy Haas was taken to tiebreak in straight sets by Grigor Dimitrov, but stood tall in both frames to pick up the victory.

    The biggest upset of the tournament also came on the women's side of the draw on Day 5. Magdalena Rybarikova took down No. 1-seeded Angelique Kerber in three sets, closing out the top-ranked player with a strong final frame (6-3). 

    Just one day after winning in straight sets, Kerber was not on top of her game against Rybarikova.

    Alize Cornet and Andrea Petkovic both moved on with impressive wins, and third-ranked Ekaterina Makarova punched her ticket into the next round after Monica Niculescu retired just one game into their match.

    In his first action since losing in the semifinals at Wimbledon, Juan Martin del Potro beat Ryan Harrison, 6-1, 7-5. Del Potro typically plays this tournament well. He now has a 10-1 career record here, and he won in 2008 and 2009. 

    This match was supposed to be played yesterday, but rain pushed it back to Thursday. 

    In other action, Marinko Matosevic authored an upset by beating fourth-seeded Milos Raonic 7-5, 7-6 (4).

    The far more surprising upset, however, came when qualifier Somdev Devvarman handled World No. 25 Alex Dolgopolov quite easily in straight sets, earning the 28-year-old Indian his second win in as many days and a spot in the third round.

    Mardy Fish was the only American able to survive his Day 1 match on home soil, as Rajeev Ram, Steve Johnson, James Blake, Denis Kudla and Rhyne Williams all suffered defeats. 

    It wasn't exactly easy for Fish, the world No. 64, either. He dropped his first set to qualifier Matthew Ebden before rolling in the final two to eventually take the hard-fought victory. At one hour and 43 minutes, it was the second-longest men's singles match of the day.

    The longest belonged to Xavier Malisse and Ram. 

    Malisse, the World No. 100, dropped the first set, 4-6, but was able to break the American four times in the final two sets to arrange an intriguing matchup with Grigor Dimitrov. 

    The young Bulgarian will obviously be favored in the second round, but he has gone just 1-1 against Malisse in his career.

    Quite an interesting start from the women's side.

    Burgeoning superstar and tournament No. 2 seed Sloane Stephens fell victim to easily the biggest upset of the day, as World No. 88 Olga Puchkova bested her in straight sets. 

    As Sports Illustrated's Bryan Armen Graham noted, it was a result that continued a puzzling trend for the young American:

    Sloane Stephens this year: 12-3 at majors, 11-12 at non-majors.

    — Bryan Armen Graham (@BryanAGraham) July 30, 2013

    Near the top of the bracket, defending champion Magdalena Rybarikova dropped her first set against another young American, Christina McHale. 

    She fought back, however, winning the next two sets to cap off the scintillating, back-and-forth battle that lasted over two hours. 

    Rybarikova will face Slovakian countrywoman Jana Cepelova in the second round.
