• Fish, Haas headline Olympic week in Washington

    Fish, Haas headline Olympic week in Washington Washington is still 500 points, but the draw is not as strong this year because the Olympics are going on simultaneously. Mardy Fish, Alexandr Dolgpolov, Kevin Anderson, and Tommy Haas lead a watered-down field.

    With most of the top players in the world at the London Olympics, a 500-point title is completely up for grabs this week at the Citi Open in Washington, D.C. Among those expected to contend are No. 1 seed Mardy Fish and fourth-seeded Tommy Haas, both Olympic silver medalists.

    Fish, who finished runner-up to Nicolas Massu eight years ago in Athens, is looking to bounce back from a right ankle injury sustained in his opening match in Atlanta. The 30-year-old American begins against Bjorn Phau before a possible meeting with either Ricardas Berankis or Nicolas Mahut. Berankis and Mahut just faced each other in the Los Angeles quarterfinals, with Berankis winning in straight sets.

    Haas and Fish are on a collision course for the semifinals in the top half of the bracket. The 34-year-old German, second place at the 2000 Sydney Games, is in the same quarter as Benoit Paire, who was the top seed in L.A. but lost his opening match to Michael Russell.

    A tough third section features Sam Querrey, Kevin Anderson, and American wild cards Brian Baker and Steve Johnson. Doubles partners Querrey and Johnson could go head-to-head in the second round. A softer fourth quarter of the bracket includes James Blake and second-seeded Alexandr Dolgopolov.

    If the seeds hold to form, which is not likely in a field with such parity, quarterfinal matchups will pit Fish against Jeremy Chardy, Haas against Paire, Anderson against Querrey, and Dolgopolov against Pablo Andujar.
