The first player to be announced to play in 2013, John Isner has made the Citi Open a staple event on his summer calendar after numerous successes, including a Cinderella run during his ATP World Tour debut in 2007, as he entered as a Wildcard and advanced to the finals against top-seed Andy Roddick. Since then, Isner has reached the quarterfinals, or better, in four of his five appearances at the tournament.

The 7,500 seat tennis center, also known as Rock Creek Tennis Center, is located at Rock Creek Park, a division of the National Park Service.
Parking is very limited at the tennis center itself, so it is recommended that spectators take Metro to the Van Ness UDC station. Free shuttle service will operate every 10-12 minutes beginning one hour prior to the start of matches and will run until one hour after the last match. You may also park at the Van Ness UDC metro station and ride the free shuttle buses.
