British favourites Andy Murray and Emma Raducanu are entered into the Citi Open in Washington DC.

Both fields also feature a handful of other promising British talents.

In the men’s draw, Murray is joined by Jack Draper, Kyle Edmund and Dan Evans.

At the time of writing the order of play for Monday 1 August had yet to be set but Murray faces Sweden’s Michael Ymer in the first round.

Play will start at 10:00 local time (15:00 BST) with the schedule set to be finalised once the qualifiers wrap on Sunday.

Draper is one of Britain’s fastest rising stars but he has been handed a tough draw, facing American Stefan Kozlov in the first round with a match against top seed Andrey Rublev awaiting the winner.

Edmund will make his ATP Tour singles return when he faces a qualifier and will face compatriot and 16th seed Evans in the Round of 16 should he progress.

In the women’s draw there are no byes and Raducanu is set for a tough opening round match despite being seeded second.

Raducanu faces Marie Bouzkouva in her tournament opener and if she comes through that she will take on either Sofia Kenin or Camila Osorio in the last 16.

The only other Brit to go directly into the women’s main draw is Harriet Dart who is set to take on Lin Zhu.

There are hopes of having a third British woman in the field if Heather Watson can overcome Sweden’s Mirjam Bjorklund in the qualifiers.

How to watch the Citi Open

The Citi Open takes place in Washington DC between 1 and 7 August but the tournament does not have a television partner within the United Kingdom.

This means that British tennis fans will need to stream the feed from the Citi Open over a subscription service.

Both the WTA 250 and ATP 500 events will be broadcast live on Amazon Prime.

The men’s tournament can also be stream on dedicated over the top streaming service Tennis TV.

Viewers in the United States should check local listings for TV times, while the Tennis Channel and Tennis Channel Plus offer alterntive streaming options in North America.
