On July 31, Akoyans in the Washington, DC, area enjoyed an evening of camaraderie, food, and professional tennis at the 2018 Citi Open. The previous night’s wet weather became our boon: we had the opportunity to watch three-time grand slam champion Stan Wawrinka of Switzerland take on Donald Young of the U.S. in a match that had been postponed by rain. Young bested Wawrinka in three sets, which included two tie-breaks. Akoya’s tennis aficionados deemed the action on the court excellent.
Celebrating its 50th year, the Citi Open benefits the Washington Tennis & Education Foundation, of which Akoya is a proud supporter.
