The Legg Mason Tennis Classic is an annual late-summer men's tennis tournament played in Washington, D.C.marker as part of the ATP Tour. It was first held (as the Washington Star International) in 1969. It was later known as the Sovran Bank Classic. The tournament was played on a clay court until 1986, after which it switched to hard. It has remained a hard court tournament ever since.

The Legg Mason Tennis Classic is now one of the United States Open Series of hard-court tournaments leading up to the US Open in September.

The tournament is produced by SFX Media & Events, a Blue Equity Company. Its lead sponsor is Legg Mason, a financial services company. Throughout its existence, the tournament has been closely associated with Donald Dell, founder of ProServ International, who was instrumental in creation of the tournament. The location of the tournament in Washington D.C. was chosen at the urging of Arthur Ashe, an early supporter.

It is held at the William H.G.marker FitzGerald Tennis Centermarker in Rock Creek Parkmarker, a U.S. National Park. The tournament is accessible by taking the Metro to the UDC stop and then taking a free shuttle bus.
