Rinky Hijikata and Jason Kubler, who won the Australian Open in January, headline the doubles field of the 2023 US Men's Clay Court Championship held from April 1-9 at River Oaks Country Club.
The Australian champs will be joined by two former US Clay doubles winners in the field - Max Purcell returns after last year’s title and 2019 champion Santiago Gonzalez will also be back.
Purcell, who also won doubles at Wimbledon last season, will partner this year with fellow Australian Jordan Thompson while Gonzalez, who won the 2019 Langston Sportsmanship Award, is teaming up with fellow Mexican Hans Hach Verdugo.
A team that previously reached the US Clay final will also be back at River Oaks. Frances Tiafoe and Dustin Brown will reunite after reaching the 2017 US Clay finale together.
Joining them on the red clay are US Clay 2019 singles champion Cristian Garin and former University of Southern California standout Emilio Gomez.
