The BB&T Atlanta Tennis Open, July 20-28 2013

The tenth Atlanta Tennis Open 2013 will take place at Atlantic Station on July 20th through to 28th 2013.

This outstanding ATP World Tour 250 Event will again attract 28 of the world’s top players in the main draw, with another four players coming from qualifying (July 20th to 21st).

Committed players so far include Mardy Fish (winner in 2010 & 2011), John Isner, hopefully Andy Roddick (winner in 2012), plus Mike and Bob Bryan in the doubles.

As part of the Emirates Airline US Open Series, Atlanta (formerly the RCA Tennis Championships) is the first men’s tournament in the eight-tournament series directly leading up the US Open.

Can Andy Roddick repeat his 2012 win and take the title again in 2013?

The BB&T Atlanta Tennis Open, July 14-22 2012

The Atlanta Tennis Championships (RCA Championships, Indianapolis Tennis Championships) is a ATP World Tour 250 Masters Event in Atlanta.

First held in 1988 in Indianapolis, Indiana this event was the U.S. Men’s Hard Court Championships, a major tournament of the Grand Prix Tennis Circuit. In 1990 it was renamed the RCA Tennis Championships, and turned a hard court event at the Indianapolis Tennis Center resurfacing all its 18 clay courts with Deco-Turf, to match the US Open surface – it remains a key preparation event for this major timed before the annual trip to Flushing Meadow.

In 2009 the ATP sold the license to a group in Atlanta, Georgia, where this Masters 250 event now resides. So nine years after Andy Roddick won his maiden title on green clay in Atlanta, ATP World Tour tennis returned to Georgia’s capital city in 2010, for the hard-court BB&T Atlanta Open.
