I wonder if I could volunteer with the media department for a few days. I did it with WTT; I'm trying to do it for a challenger next year. Hmmmmm....

I'll be at this tournament a lot I'm sure! So excited we're finally getting an event back in Atlanta like we should have.

Who else is going from here?

And sooo ... they're converting the green clay at Atlanta Athletic Club to hard court. Is that temporary or permanent? Kind of shocked me when I learned that we'd be having a traditionally clay club having a hard court tournament, but beggars cannot be choosers. ;)

How early do you think I should purchase tickets? Is this going to be a hard ticket to get?

I'll be there. Living in Birmingham, Alabama, Atlanta is just a 2 hour drive.

I'm taking a week of vacation and going to volunteer during the tourney. Working Monday through Friday & picked up a ticket for the Semis on Saturday.

Completely stoked. Going to be so much fun!

I don't care about the quality of the list. I'm going! We haven't had ATP tennis in Atlanta since 2001 when Andy R won his 1st tournament ever. I'm dying for any kind of tennis in Atlanta.

So Andy is coming back to the place of the crime, where he won his 1st ever ATP tournament back in 2001. I'm so going! I thought I'd attend the 1st couple of rounds, but now it looks like I'll be there the whole week.

A friend offered me tickets for Sunday. I might just go check out the grounds and see who's there practicing.

I have tickets to the stadium court for tomorrow. Do you need to have seperate tickets to go watch courts 1 and 2? I saw no option on the website to buy outer court tickets.

You have to buy a ticket for the stadium, and it gets you into everything else.

Article below from a local TV station. Personally, I was very pleased with the tournament and am glad to hear they are returning next year. Obviously we're never going to have a Grand Slam and would be hard to realistically get higher than an ATP 250, but I am more than thrilled to have our own little piece of the ATP calendar in our tennis hotbed. :)



Heat Not Deterring Fans At Atlanta Tennis Championships
Organizers: Event A Success

JOHNS CREEK, Ga. -- The Atlanta Tennis Championships wrapped up at the Atlanta Athletic Club Sunday. Despite the heat, organizers called it a success. They said they will be back next year.

This was the first ATC since 2001 because organizers said the event needed a sponsor.

Bill Oaks, tournament director, said of how the tournament went, "Beyond our expectations to be honest."

The tournament happened to fall during a time when metro Atlanta was dealing with oppressive heat.

Fans said the temperature on and around the court was well above 100 degrees. They said they were keeping cool with water, hats, fans and water-soaked towels.

Johns Creek Fire-Rescue said over the course of the event: 31 people were treated on-site for heat-related illnesses and six were transported to the hospital.

Even with the high temperatures, organizers said 40,000 people attended the tournament. The first Saturday and Sunday were qualifying matches with main events held the following Monday through Sunday.

The tournament concluded with Mardy Fish beating UGA grad John Isner for the ATC title.
