Re: Atlanta Entry List (updated June 17, 2015)

This year’s main draw wild cards will go to Georgia Tech sophomore Christopher Eubanks and rising star Frances Tiafoe. Eubanks was named to the All-Atlantic Coast Conference team this season after finishing with a 14-11 record in dual matches as the No. 1 or 2 player in the lineup and a 24-19 singles record for the year. The Yellow Jackets star posted wins against four of the nation's top 40 ITA ranked players including defeating last year’s BB&T Atlanta Open wild card player, Nathan Pasha of Georgia, twice before wrapping up his season in the second round of the NCAA Singles Championship. Eubanks will play his first match on College Night, Tuesday, July 28.

Tiafoe, the 2013-14 Easter Bowl champion, will also make his Atlanta main draw debut, as he looks to improve upon his second round qualifying results in 2014. He will face Roddick in an exhibition called the “Celebration of American Tennis” on Monday, July 27, not before 8 p.m.

BB&T Atlanta Open Wild Card Challenge Open Results Update
June 11, 2015 11:33 AM
By James I. Pressley/BB&T Atlanta Open

Top competitive male tennis players from across the area had the opportunity to play for a wild card into the BB&T Atlanta Open qualifying tournament and compete against some of the world’s top players. The winner of the BB&T Atlanta Open Wild Card Challenge will be determined after a four-player playoff between Georgia Tech sophomore Michael Kay, Xavier University of Louisiana senior Kyle Montrel, University of Kentucky sophomore Trey Yates and Trent Bryde of Lifetime Athletic Tennis Academy.

In the Hudlow final held Thursday, June 11 at Lifetime Athletics at Peachtree Corners (formerly Racquet Club of the South), Kay defeated McClain Kessler, a rising freshman at the University of Florida, 3-6; 6-0 7-6.

In the other three finals played on Wednesday, June 10, Montrel defeated Connor Thompson, a sophomore at UNC Greensboro, 6-4, 6-4 at Bitsy Grant Tennis Center; Yates overcame Galen Lee of Tennis Academy of the South 6-4, 6-3 at Sandy Springs; and Bryde beat fellow academy mate, Alex Phillips, 6-4; 6-3 at Lifetime.

The BB&T Wildcard Championship will be held on July 21 and 22 on Court 3 at the BB&T Atlanta Open Tournament site. The winner of this Championship will gain entry in to the BB&T Atlanta Open Qualifying draw, which begins on July 25.

Don't understand why they always do this and give absolute no name scrubs WCs to the main draw. If this was a Challenger event, then ok but it's so dam pointless in an ATP event. This Eubanks kid going to get close to double bagelled even if he verses a qualifier.
