The Atlanta Open has been a staple of the Southern summer since 2010. The best American players generally show up to this tournament as they prepare for the US Open. As part of the US Open Summer Series, this hard court event is the perfect warm-up. Atlantic Station, one of the most unique venues in all of tennis, is a relatively new area, filled with shopping, restaurants and entertainment. The Atlanta Open is set up in the heart of Atlantic Station, and taken down once the tournament concludes.
