Next Year Marks the Final Atlanta Open

ATLANTA — The Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) has announced that next year’s Atlanta Open will be the tournament’s final edition. Founded in 2010, the Atlanta Open has been a significant lead-up event to the U.S. Open, attracting tennis enthusiasts from around the world.

The tournament, held at Atlantic Station, has become a cherished tradition for both players and fans alike. However, the ATP has decided to retire the Atlanta Open, along with five other tournaments, to make way for upgrades to other events.

Peter Lebedevs, the Atlanta Open tournament director, expressed his gratitude for the support received from the city, the tennis community, and local universities over the past 15 years. Lebedevs stated, “The 2024 Atlanta Open will be a celebration of past champions and the great run of the tournament. We are working to bring professional tennis back to this great city in some capacity.”

Throughout its history, the Atlanta Open has drawn approximately 40,000 fans, creating an electric atmosphere for players to showcase their skills. Notable past winners include John Isner, a six-time champion and University of Georgia alum, as well as Andy Roddick, Mardy Fish (twice), Nick Kyrgios, and Taylor Fritz, who claimed victory in this year’s tournament.

The final Atlanta Open is scheduled to take place from July 20-28, 2024. Tennis enthusiasts and fans of the tournament are encouraged to mark their calendars and join in celebrating the rich history and memorable moments that have unfolded on the courts of Atlantic Station.
