Coming to a city near you, men’s professional tennis!

With qualifying starting this weekend, and running through the finals on Sunday, July 24, the ATP Tour will visit Atlanta for the 2nd Atlanta Tennis Championships (ATC), thus begins this summer’s Olympus US Open Series, which culminates in the 2011 U.S. Open at the USTA’s Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows, New York, August 29 - September 11.

The 2010 ATC was a terrific event with a thrilling final that featured Mardy Fish beating John Isner in a third set tiebreaker; I uploaded the last point of the match and the awards ceremony to YouTube. Last year, I had the pleasure of attending some quarterfinal matches and the finals of that event and decided to volunteer at this year’s event. I’ll be a scorekeeper and/or court monitor in the late afternoons to evening Monday through Thursday, and will also be attending the finals (again) as a spectator.

Hope to see you there!
