2017 BB&T Atlanta Tennis Open #BBTAO Tuesday, July 25 recap

I finally got to see some tennis yesterday, Tuesday, July 25, from the volunteer viewing area atop the Stadium Court:

That's the place, just under the American flag, to the right of "Coca Cola":

I got to see a little bit of the match between Reilly Opelka and Malek Jaziri; after the American squandered match points in the second set, the Tunisian won the tiebreaker 16-14, and the third 6-1:

I also got to see the end of the first set of Atlantan Donald Young's straight set victory over American Tim Smyczek and captured his exultant scream as he came back from serving at 5-4, 0-40 to take the first set on video:

Perhaps the biggest news from Tuesday's first round matches was local favorite Georgia Tech's Christopher Eubanks first ATP main Tour win, in straight sets, over favored, tour up-and-comer Taylor Fritz last night.  Go Jackets!

Others moving on to the second round include Americans Jared Donaldson and Tommy Paul, Great Britain's Kyle Edmund, Israel's Dudi Sela, Slovakian Lukas Lacko, and Canadian Vasek Pospisil.
