Tournament officials have announced that Gael Monfils and Sam Querrey will be taking part in the BB&T Atlanta Open in July.
With Isner already scheduled to compete in Atlanta, the tournament now has the top two Americans ready to compete in the first men’s event in the Emirates Airline US Open Series.
“I’m really looking forward to playing Atlanta for the first time.” said Querrey.”I know John Isner, whom I’ve won two doubles titles with, has had great success there and I want to go head-to-head with him and the rest of the field.”
Following his victory in the Open Sud de France, Gael Monfils has risen from No. 106 to No. 23 following his injury last year. He will now be looking to add another title to his mantle in his debut event in Atlanta.
“I’ve heard so much about Atlanta as an international city which hosted the Summer Olympics,” said Monfils. “It is also a city known for its diversity and a large tennis playing population. I look forward to playing in its unique venue, too.”
The BB&T Atlanta Open is scheduled to take place between July 19-27.
