Recognizing our 10th year sponsoring championship tennis in Atlanta, OrthoAtlanta is proud to serve as the official orthopedic and sports medicine provider of the 2019 BB&T Atlanta Open tennis tournament. An ATP World Tour 250 event held annually in Atlanta, Georgia, the 9-day tournament will be held in a new, more spacious location in Atlantic Station, Midtown, Atlanta, from July 20 – 28, 2019.

Known for its World-Class Field and World-Class Fun, the BB&T Atlanta Open is tournament level tennis, and one of the premiere tennis events of the Association of Tennis Professionals. The BB&T Atlanta Open has welcomed over 330,000 fans to Atlantic Station over the past nine years, establishing itself as one of the top ATP Tour tennis events in the U.S. The BB&T Atlanta Open is the first event in the tournament series leading up to the U.S. Open. The tournament features men's top world tennis players in singles and doubles competition.

Assuring a star-studded summer of tennis in Atlanta, the 2019 BB&T Atlanta Open will include defending champion and five-time champion, John Isner, battling for his 6th championship. The most decorated doubles team of all time, the Bryan Brothers, Bob and Mike Bryan, make a return visit. On Sunday, July 21, a women’s Sunday Showdown match will feature seven-time singles major champion Venus Williams and 2017 US Open finalist Madison Keys. On Monday night, July 22, former US Open Champion, ATP World Tour No.1 and BB&T Atlanta Open champ, Andy Roddick will take on rival and metro Atlanta resident Robby Ginepri, in the lead up to an incredible week of championship play.

OrthoAtlanta is proud to serve as the official orthopedic and sports medicine provider to the BB&T Atlanta Open, a role it has held since 2010 when the tournament first returned to the Atlanta market. OrthoAtlanta also served in a sports medicine capacity to the tournament when it was known as the AT&T Challenge. During the tournament, the players, coaches and officials rely on OrthoAtlanta to provide superior sports medicine expertise and service throughout the event which typically spans nine days.

Each year, OrthoAtlanta is actively involved in the medical operations planning and staffing plan which takes place in early spring. These efforts come together during the mid-summer event when OrthoAtlanta provides training room set-up, medical staffing, and injury evaluations and treatment throughout the event. Orthopedic services that are provided by OrthoAtlanta include physical therapy, examinations, non-operative treatments, consultation with the athletes and their coaching staff and referral to outside specialists when necessary.

OrthoAtlanta shares the excitement of world-class tennis with the Atlanta community as sponsor of the annual Friday Night Ball Toss for a chance to win a $1,000 gift card, special promotional items available at the OrthoAtlanta booth in the Partner Pavilion, and behind-the-scenes news and photos shared on OrthoAtlanta social media sites in the lead up to the tournament and throughout the event.
