Coco Gauff spent many of her young tennis years playing in Atlanta.

In 2021, she added a second singles title to her name and reached the quarterfinals of the French Open. Gauff was added to the U.S. Olympic team in June 2021, but didn’t play. She is currently ranked No. 15 in singles and No. 10 in doubles.
“It will be great to be back in Atlanta and play in front of friends who haven’t been able to see me play professionally yet in my early career,” explained Gauff. “I feel a connection to the Atlanta community and its great tennis fans."

College Night “Buzz”
College Night 2022 is setting up to be one of the biggest yet. Georgia Tech men’s tennis team member, Andres Martin has been awarded the main draw singles wildcard this year.
"College Night, Tuesday, July 26, is always a highlight of Atlanta Open week,” offered Gonzalez. “With the popularity of college sports in the Metro Atlanta area and around the state of Georgia, it's always fun to watch a local college star play one of the best players in the world. We always have "College Night" themed specials and a few surprises thrown in for fans."
Opening the night session of Tuesday, July 26, Martin will face an ATP pro in the featured singles match.
Martin, from Flowery Branch, Ga. finished his redshirt sophomore regular season campaign and has been ranked as high as No. 9 in the ITA singles rankings earning ACC Co-Men’s Tennis Player of the Week on February 15 after beating the then No. 25 ranked Phillip Henning. During the fall season, Martin won the singles draw of the ITA Southeast Regionals. He also is part of the doubles tandem that has ranked as high as No. 3 in the ITA doubles rankings earning ACC Doubles Team of the Week on March 22 after earning the highest ranked doubles win in the conference that week. During the fall season, Martin/Marcus McDaniel won the doubles draw of the ITA Southeast Regionals and made it to the semifinals of the ITA Fall Nationals.
This is not Martin's first time playing in the Atlanta Open. In 2021, Martin and fellow Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket, Keshav Chopra received a wildcard into the main draw of the doubles and lost a close first round match.
Gonzalez adds, “The Georgia Tech Football team or men’s basketball team are not able to play against the Atlanta Falcons or Hawks, other than an exhibition. Andres gets to play for real against top ATP World Tour professionals from around the world, as our College Night feature match!”
