Tournament Director Bob Bryant also announced today that NUSSLI, a leading international supplier of temporary stadiums, will make its U.S. debut with the construction of the BB&T Atlanta Open Stadium Court. NUSSLI will transform the main court with its customized, aluminum modular stadium, forming a bowl with no breaks. For the first time at the tournament, all of Stadium Court’s nearly 4,000 spectators will enjoy individual seats with backs. Lexus Inner Circle and Suite seats will feature padded, tip-up seats.
Headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland, NUSSLI has worked on numerous sporting events, trade fairs and exhibitions across the world, including Davis Cup in Spain, the London Olympics and the FIFA World Cup.
"It is our goal to make each fan’s experience at the BB&T Atlanta Open this year even more entertaining and memorable than last year," Bryant said. "Our focus is on great tennis, a fun festival-like environment, fan comfort and convenience. The new BB&T Atlanta Open Stadium Court will have all the advantages of a permanent seat venue, while still being in one of the most unique sites on the ATP World Tour."
For the first time, the Bryan brothers are scheduled to play the tournament. The Bryans are recognized as the best men’s doubles team of all time, holding records for Grand Slam victories, tour crowns and end-of-year No. 1 rankings. Returning players include two-time champion Mardy Fish, former Georgia Bulldog John Isner and defending doubles titlist Ryan Harrison.
An ATP World Tour event, the BB&T Atlanta Open is the first men’s event in the Emirates Airline US Open Series. Last July, the BB&T Atlanta Open set a new standard for tennis events during its inaugural year at Atlantic Station, which was universally praised as an outstanding site for fans, players and sponsors.
