Eddie Gonzalez - Truist Atlanta Open Tournament Director
May 26, 2020
Roger Manis

Recently, the Truist Atlanta Open Tennis Tournament, a premiere event of the ATP Tour, was cancelled due to the pandemic.

We talk with Tournament Director Eddie Gonzalez about the impact of that setback, but there is good news as well. 

Despite this 2020 cancellation, the tournament has incredible positive momentum toward 2021. With a fantastic venue, a large tennis fan base, and, of course, great tennis, the Truist Atlanta Open is an important part of the Atlanta sports landscape.

The 10th anniversary wasn't quite what they had hoped, but there are brighter days ahead for the tournament!
