Qualifying Rounds – Saturday and Sunday, April 19-20
Main Draw Singles and Doubles – Monday-Sunday, April 21-27
The Landings Club will host the 2014 USTA Savannah Challenger April 19-27. This marks the 6th consecutive year that Har-Tru USTA Pro Circuit Wild Card Challenger has called Savannah home. Last year was a thrilling year with players such as Mardy Fish, Ryan Harrison (2013 Champion), Michael Russell, Jack Sock, Ivo Karlovic, Nicolas Massu (2 time Gold Medalist), Donald Young and many more. This was the strongest field we have ever had at the Savannah Challenger.
The Savannah Challenger and the USTA pro circuit are designed to bring some of the world’s finest tennis players to our city. Challenger tournaments are usually held for ATP players with a world ranking between 40-200 but in the case of last year Mardy Fish entered our tournament ranked in the top 20 in the world.
The USTA Challenger series allows more American players to stay here at home and improve their rankings on the ATP tour. If they are successful in building their rankings they have the opportunity to get directly into the main draw to the higher level tournaments including the Grand Slams. Points earned during the Savannah Challenger count towards the USTA Wildcard entry into the 2014 French Open held in Paris, France in May.
