The Savannah Challenger is the premiere professional tennis event in south Georgia attracting some of the top names on the ATP Tour. 2014 will be the 6th year of the Savannah Challenger hosted at Savannah’s beautiful island community The Landings Club. This years event is shaping up to look like one of our finest ever with night matches being added for the first time. Kids Day and Ladies Day will again be action packed in 2014 and for our sponsors we have upgraded our VIP section. You are not going to want to miss this years event as the atmosphere will be electric with lights, music, live streaming and much more. It will be an event that is a must to attend if you are within a few hours of The Landings Club.
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 has seen players such as John Isner, James Blake, Kei Nishikori, Robbie Ginepri and many others come through and play on our courts.
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.
