The Infinite Energy Atlanta Slam is coming back to The Arena at Gwinnett Center on Saturday, December 13 at 6:30 p.m. This family event will feature the 2008 US Open doubles champions and world #1 Bryan Brothers! Bob and Mike Bryan went on to win their 7th Grand Slam doubles title and second US Open championship without dropping one set. This amazing victory recaptured the Bryan Brothers world #1 ranking which they have held for the majority of the past three years. This US Open title came immediately after their Olympic Bronze medal performance.

As a late added bonus, American Idol singer Michael Johns will perform.

Win a meeting with Blake at the tournament. To enter a drawing to meet Blake, USTA Southern member should include the following code when ordering tickets: USTA10S.

The Bryan Brothers will take on Atlanta’s own former French Open champions, the Jensen Brothers, in the “Battle of the Brothers” at the Infinite Energy Atlanta Slam. This night of world class tennis will also feature tennis stars James Blake and Sam Querrey. The 20-year-old American, Sam Querrey is coming off his best Grand Slam appearance ever. Sam reached the fourth round of the championship by defeating seeds Thomas Berdych and 6’10” Ivo Karlovic before eventually falling to world #1 Rafael Nadal in a epic four-set match. This incredible performance by the young American has now earned Querrey the opportunity to represent his country in the Davis Cup. Sam will be taking on American favorite James Blake at the Infinite Energy Atlanta Slam. James who has been a consistent top ten player, recently defeated Roger Federer and went on to make the Olympic semi-finals.

“This will be an unprecedented night of world class tennis, featuring the best of the best in talent with Blake, Querrey, the Bryan Brothers and the Jensen Brothers. It doesn’t get any better than this!” says Trevor Short, president of T & S Events.
