Isner, Bryans, Raonic, Nishikori, Hewitt to headline Campbell’s Hall of Fame Tennis Championships
If a trip to London isn’t in store for you this summer, have no fear--you can catch some of the world’s best tennis players in action right here in New England!
Direct from Wimbledon and just before the Olympics, some of the most exciting players on the ATP World Tour are heading to Newport, R.I. to compete in the Campbell’s Hall of Fame Tennis Championships, which will be hosted July 9 – 15 on the historic grass courts of the International Tennis Hall of Fame.
Headlining the star-studded player field will be current No. 1 American and world No. 10, John Isner, who captured the title at the tournament last year and has had an outstanding run ever since.
"Newport was a great week for me this year, and I look forward to playing there again next summer," said Isner. "It’s a great tournament—good fans and it’s a lot of fun to play in a venue with such an important history as the Hall of Fame."
Joining Isner in this year’s exciting Newport field will be the record setting, 11-time Grand Slam champion doubles team, the Bryan Brothers; world No. 20 and Japan’s No. 1 player, Kei Nishikori; Canada’s No. 1 player Milos Raonic, currently ranked world No. 22; and former world No. 1 Lleyton Hewitt.
A fun-filled schedule of special events top off the action on court including free tennis clinics for all ages, tours through the International Tennis Hall of Fame & Museum, and the annual Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. Wednesday, July 11 will be USTA Member Appreciation Day, featuring complimentary lunch and a gift for all USTA Members.
Of course a highlight of it all will be the annual Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on Saturday, July 14 at 12 p.m. At this grand celebration, the highest honor in tennis will be presented to former world No. 1’s Jennifer Capriati and Guga Kuerten, Spanish tennis star Manuel Orantes, tennis industry innovator Mike Davies, and the late wheelchair tennis champion Randy Snow. On Sunday, July 15 at 10 a.m., new Hall of Famer Guga Kuerten will be back in action with a special Exhibition Match.
