ATLANTA (AP) - City officials say the Atlanta Tennis Championships will be played next summer on courts to be constructed at Atlantic Station, a residential and shopping district in the city's midtown area.
The tournament's stadium court, where the top matches are played, will be constructed in the district's Central Park, where a Christmas Tree is currently located.
Andy Roddick and former Georgia star John Isner have already committed to the event.
Bleachers seating 4,000 people will be temporarily constructed, closing two streets during the tournament, which will run July 14-22 and was won last year by Mardy Fish.
Trees and plants around Central Park will be moved and then replanted once the event is completed.
City officials say arborists have approved the plan.
