John Isner – Loyal Q
John Isner is the most successful player in the history of the BB&T Atlanta Open, having won the tournament a record four times. He’s a game changer on the court, just like the Gamechanger sandwich at Loyal Q – sliced brisket topped with smoke house sausage, fresh jalapeños and home made pickled onions on a bun.
The Bryan Brothers – Foundation Social Eatery
Two time BB&T Atlanta Open doubles champs, the Bryan Brothers are a crowd favorite at the BB&T Open – the same way Roswell (and Atlanta foodies in general) feel about Foundation Social Eatery. The Brothers, who have great personalities, match the two owners of Foundation – a husband and wife couple who are as welcoming as their food.
Madison Keys vs. Sloane Stephens – Bhojanic vs Chai Pani
Like the two young American stand-out tennis players, both Bhojanic and Chai Pani bring top talent and differing styles to the tournament. Sloane Stephens is known for a calm approach, and rarely making unforced errors. Similar to Stephens, Bhojanic is never aggressive – their homestyle Indian cooking always makes you feel comfortable. Madison Keys, on the other hand, is known for the power she puts into her shots – much like Chai Pani’s powerful flavors in their Indian street food inspired restaurant.
Nick Kyrgios – Tazikis Mediterranean Cafe
The son of a Greek father, Nick Kyrgios brings a ton of flavor to the court – much like his Lavor Cup captain and friend John McEnroe. The Mediterranean spice Kyrgios shows at every tournament matches the influences you’ll find in each each gyro, grilled meat and dip at Taziki’s.
Frances Tiafoe – Farmburger
Frances Tiafoe knows fast service – his service speeds have been clocked in at 142 mph. And if you’re in the crowd, that service merits a positive reaction. Much like Farmburger, where you can get a delicious, grass-fed beef burger made your way – all done as fast as one of Tiafoe’s serves.
