Fish Joined by Harrison, Sock, More at Tallahassee Challenger

April 11, 2013 10:19 AM
Tallahassee_Challenger_logo_generalThe USTA announced a blockbuster line-up for the Tallahassee Tennis Challenger set for April 27-May 4, 2013, including a slew of up-and-coming Americans headlined by Ryan Harrison, Jack Sock, Steve Johnson, defending champion Tim Smyczek and 2011 winner Donald Young.
 
The Tallahassee Tennis Challenger is the third of three events in the Har-Tru USTA Pro Circuit Wild Card Challenge series, which will determine which American male earns a wild card into the 2013 French Open.
 
The field was revealed on the heels of the announcement last week that Mardy Fish, the former world No. 8 and 2006 champion, was awarded a wild card for the $50,000 USTA Pro Circuit event, held at the Forestmeadows Tennis Complex.
 
Thirty-four-year-old Michael Russell is the highest-ranked player on the acceptance list at No. 73. The No. 93-ranked Harrison is making his main draw debut in Tallahassee at 20 years old. His brother Christian is entered on the alternate list for the tournament qualifying. Sock, also 20, enters the Tallahassee field at a career-high No. 119 after a quarterfinals effort in Memphis.
 
Former two-time NCAA champion Johnson, ranked No. 130, leads a host of top college alumni that includes No. 144 Rhyne Williams (Tennessee), 2008 Tallahassee winner and No. 145 Bobby Reynolds (Vanderbilt), No. 189 Bradley Klahn (Stanford), No. 210 Somdev Devvarman (Virginia) and No. No. 213 Tennys Sandgren (Tennessee).
 
Also on the alternate list for the qualifying event are Americans Robby Ginepri, and Floridians Austin Krajicek, Greg Ouellette, Jeff Dadamo, Sekou Bangoura and Jesse Witten.
