Winston-Salem Open - August 19-26, 2017

Now in its seventh year, Winston-Salem proudly hosts the Winston-Salem Open (WSO) at the Wake Forest University Tennis Complex. In December 2016 the Winston-Salem received international attention when the ATP announced the Winston-Salem Open is one of their 2016 ATP World Tour Tournaments of the Year.  

The WSO is the last ATP World Tour 250 event prior to the US Open. Each year more than 40 of the world's top 80 players compete for a chance to be named champion.  Past athletes to play include Sam Querry, Steve Johnson, Pablo Carreno Busta(2016 winner), Jurgen Melzer and John Isner,  a North Carolina native who has won the WSO twice. The Open is held August 19-26, 2017 at the Wake Forest Tennis Complex adjacent to BB&T Field.

Bill Oakes, the Tournament Director of the Winston-Salem Open, said, “If you want to see the next generation of American tennis, the Winston-Salem Open will be the place to be this August,”
