Photos from the 2012 Atlanta Tennis Championships which has seen top Americans John Isner, Andy Roddick and Mardy Fish in action.
Isner and Roddick will be heading off to the Olympics straight after this event finishes and the Atlanta organisers are delighted that the duo have opted to use this event as part of their preparation. Having lost in the final two years in a row, Isner will be hoping to finally break his duck this year.
However two-time champion Mardy Fish fell early on in his quest for a hat-trick of Atlanta titles. Fish has endured terrible luck all year with injuries and his streak continued as he rolled his ankle chasing a drop shot during his second round clash with Gilles Muller and was forced to retire.
