“I know that Bob, Mike and Sam are all looking forward to returning to play in Nashville, however as a player who grew up playing in the USTA Southern Section it is very special to me to return to one of my favorite cities in the world,” said John Isner, the #1 ranked American in the world.  “It is also an honor to help support an event that helps support the Gilda’s Club Nashville and all the great work they do on behalf of cancer patients and their families.”
