John McEnroe to Play at the BB&T Atlanta Open
Due to recurring back problems, Andre Agassi has withdrawn from his role in the BB&T Atlanta Open’s 20th anniversary celebration of the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta. Though I’m disappointed in not seeing the rematch, I’m thrilled to be able to see John McEnroe play instead!
The 17-time grand slam singles and doubles champion, John McEnroe will take Agassi’s place at Atlantic Station on July 31.
Agassi won the 1996 gold medal in tennis, and was set to play Sergi Bruguera on Sunday, July 31, but now McEnroe will play in the 7:30 pm exhibition match.
The match will take place as part of the opening weekend of the BB&T Atlanta Open at Atlantic Station. Get tickets now (if you still can)!
