Dimitrov, Isner & Opelka To Lead Inaugural Dallas tennis event field

The ATP 250 event from New York is moving to Dallas in 2022 and the first edition in the Texas city will see Isner, Opelka and Dimitrov participate.

The ATP 250 event in New York is moving to Dallas in 2022 and the first edition will see three noted ATP stars take part in it. Former World No. 3 Grigor Dimitrov and Americans John Isner and Reilly will lead the field at the inaugural Dallas Open, to be held from February 6th till February 13th of 2022 at the Styslinger/Altec Tennis Complex at Southern Methodist University.

The trio, which boasts 26 ATP Tour titles between them, brings star power to the Dallas ATP 250, which has relocated from New York. Tournament Director Peter Lebedevs is thrilled with the committed players and the local reaction in Texas. He said:

“The reception the Dallas Open has received from the community thus far has been incredible. We are thrilled to have Grigor, John and Reilly lead our player field and hope to make additional announcements on player commitments in the coming weeks. After quickly selling out of our VIP Boxes and Forty-Love Suite, we are excited to now have individual tickets on sale for fans who want to be a part of the inaugural tournament.”

On the event Isner said:

"It's incredibly nice. It's very lucky for me to have this tournament coming here so close to home. I practise there all the time. I'm lucky in the sense that I kind of have a couple of hometown events. Atlanta is one, and here in Dallas. It's good."
