Hosted on the historic grass courts of the International Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport, Rhode Island, the Hall of Fame Tennis Championships is the only ATP World Tour event played in the Northeast and the only pro tournament played on grass courts in North and South America. The tournament draws 32 top male players to Newport direct from Wimbledon to compete for the Van Alen Cup and more than $450,000 in prize money.
This year, the tournament includes an exciting group of American players – including, two-time defending champion John Isner and Sam Querrey, James Blake, Ryan Harrison, Jack Sock, Brian Barker, Rajeev Ram and Michael Russell – along with notable international stars, including Leyton Hewitt. In addition to exciting pro tennis, a highlight of the week will be the Class of 2013 Enshrinement Ceremony on July 13 at which Martina Hingis, Thelma Coyne Long, Cliff Drysdale, Charlie Pasarell, and Ion Tiriac will be honored.
