Christina will be in Atlanta for a few days to give us exclusive coverage from the BB&T Atlanta Open. Let's start off with a few photos from this ATP 250 World Tour Tournament's new home, Atlantic Station.

First Impressions of the New Tournament Site
This year's BB&T Atlanta Open is especially unique among tennis tournaments because it is being held in the heart of midtown Atlanta in the outdoor mall of Atlantic Station. The move has been a success - as of last week, ticket sales were up 30 percent from last year. The sponsor tents are right outside the entrance to the tournament so sponsors have the added bonus of attracting not only ticketholders, but people shopping in the Atlantic Station district. It is not often that you will find a tournament's media center between a movie theater and a department store.
