    Alex De Minaur Becomes Youngest-Ever BB&T Atlanta Open Champion

    US Open Series Continues This Week in San Jose and Washington, D.C.;
    Tennis Channel to Feature Weeklong Coverage from Both Events

    July 28, 2019 -- Twenty-year-old Australian Alex De Minaur prevailed in a battle of tennis' rising stars on Sunday, winning the BB&T Atlanta Open singles title over 21-year-old American Taylor Fritz, 6-3, 7-6(2), becoming Atlanta's youngest-ever champion and capping a week in which the 'next generation' of men's tennis further signaled its arrival.

    The 34th-ranked Aussie, making an early case to earn the US Open Series' Breakout Performer distinction ahead of the US Open, became the first player since John Isner in 2017 at Newport -- and Tommy Haas in 2007 in Memphis before that -- to win an ATP title without facing a break point all week. He is also the youngest two-time champion on the ATP Tour this year, having won his first career singles title in Sydney in January.

    De Minaur, Fritz and 21-year-old American Reilly Opelka, who defeated five-time Atlanta champion John Isner in the second round, made it three semifinalists in Atlanta age 21 or younger, the first time that's happened at an ATP tournament since last year's Citi Open in Washington, D.C.

    The US Open Series goes bi-coastal this upcoming week with the Mubadala Silicon Valley Classic WTA Premier event in San Jose, Calif., and the Citi Open, the combined ATP 500 and WTA International tournament in Washington, D.C.

    World No. 7 Elina Svitolina leads a field in San Jose that features seven players ranked in the Top 30, including 2018 US Open Series Breakout Performer Aryna Sabalenka and 17-year old American French Open semifinalist Amanda Anisimova. Venus Williams is a wild-card entry in San Jose, as is CoCo Vandeweghe in what will be her first tournament after a nine-month injury layoff.

    Storylines abound in the nation's capital, with 15-year old American Coco Gauff, in her first tournament since her sensational run at Wimbledon, coming through qualifying to play in the main draw. Gauff joins a women's field with 13 Americans, led by Sloane Stephens and Madison Keys, who are the No. 1 and 2 seeds, respectively. Last year's US Open Series men's Breakout Performer Stefanos Tsitsipas leads a men's singles field that includes seven Top-20 players and 12 Americans, led by John Isner and Frances Tiafoe. Andy Murray, meanwhile, will play doubles with his brother, Jamie, in D.C.

    Tennis Channel has weeklong coverage from both tournaments, beginning at 2 p.m. ET on Monday and carrying through Sunday's finals.

    De Minaur didn't face a single break point in the tournament. It's only the third time that's ever happened since they started keeping those kinds of stats (since 98-02ish?). Haas and Isner are the other two.

    It was only 4 matches, and he faced several of the worst returners on tour, but it's still impressive. He only lost 7 points off his first serve in the entire tournament.

    Imagine what people would say if this happened in a WTA tournament
