Atlanta loves tennis! It is home to over 1,000 tennis centers and clubs, some of the largest ALTA and USTA chapters in the nation, top ranked university tennis programs and local heroes on the pro circuit. Excitement builds as we prepare for the 2019 BB&T Atlanta Open, held July 20 - 28, 2019 at Atlantic Station. This year, the ATP World Tour 250 event grows from a 2 to 6-acre facility, expands premium seating and shaded viewing areas, and brings more tennis fun for the entire family! Proudly serving as the official orthopedic and sports medicine provider of the 9-day event, OrthoAtlanta physicians, with co-medical directors, Snehal Dalal, MD, and Joseph Wilkes, MD, are the key medical point of contact for the visiting players, coaches, and officials. If you're attending this year's tournament, stop by the OrthoAtlanta booth in the Partner Pavilion to say hello. And, don't miss the annual OrthoAtlanta Ball Toss on Friday night when one lucky spectator will win a $1,000 gift card.

Are you drinking enough water? As warmer weather approaches, summer sun, hot temperatures, and a more active lifestyle become more common. It's recommended that you stay hydrated, especially in hot weather or when engaging in intense physical activity. It is also important to stay hydrated when you are a spectator at an event, from ball games to tennis matches and concerts, sitting for long periods in the hot afternoon sun. Staying hydrated not only boosts your immune system, but it can help prevent other injuries, such as orthopedic injuries. OrthoAtlanta explains some surprising links between dehydration and orthopedic injuries in this article.
