Atlanta, Georgia- US Olympic and Davis Cup team members will headline The Atlanta Tennis Classic on September 25th, at 6pm at  The Atlanta Athletic Club, 1930 Bobby Jones Drive, Johns Creek, GA. The world’s No. 1 ranked doubles team of Mike and Bob Bryan, along with the No. 1 ranked American singles player, John Isner, and ATP Tour star Sam Querrey, will headline the event benefitting Mercy Care.

The event will feature a singles match between John Isner and Sam Querrey followed by a doubles match featuring the Bryan Brothers against Isner and Querrey.  After that, The Bryan Brothers’ Band will entertain event patrons and sponsors in a live concert.

“This will be a great day of world class tennis, music and family entertainment,” said Jeff Chandley, Director of Tennis.  “These players have very few days off and we feel very fortunate that they are coming to AAC to share their time and talent.”

The Bryan Brothers have won over 100 ATP Titles including all four Grand Slams, and in 2012 captured the Gold Medal at The Summer Olympic games in London.

John Isner is currently the number one ranked American tennis player in the World.  The former Georgia Bulldog played the longest match in the history of professional tennis in 2010 with a 6-4,3-6,6-7,7-6,70-68 victory at Wimbledon that lasted 11 hours and 5 minutes.

Sam Querrey has won seven ATP Tour singles titles and has been ranked as high as 17th in the world.  He has served as a member of both the US Olympic and Davis Cup teams.  Querrey holds the ATP Tour record for the most consecutive aces with 10 aces against fellow American James Blake.

Since the 1980s, Mercy Care has been a healing presence among Atlanta's homeless and uninsured populations by being a reliable provider of high quality integrated care. In the tradition of the Sisters of Mercy, care reflects an understanding of and respect for vulnerable patients. As access and coverage inequities persist, a growing number of families and individuals rely on Mercy Care, a Federally Qualified Health Center, to meet their primary healthcare needs. A network of 9 fixed site and 5 mobile clinics provide excellent medical care and are staffed with a mix of employed and volunteer physicians, dentists, dental hygienists, medical assistants, nurse practitioners, registered nurses and optometrists. By providing a healthcare home for patients, Mercy Care alleviates the burden on hospital emergency rooms throughout metro Atlanta.

In addition to primary care, an array of critical wraparound services including dental and vision care, radiology, prenatal education, behavioral health, HIV and homeless case management services are available. Mercy Care’s dedicated staff, tireless volunteers and caring donors are a vital part of the city’s medical safety net, catching those who fall through the cracks of mainstream healthcare. As one staff member commented, "We give our clients hope. This may be the best medicine of all."

In 2014, Mercy Care had over 48,000 encounters with clients and patients of whom 65% were experiencing homelessness and 85% are living at or below the Federal poverty level. Less than 8% of Mercy Care's $15 million budget came from net patient revenue. For the remainder Mercy Care relied on compassionate donors, grantors and partners to support our mission.
