Atlanta Tennis Championships

 The Atlanta Tennis Championships is an annual men's tennis tournament that is played in the Atlanta area in the United States.

The tournament was held for the first time in 1988 in Indianapolis, Indiana as the U.S. Men's Hard Court Championships. It was a major tournament of the Grand Prix Tennis Circuit until 1990. It was renamed the RCA Championships and became a hard courts event after the Indianapolis Tennis Center decided to resurface its 18 clay courts with Deco-Turf II, the same surface as the US Open.

The tournament's change in surface and name came with a change of date to be closer to the start of the US Open. The event gained the attention of the world's best players and became a premier warm-up stop for the US Open. In 2009 the Association of Tennis Professionals purchased the license for the tournament in Indianapolis owing to the lack of a title sponsor for 2007 and 2008, at which time its name was simply the Indianapolis Tennis Championships, and a subsequent struggle to attract top players, which led in turn to lower ticket sales. In December 2009 it was announced that the ATP had sold the license to a group in Atlanta, Georgia.
