The Atlanta Open is an ATP 250 outdoor hard-court competition. It is held at the Atlantic Station in the downtown area of Atalanta after the venue moved from Atlanta Athletic Club in 2012. In 2010, the Atlanta Open took the place of the now-defunct Indianapolis Open, which took place between 1987 and 2009. The event in Atlanta has taken place ever since.

Moreover, it is part of the US Summer Series in professional tennis. This series of competitions in North America provides warm-up events for players before they compete in the US Open in September. Before moving to the Atlantic Station area in Atlanta, the tournament had different venues and alternative names too.

In a bid to work alongside sponsors, the competition has had several names. These include the BB&T Atlanta Open and the Truist Atlanta Open. But, in 2021, the competition restored its original name and is now called the Atlanta Open. Due to its ATP 250 status, the Atlanta Open hosts a 32-player singles draw and a simultaneous 16-team doubles event.

Since 2010, both the singles and doubles competitions have been dominated by US players. The first six singles finals were won by US players, with Mardy Fish, Andy Roddick, and John Isner lifting the title. Between 2013 and 2021, Isner was particularly dominant as he won a record six titles in this spell.

Other former winners include Australians Alex de Minaur and Nick Kyrgios. In addition,10 of the 13 doubles finals have featured a winning American player at the Atlanta Open. However, the all-American duo of Bob and Mike Bryan have won the most doubles titles in Atlanta. The siblings won the competition twice in 2015 and 2017.
