Bublik, currently ranked world No. 39, comes to Newport off a stellar run into the doubles final at the French Open. He tops a strong player field that features five Americans inside the ATP Tour’s top 100, along with a compelling mix of Newport veterans and bright young talent from around the globe.

“The International Tennis Hall of Fame is thrilled to welcome players and fans back to the Hall of Fame Open in 2021,” said Tournament Director Brewer Rowe. “After last year’s hiatus, we are ready to host the kickoff to the summer season of pro tennis in the US and to welcome the ATP Tour back to Newport.

“We are working closely with the ATP Tour and the State of Rhode Island to host the event in a healthy and safe manner for all involved and for our local community. We are looking forward to a great week of tennis and to crowning champions on the historic Hall of Fame grass courts”, stated Rowe, who is marking his first year as Tournament Director.

International Tennis Hall of Fame CEO Todd Martin, who has served as Tournament Director since 2015, is now in the role of Tournament Chairman.

The Hall of Fame Open will be held July 11 – 18, 2021. Hosted directly after Wimbledon, the tournament kicks off the US Open Series, as the first pro event in the United States for the summer season.

Tickets are on sale now on HallofFameOpen.com/tickets, including more seats than ever before available in under shaded cover. Before the tournament begins, you can play on the Hall of Fame’s historic lawns by renting a court.
