It demonstrates a commitment to tennis as a sport and the University’s overall commitment to excellence. Wake Forest and the Winston-Salem Open will be the focal point of tennis in the Carolinas. The seating is the finishing touch on a larger vision to bringing a US Open quality experience to tennis viewing in the Carolinas. We will be on the map."
