The USTA Pro Circuit Challengers in Hawaii have played a significant role in providing a platform for our American players to break through the top 100 and serve as the gateway towards Grand Slam event success.  Andy Roddick, James Blake, Robby Ginepri and Dimitry Tursonov had the most success after winning singles titles at the Waikoloa Challenger on the Big Island.  Roddick, Blake and Ginepri were members of the Davis Cup soon after their victories and joined the Bryan Brothers, Bob and Mike, in numerous world team events.  Part of the great tradition, the Honolulu Challenger has become an important tournament leg for players returning to the mainland after competing in the Australian Open.

 

Michael Russell and Ryan Harrison have been the most recent champions, 2010 and 2011 respectively, since moving the event to Oahu.  Donald Young competed in 2010, giving us a glimpse of his struggle to rebound and before his tremendous performance at 2011 US Open in the quarterfinals. The event is currently supported and organized by the USTA Hawaii Pacific Section.
Other players that have competed in Hawaii’s Challenger events include Michael Chang, Paradorn Srichaphan, David Nalbandian, Taylor Dent, Paul Goldstein, Vince Spadea, Robert Kendrik and Jan-Michael Gambill.

ABOUT THE USTA PRO CIRCUIT:

With approximately 90 tournaments hosted annually throughout the country and prize money ranging from $10,000 to $100,000, the USTA Pro Circuit is the pathway to the US Open and tour-level competition for aspiring tennis players and a frequent battleground for established professionals. The USTA launched its Pro Circuit 33 years ago to provide players with the opportunity to gain professional ranking points, and it has since grown to become the largest developmental tennis circuit in the world, offering nearly $3 million in prize money. Last year, more than 1,000 men and women from more than 70 countries competed in cities nationwide. Mardy Fish, Maria Sharapova, Andy Roddick, Caroline Wozniacki, James Blake, Li Na and Andy Murray are among today’s top stars who began their careers on the USTA Pro Circuit.
