One week after his appearance as the men’s wild card in the 2016 Windy City Open presented by Guggenheim Partners & Equitrust, Team USA’s Chris Hanson travels to the southeast where he is the 2016 Life Time Atlanta Open two seed this weekend.
The $10,000 main draw begins play Thursday at 5pm ET at Life Time Athletic in Sandy Springs, Georgia. Follow live scores throughout the weekend on U.S. Pro Series Live.
Hanson initially entered the draw as the three seed, but two seed Arturo Salazar was forced to withdraw, shifting the draw in Hanson’s favor. The Dartmouth graduate is seeded to face Mexico’s Eric Galvez in the semifinals, and a predicted final against Qatar’s one seed Abdulla Mohd Al Tamimi.
The twenty-five-year-old moved up the world rankings from world No. 75 to No. 73 in March, and is poised to reach what would be just his second career PSA final.
Two rounds of qualifying complete the main draw by Wednesday night.
