Hampton Inn & Suites® Tallahassee Hosted the 2005 USTA Tallahassee Tennis Challenger

Tallahassee, FL. May, 2005 - The Hampton Inn & Suites I-10/Thomasville Road was the host hotel for the the 2005 USTA Tallahassee Tennis Challenger, a men’s $50,000 event in the ATP pro-circuit series. This tournament benefits the D. Mark Vogter, M.D. Memorial Endowment for the Neuro-Intensive Care Unit at Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare. This unit cares for patients of all ages who suffer neurological trauma (such as head injuries, strokes), require surgical intervention for life threatening illnesses (brain tumors, aneurysms), and many other types of patients too numerous to name. Over the last 5 years, the tournament has donated over $112,000 to the endowment at the TMH Foundation.

This year's Challenger had the highest entry level of any $50,000 Challenger held thus far in 2005 and the first player under 100 in the world to play in Tallahassee--Jonas Bjorkman, pictured below. The event was a great success at the new venue of the Forestmeadows Tennis & Athletic Complex.
