Game. Set. Match.

There's nothing I love more than food, but throw in a sporting event and I'm one happy girl.

This week (as you know know via my Twitter & Insta) the BB&T Atlanta Open is in town. All the action is going down at Atlantic Station! Atlantic Station is located in the heart of Midtown Atlanta, and provides visitors with endless options for dining, shopping and entertainment. Last night, Allie (of Peachfully Chic) and I decided to grab a bite to eat before the Roddick vs. Tiafoe exhibition match! It had been a while since I'd been to Rosa Mexicano, and we all know how I feel about good guac and a margarita. Rosa's table-side guac is one of my favorite features at the restaurant. Tac on an order of their Chicken Tacos, and you have the makings for a pretty, delicious meal!

Once we were fueled up for the evening, it was time for the "most exciting match in BB&T history! (cue Chris Harrison of The Bachelor/Bachelorette)" Truth be told, I was pumped to see Roddick come out of retirement for this match. He will also being playing doubles with Mardy Fish on Wednesday! The last time I saw Roddick in action, he was playing in his second to last US Open. 

The energy in the air was evident! With Roddick coming out of retirement to face Frances Tiafoe, who is known around the tennis community as the country's next tennis star, the crowd was all eyes as the two took the court.

It was great to see Roddick have fun with the match. Best part hands down was when Wayne Bryan (the Bryan's brothers father) started naming off the tennis greats and Roddick doing impersonations of each. Click HERE for the epic video! Pure gold.

Roddick won the match, but it was great to see how gracious and thankful Tiafoe was to play against his idol. 

Game. Set. Match.

Gearing up for Ladies Day on Thursday! A VIP blogger brunch at STRIP, Q&A with the Bryan brothers and more tennis. Until then, be sure to continue following me Twitter and Instagram for all the #BTS action!
