The Mountain Challenge brings together two players who have been ranked No. 1 in the world. Roddick held that position following his victory in the 2003 U.S. Open, one of 32 ATP titles in his career. Courier, meanwhile, was the world’s No. 1 player four times in the 1990s. He totaled 23 ATP victories, include four Grand Slam titles.

The UCB Mountain Challenge will also include two preliminary matches. The first is a battle between top-ranked juniors Thai Kwiatkowski of Charlotte and Korey Lovett of Brevard, and the second is a doubles match pairing the winners of a local pro-am versus Roddick/Courier. Other festivities include a Friday evening Mountain Dinner Gala and a Saturday morning VIP breakfast with Roddick and Courier.

Tickets for this unique event go on sale Friday, April 19. Reserved seat tickets are $100. Fans can also choose from an array of luxury box tickets, VIP tickets and group packages.

The matchup is sponsored by United Community Bank. The event is hosted by the Cashiers Area Chamber of Commerce and benefits Mountain Youth Charities.
