The BB&T Atlanta Open lost one of its main attractions when the Bryan brothers, Bob and Mike, pulled out Saturday.
Bob suffered a recurrence to an injury in his left shoulder.
The Bryans, the world’s top-ranked doubles team, recently won Wimbledon to complete the Grand Slam. They are also the defending gold-medal winners from the London Olympics.
Monday night’s “Brodown Showdown” will continue as part of the tournament at Atlantic Station. Georgia Tech’s Juan Spir and Kevin King will join Ryan and Christian Harrison, James and Thomas Blake, and Jack and Eric Sock.
Wimbledon finalists Ivan Dodig and Marcelo Melo are now the top-seeded doubles team and will play the Harrisons in the first round.
