Winston-Salem - Greensboro's own John Isner and Andy Roddick are two of the big names playing at the Winston-Salem Open this week at the Wake Forest Tennis Center.

The Winston-Salem Open is in its second year of play after being moved from Long Island, NY and New Haven, CT.

The tournament is an ATP World Tour 250 event, and includes men's singles and doubles play.

Isner was the 2011 Winston-Salem Open Champion, and is looking to defend his title this year.

Roddick spoke with News 2 about returning to Winston-Salem, saying, "The first time I played here was 14 years ago now so it's great to come back and I like any city that appreciates tennis. What we do is such a big part of my life so Winston-Salem has proven that and I think that's why the players keep coming."

Second round play will continue on Tuesday, third round play begins Wednesday, the quarterfinals are Thursday, the semifinals are Friday, and the final will be played Saturday at 12:30.

You can watch the final only on News 2.
