The Oracle Challenger Series will be held from September 2-8 at the Connecticut Tennis Center.

The tournament will feature the Oracle Champions Cup, a one-night event headlined by Fairfield native, James Blake and includes Andy Roddick, Tommy Haas and Mark Phiippoussis.

There is no cost for the Challenger Series matches, but tickets do have to be purchased for the Champions Cup Legends Night.
