ATHENS -- Georgia's Ignacio Taboada and Nathan Pasha have been awarded bids to the 2012 BB&T Atlanta Open to be held July 14-22 at Atlantic Station.

Taboada earned a main draw doubles wild card berth with Georgia Tech's Kevin King, while Pasha will compete as a wild card in the singles qualifying draw.

Last year, Wil Spencer earned a spot in the qualifying draw and won his opening round match. In doubles, former Bulldog Drake Bernstein and King knocked off the No. 1 seeds and defending champions Scott Lipsky and Rajeev Ram.

Taboada recently concluded his collegiate career with a 100-37 singles record, including a 35-11 mark in 2011-12. A native of Atlanta, Taboada reached the finals of the ITA Southeast Regional and was voted to the All-SEC second team. He earned SEC Tournament MVP honors after clinching the Bulldogs' win over Kentucky in the final.

Pasha finished his freshman season with a 34-8 overall record and a 23-2 mark in dual matches. He was voted ITA Southeast Region Rookie of the Year and was the SEC Freshman of the Week four times. The Atlanta native was also voted to the All-SEC Freshman Team.

Former Georgia standout John Isner, who is slated to compete in the tournament again this year, reached the singles final of the Atlanta Tennis Championships in each of the last two years.

The BB&T Atlanta Open is the first men's event in the Emirates Airline US Open Series.
