The Austin Aces recently named Gregory Gymnasium on The University of Texas at Austin campus as their new home venue for the 2015 Mylan World TeamTennis season and will continue their “Summer of Love” with their home opener tonight, July 16, against the California Dream. In honor of their inaugural season at Gregory Gym, we’re throwing it back to July 2011 when a portion of the 2011 Davis Cup was played right here in the Erwin Center.

On July 8-10, 2011, over 40,000 guests filled our arena over the three day period for the exciting quarterfinal round of the Davis Cup between the United States and Spain.
