WTA LOOKS TO REGAIN STABILITY AFTER TUMULTUOUS TIME
Published September 21, 1994
In New York, Robin Finn recounts the turbulent times in women's tennis during and since the US Open. Despite withstanding IMG's unsuccessful "takeover" of the WTA Tour, Finn points out all may not be well: "Some WTC members believe IMG scared away a title sponsor that had been just a signature away from a deal, and IMG suspects there was never a deal to spoil." New WTA CEO Anne Person Worcester "did admit that IMG's pressure tactics provided the impetus for some speedy changes at the top, which also led to a revision of the bylaws ... and empowers the CEO to run the tour and implement policy on a daily basis." Worcester said she understands IMG's frustrations and plans to address format changes for '96, adding that keeping them "in the fold" is best for women's tennis (N.Y. TIMES, 9/21).
