USTA RESISTS BID BY ATLANTA TO FLUSH THEM OUT OF QUEENS
Published November 21, 1994
USTA President J. Howard Frazer said, while his organization is grateful for Atlanta's interest in hosting the U.S. Open, "we have a contract with the city of New York, and we believe it's in the best interests of the tournament, the city and the fans that we stay here." Frazer did confirm that the cost of a new facility will exceed the original $180M "ceiling," but added that construction on the 23,000-seat stadium was expected to be completed in time for the '97 Open (N.Y. TIMES, 11/19).
