USTA TAKES A SECOND SERVE AT NAMING NEW U.S. OPEN STADIUM
Published February 14, 1997
"Strong protests" from the tennis community have forced the USTA's board of directors to reconsider its decision to name its new U.S. Open facility USTA Stadium, instead of in memory of Arthur Ashe, according to Doug Smith in USA TODAY. Last month, USTA President Harry Marmion said the board advised Ashe's widow, Jeanne Moutoussamy-Ashe, that the 23,000-seat facility would be named USTA Stadium. But Marmion now says that the board will meet Sunday and Monday in Atlanta to "reconsider" the name (USA TODAY, 2/14).
