WTA TOUR GETS TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER AGAINST BOARD COUP

          The Corel WTA Tour has taken legal action against the
     "internal coup" that took place within the Players
     Association, according to Robin Finn of the N.Y. TIMES.  A
     temporary restraining order "against the revamped Players
     Association has been obtained by 18 plaintiffs" including
     Martina Hingis, Steffi Graf and Monica Seles.  That means
     "the recently ousted board members who had represented the
     players on the tour board will retain their voting rights
     for this week's meetings."  The board "is expected to review
     five new candidates" for the tour's CEO spot after Anne
     Person Worcester leaves at year's end (N.Y. TIMES, 11/19).
