WTA TOUR GETS TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER AGAINST BOARD COUP
Published November 20, 1997
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).
