GAME, SET, MATCH: USOPEN.ORG SEES RECORD TRAFFIC NUMBERS

          The official U.S. Open Web site, www.usopen.org,
     created and co-produced by the USTA and IBM, recorded 382
     million hits and 242 million page views during the two-week
     tournament.  The traffic totals surpassed the marks set at
     this year's French Open and Wimbledon sites, also powered by
     IBM.  The site recorded more page views in the first two
     days of the Open than it did for the entire '97 tournament. 
     Users from 157 countries visited the site, and nearly 60% of
     all visitors were from the U.S.  The peak number of hits
     came on September 8, at 44.7 million, while peak page views
     came on September 2, at 29.2 million. Total visits were 10.3
     million, peaking on September 8 at 1.3 million.  IBM and the
     USTA have renewed their partnership through 2001 (USTA).
