MEN'S TENNIS OFF AUTO PILOT: CT TOURNAMENT SOLD AND MOVED?

          The Pilot Pen Int'l men's tennis tournament has been
     sold to a Kitzbuhel, Austria, investment group, according to
     Greg Garber of the HARTFORD COURANT.  While the official
     announcement is set for today, "several Tennis Foundation of
     Connecticut employees confirmed that the event will not be
     played next August on the campus of Yale University."  The
     women's Pilot Pen, "a modest success in its first year this
     past August, is secure for the near future at least."   The
     "death of the tournament was blamed on the bottom line," as
     tournament execs claim the men's event "lost nearly" $2M in
     two years.  The Kitzbuhel group, "which currently sponsors a
     World Series-caliber event, presumably will upgrade" to a
     Championship Series status (HARTFORD COURANT, 10/8).
