Tennis HOF Ties '13 Induction Announcement To "World Tennis Day"
The '13 class for the Int’l Tennis HOF will be unveiled and introduced March 4 during a press conference in N.Y. for that night’s exhibition matches at MSG. The exhibition is now part of a larger effort to brand the day around the world as “World Tennis Day,” so the HOF is looking to capitalize on that spotlight. The press conference is scheduled to feature the two female players – Victoria Azarenka and Serena Williams – as well as the two male ones – Juan Martin Del Potro and Rafael Nadal. The HOF last year had five different announcements for each new entrant, and in ‘10 the announcement was made on-court during the MSG exhibitions.
