AMERITECH DROPS SPONSORSHIP OF CHICAGO WTA EVENT

          Ameritech on Friday dropped its sponsorship of the WTA
     Tour's Chicago event, according to Len Ziehm of the CHICAGO
     SUN-TIMES.  Ameritech informed tournament owner IMG that it
     would not renew its three-year agreement to sponsor the
     tournament known most recently as the Ameritech Cup.  Though
     a new sponsorship agreement was not announced, IMG Senior
     VP/Tournament Manager Gary Swain said the tournament "will
     continue on an annual basis."  Swain: "Everything is going
     to be fine.  We will sign a new sponsor.  Several companies
     are very interested" (CHICAGO SUN-TIMES, 11/22).
