SBJ missed mark with U.S. Open photo

Wonderful coverage on the USTA in your “The Golden Open” issue (Aug. 27-Sept. 2). I was dismayed, however, when reading [the] article starting on Page 28. The large photo features six people. All three white men were featured with bold, colorful names/titles on the photo and yet the three women were listed as “Also Pictured” below the photo in very small font size.

Women should not be overshadowed, overlooked or relegated to second class stature in this way! These women, in particular, are accomplished, powerful, influential women — Jeanne Moutoussamy-Ashe, Billie Jean King and Katrina Adams. I hope the Sports Business Journal does not slight any women like this in the future.
