New Haven Open CEO elected to tennis Hall of Fame
Question of the Day
NEWPORT, R.I. (AP) - Mike Davies, the chief executive officer of the New Haven Open tennis tournament, has been elected to the International Tennis Hall of Fame.
A former top player in Great Britain, Davies has spent more than 40 years promoting tennis. He is a former executive director of World Championship Tennis (WCT) and the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) and also served as general manager of the International Tennis Federation (ITF).
The 76-year-old Davies is credited with bringing about the first major network television broadcast of a tennis tournament, introducing colored clothing to a pro tour, and was the first to put chairs on the court during changeovers.
Davies was elected as a contributor to the game. The rest of the class of 2012 will be announced in the next month.
