Question of the Day
INDIAN WELLS, CALIF. (AP) - Raymond Moore has become chief executive officer of the Indian Wells Tennis Garden and the BNP Paribas Open, the joint ATP-WTA pro event played every March in the Southern California desert.
Moore, who has been involved with the event for 25 years as a former owner and managing partner, will continue to be directly involved overseeing the operations of the tournament and the venue while reporting to Oracle Corp. co-founder and CEO Larry Ellison, who owns both the tourney and the venue. Moore is a former South African Davis Cup player.
Steve Simon will continue in his role as BNP Paribas Open tournament director and chief operating officer of the Tennis Garden.
In March, former pro player Charlie Pasarell left his management post with the tournament after 31 years to develop a resort in Puerto Rico.
