New Haven, the final tennis stop prior to the U.S. Open, no longer has a title sponsor or a men's draw, but organizers say they are confident of the tournament's future because it does have a very big name behind it _ Yale University.
New Haven's professional tennis tournament is becoming a women's-only event, with Yale University and a couple of major corporations replacing a single title sponsor.
Some of the top players in tennis are heading to Yale this week for the final tournament before the U.S. Open _ along with representatives of about a half-dozen companies being wooed in an effort to keep the event alive.
"It was just a miracle that we got that final in," Worcester said. "If we had pulled the players one more time, we were going indoors. I wasn't going to pull them, wait and them maybe go back out, maybe go indoors. We were definitely going indoors."
Tournament director Anne Worcester said she also allowed vendors to leave early, tearing down tents and anything else that couldn't handle hurricane-force winds.
