USPTA, Emirates Airline US Open Series Continue Collaboration in 2014

HOUSTON – Once again, the United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA) has partnered with the USTA to make the 2014 Emirates Airline US Open Series available to the USPTA and its members.

The partnership began in 2013 to provide USPTA Professionals access to the U.S.-based tournaments in the Series and was modeled after other successful agreements already in place in Stanford, New Haven and Cincinnati. 

“The tournaments that comprise the Emirates Airline US Open Series not only showcase world champions to the fans, but serve as a platform to cultivate emerging pro tennis talent,” said J. Wayne Richmond, General Manager, Emirates Airline US Open Series.  “This ongoing partnership with the USPTA is truly emblematic of the greater mission of our sport – growing and developing the game at every opportunity.”  

Now in its 11th season, the Emirates Airline US Open Series continues to serve as a true regular season of hard court tennis, linking eight summer tournaments to the US Open.   In 2013, the Series reached more than 30 million television viewers and totaled nearly 400 hours of broadcast coverage throughout the summer on ESPN2, CBS Sports and Tennis Channel.

“Part of our mission at USPTA is to promote the growth of tennis, and it’s imperative to continue supporting these professional tournaments in the U.S.,” said USPTA CEO John Embree. “Our members understand the importance in creating interest with consumers in these events, and since we had such a great response from USPTA members who were able to attend the tournaments last year, we were thrilled to be able to offer this benefit again.”

Rafael Nadal and Serena Williams won the 2013 US Open and Emirates Airline US Open Series men’s and women’s titles, each earning a record tennis paycheck of $3.6 million.
