Overview

“We’ve always been lucky that the top women players prefer to play into form as opposed to practicing into form,” says tournament director Anne Worcester, who attracts big names to the campus of Yale University each August. Once an ATP and WTA event, New Haven—dubbed “the calm before the storm of New York” by 2005 champion Lindsay Davenport—has hosted Kim Clijsters, Maria Sharapova, Ivan Lendl, Andre Agassi and John McEnroe. A poster promoting the 2005 edition hangs in the media center: There’s Daniela Hantuchova (“The Cover Girl”), Elena Dementieva (“The Sweetheart”), Tommy Haas (“The Stud”) and, best of all, James Blake—“The Harvard Guy.”
