Federer's agency looking to buy Cincinnati event from USTA

Team8, the sports agency backed by Roger Federer, is “looking to buy the Cincinnati 1000 event from the USTA,” according to Tennis Channel’s Steve Weissman. Tennis Channel’s Andy Roddick noted there are a “number of interested parties” in the Western & Southern Open, though it is “nice to see responsible names in the mix.” Roddick: “In the world of tennis, where conflicts of interest know no bounds at all, Roger can do this. He has, obviously, been a great steward for the game and has created an incredible relationship with the fans in the city of Cincinnati. You’d like to see it stay in the tennis family with someone who actually knows and loves our sport.” Tennis Channel’s Chanda Rubin said, “This has been really a sticking point, trying to keep tournaments in the U.S. Hopefully this would mean that it would stay” (“Tennis Channel Live,” Tennis Channel, 5/12).
