West Side Tennis Club gets two new tournaments

March 9, 2004
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) -- Two new pro tennis tournaments will be held this year at the West Side Tennis Club in Forest Hills, the former home of the U.S. Open.

One event is a newly sanctioned WTA Tour hard-court tournament Aug. 23-28, leading into the U.S. Open.

A grass-court USTA Pro Circuit men's challenger June 7-13 will be added to a May 10-16 clay-court challenger that began last year.

The West Side Tennis Club hosted the U.S. Open and its predecessor from 1915-77. The Grand Slam tournament was played there on grass until 1974, then on clay the next three years.
