Healy Wins Vote to Take Over From Pollard as Tennis Australia President

Sydney lawyer Stephen Healy was elected to succeed Geoff Pollard as president of Tennis Australia for the next three years.

Healy won a ballot ahead of former Australian Open Chief Executive Officer Paul McNamee in Melbourne today and will assume the role when Pollard steps down in October, the governing body said on its Web site.

Pollard, who’s been president since 1989, defeated McNamee in a ballot in October and announced he would stand down at the end of his 12-month term.
