Curley Leaves as U.S. Open Tennis Director After Rainy Decade

Feb. 10 (Bloomberg) -- Jim Curley stepped down from his position as tournament director of the U.S. Open, ending a decade-long tenure running the biggest tennis event in the U.S.

Curley, who will remain a consultant to the United States Tennis Association through the 2012 U.S. Open, was replaced by his former deputy, David Brewer, the USTA said today in a news release.

“It has been a privilege to lead the USTA’s efforts in professional tennis,” Curley said in a statement. “My decision to step down after more than 10 years was a difficult one, but I believe it is time for a change.”

Curley’s last year running the U.S. Open included rain delays and criticism from top players about how USTA officials handled the event.

The tournament at New York’s National Tennis Center, which doesn’t have a retractable roof on any court, was pushed to a Monday finish for the fourth straight year because of the weather.

Brewer, a member of the USTA for 14 years, also will oversee the organization’s professional tennis operations.
