Jim Curley is stepping down as tournament director for tennis’ US Open, a post he’s held since 2001.
The US Tennis Association announced Curley’s move Friday. He will stay on as a consultant through this year’s Grand Slam tournament, which runs Aug. 27 through Sept. 9.
Curley says he believes ”it is time for a change.”
Deputy tournament director David Brewer will take over as tournament director and oversee the USTA’s professional tennis operations. Brewer will report directly to USTA executive director Gordon Smith.
