Beyond the Baseline, with Jon Wertheim — Pam Shriver’s Proposal for the USTA

A few weeks after the Australian Open, Pam Shriver joins Beyond the Baseline to discuss the latest tennis news and an outside-the-box proposal for the USTA to augment its place in the sports world and bolster American tennis. After Gordon Smith announced his plans to step down as CEO and executive director of the USTA at the end of the year, Wertheim and Shriver believe that there is an opportunity to reassess and rethink the way the organization is operated. What started as a fun conversation turned into an idea that could actually be feasible and successful, and Shriver and Wertheim lay out the details of their plan, which involves the NBA’s involvement in the organization and management of the USTA.
