This is hardly "news," in that most of us assumed it would happen, but the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour has named Stacey Allaster as the new chairwoman and CEO of the tour. (Only the equality-minded tour, of course, refers to her as a chairman).
Allaster has been president of the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour since 2006. She was chosen for her new position as a result of an international search.
I'm sure many of us have a list of concerns we'd love to hand to Allaster. Here's hoping someone who matters will have such a list and that Allaster will take it seriously.
