With a fair bit less attention and … opinion compared to a similar vote ongoing on the ATP Tour side, the WTA announced two new player representatives to its board of directors.
The first is Croatian Iva Majoli, the former French Open champion and current Croatia Fed Cup captain. Majoli will represent the top 20.
The second is New York lawyer Michael Segal, who has chaired the WTA’s pension committee for 14 years. He will represent the 21–100 players.
They replace Gary Brody (two-year term) and Lisa Grattan (who had been on the board since 1998).
Neither stood for re-election.
