Nashville a likely spot pre US Open

With the New Haven license sold to Asia (for $15 million), the race has been on to fill the void.

We’re told Nashville (Vanderbilt University) is the likely destination for a replacement tournament, although it was supposed to be announced last month.

Nashville does have some WTA history.

As well, a group led by Jerry Solomon (whose company ran those Madison Square Garden exhibitions) wants to buy the Quebec City tournament and move it to that same pre-US Open week.

The Chicago Challenger, held the second week of the US Open, won’t return there in 2019.
