EVENT: New Haven Open at Yale to be held August 15-24 at the Connecticut Tennis Center at Yale, has always been much more than a tennis tournament; it is a leading example of leveraging a large-scale international sporting event to generate $26 million in regional economic impact and to grow community pride, spirit and engagement, especially among youth. The women's-only WTA is supported by five Cornerstone Sponsors: Aetna, American Express, First Niagara, Yale, and Yale-New Haven Hospital, and is part of the Emirates Airline US Open Series  .  The New Haven Open is prominently featured domestically on ESPN2 and Tennis Channel and also broadcast in 150 countries around the world.

THE EMIRATES AIRLINE US OPEN SERIES:
Now in it's ninth season, the Emirates Airline US Open Series continues to serve as a true regular season of hard court tennis, linking 10 summer tournaments to the US Open.  Fans follow the action throughout the summer during national broadcast coverage while players battle for $40 million, including a chance for bonus prize money at the US Open.  The Series collectively reached a U.S. television audience of 30 million and drew more than 800,000 on-site fans in 2011.  In 2012, Emirates Airline became the title sponsor of the Series, as well as the offical airline of the US Open.  The Emirates Airline US Open Series is also supported by sponsors American Express, Chase, Citizen Watch Company, Esurance, evian and Gatorade.
 
Americans Mardy Fish and Serena Williams swept the 2011 Emirates Airline US Open Series men's and women's titles.  In 2007, Roger Federer collected the biggest paycheck in tennis history-$2.4 million-for winning the US Open and Emirates Airline US Open Series.  In 2005, Kim Clijsters also captured both the US Open and the Olympus US Open Series, winning $2.2 million--the largest purse in women's sports history--and  equaled that amount in 2010, winning the US Open and finishing the Emirate Airline US Open Series in second place
