Jon Wertheim: Q&A with the WTA Tour's CEO

The week after Wimbledon, Stacey Allaster was officially named the new CEO of the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour. Since then, a former No. 1 player returned and won the U.S. Open. The Tour's most marketable star blew a gasket in the U.S. Open semifinals, a meltdown that became an international cause célèbre. One Belgian was suspended for an anti-violating simply because she failed to keeps administrator advised of her whereabouts. Another Belgian, a seven-time Grand Slam champ, is returning. And the WTA's title sponsor is, by most accounts, a longshot to renew. Otherwise, it's been an uneventful 150 days.
