ATP AND HAMBURG EVENT FAIL TO REACH SETTLEMENT; ANTITRUST TRIAL CONTINUES
By Daniel Kaplan, Staff Writer, SportsBusiness Journal
Organizers of the Hamburg, Germany, tennis tournament and the ATP failed to settle their differences over the weekend as of 8:00pm ET Sunday, a source close to the talks said, and the case was headed to a second week of trial this morning. With a week under its belt, the trial threatens to go longer than its scheduled two weeks, if it gets to the jury, because of delays last Thursday regarding a witness issue and a break for settlement talks.
Today, ATP board director Iggy Jovanovic is expected to finish his testimony, and then expected to testify are Charlie Steeb, the current tournament director in Hamburg, board member Charlie Passarell, and ATP Tour Chair & President Etienne de Villiers.
