The 1996 US Open draw controversy

Players Scream, So US Open Officials Hold New Men's Draw

NEW YORK — Reacting to a wave of player criticism and the threat of a boycott, the U.S. Tennis Association on Thursday remade the men's draw for the U.S. Open.

Two-time champion Stefan Edberg, originally drawn to face Jim Courier, still got a tough first-round foe--Wimbledon champion Richard Krajicek.

"That is the ultimate sad irony because those are the two guys, Stefan and Richard, who went in to represent the players' view," said Mark Miles, ATP Tour chief executive officer. "They did it without any view as to whether it helped or hurt them."

The U.S.Tennis Association rejected the players' demand to stay with the ATP rankings, but agreed to remake the draw with the seeds already in place to avoid the appearance of impropriety.

Miles said virtually every player who heard about how the draw was conducted objected because it left open the possibility that the draw could have been rigged to favor certain Americans, notably Michael Chang and Andre Agassi.
