Brewer is US Open’s outgoing tournament director

David Brewer, who grew up in Jefferson City, is the US Open’s outgoing tournament director. He has worked at the USTA for 22 years and has helped lead the world’s largest sporting event since 2012. He congratulates U.S. Open champion Serena Williams, who shares the Open Era record for most titles won (six) at the US Open with Chris Evert. The 2019 event is currently underway. – SUBMITTED

David Brewer, a product of Jefferson City schools, Carson-Newman University and perhaps the best non-club tennis group ever, is Chief Professional Tournaments Officer and U.S. Open Tournament Director. Currently, he is helping host the world’s largest sporting event – or, as he and colleagues joke, “the USTA’s big bake sale at the end of every summer.”

The two-week U.S. Open Tennis Tournament, held at the United States Tennis Association’s Flushing Meadows complex in New York City, will draw almost 750,000 fans before it wraps up Sunday-week. The final Grand Slam event each year, it’s the oldest of the sport’s majors and the only one held continually since it began, in 1881.
