Tournament in L.A. gets new name
LOS ANGELES -- The ATP tournament in Los Angeles is getting a new name.
The 84th edition of the tournament to be played July 26 to Aug. 1 on UCLA's campus will be called the Farmers Classic. The Farmers Insurance Group is moving up from presenting sponsor to title sponsor this year.
The three-year deal between Farmers and the Southern California Tennis Association runs through 2012.
Former Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic and defending U.S. Open winner Juan Martin del Potro are among those scheduled to play this summer.
