Tennis: Nastase's presidential manifesto
Wednesday 30 June 1999
The flamboyant Romanian is one of seven candidates in the running for the top job at the International Tennis Federation. Australia's Brian Tobin is resigning as president after eight years and the election will be held at the ITF annual general meeting next week.
"I look at golf, where the players run their game," said Nastase. "I would have people like Becker and Edberg on it and women like Navratilova and Evert. They could make the connection between the ITF and the players. Nowadays I think most players don't know what the ITF is or what it does."
