S. open and and I would tell you in in my role as as a commercial head for this organization the fact that we are a dual gender of them is a huge part of our commercial success men watch women women watch man women bring men men bring women TV ratings are comparable or attendance is fifty fifty male female argue worship is fifty fifty male female it also changes the nature of our event and that's when you come on site can you see the fine dining and shopping and the beverages and all of the offerings that are available that's a reflection of who our audience is it's very different than going to a traditional sporting event in the US please tell me what the secondary market tells you about what fans want. you know this that we we pay a lot of attention to the secondary market we have an analytics team that is is tracking movements on the secondary market it's it's it's very indicative of player popularity it's very indicative of match ups in interest as as we start to see people speculating about Serena moving forward and and you will see movement there we don't necessarily participate in that secondary transaction but it's certainly indicative and and as we go forward to next year that information is very helpful as we start to think about pricing and demand it's also very helpful for us to determine pricing levels for different seats so overall tell me about the money situation out of this year's U. S. open you are the chief revenue officer how's the revenue yeah we're we're we're in a very good position this year our attendance is is historically high our our food and beverage numbers in our merchandise sales numbers which are often tied to our tent its numbers is tracking in a in a similar fashion sponsorship has been has been strong for for this year but as you would six suspect. many of our revenue sources are tied into long term multi year contract sponsorship our broadcast deals are are long term. the the variables from year to year are really a function of ticketing and hospitality sales and then the the the the sale of food and beverage in and March on site and and this year because of the record crowds because of the the strong weather all of that his his sort of conspired to at to paint a very good picture for us as we move into the final days of the event is it safe to assume that you latter your sponsorships how many will come due at any one time. yeah we're we're very thoughtful and intentional in terms of how we line up terms both for our broadcast partnerships and for a sponsorship chart we never want to have too much risk at any particular time so we try to tear our partnerships at the same time were also mindful of categories and where there may be opportunities to have a clear shot at a category that could be consolidating or or something of of that nature so there's there's a lot of thought and design that goes into our thoughts about term and that may very depending on the on the the business order category whether it be broadcast or or sponsorship that are typically built on on long term deals this year chief revenue officer for the U. S. TA thank you you're so kind to take time and talk with us we really do appreciate it. I I always enjoy it it it's clear that you're following the event you're interested in the baton and we think that's terrific and we appreciate the opportunity to talk with Lou brought up the nineteen seventy three match between.

S. open you are the chief revenue officer how's the revenue yeah we're we're we're in a very good position this year our attendance is is historically high our our food and beverage numbers in our merchandise sales numbers which are often tied to our candidates numbers is tracking in a in a similar fashion sponsorship has been has been strong for for this year but as you would six suspect. many of our revenue sources are tied into long term multi year contract sponsorship our broadcast deals are are long term. the the variables from year to year really a function of ticketing and hospitality sales and then the the the the sale of food and beverage in and March on site and and this year because of the record crowds because of the the strong weather all of that his his sort of conspired to to to paint a very good picture for us as we move into the final days of the event is it safe to assume that you latter your sponsorships how many will come due at any one time. yeah we're we're very thoughtful and intentional in terms of how we line up terms both for a broadcast partnerships and for a sponsorship chart we never want to have too much risk at any particular time so we try to tear our partnerships at the same time were also mindful of categories to where there may be opportunities to have a clear shot at a category that could be consolidating or or something of of that nature so there's there's a lot of thought and design that goes into our thoughts about term and that may very depending on the on the the business or the category whether it be broadcast or or sponsorship that are typically built on on long term deals this year chief revenue officer for the U. S. T. A. thank you you're so kind to take time and talk with us we really do appreciate it. I I always enjoy it if it's clear that you're following the event you're interested in the baton and we think that's terrific and we appreciate the opportunity to talk with Lou brought up the nineteen seventy three match between. Bobby Riggs and Billie Jean King delivering it up did you bring no he is the first step and then you of course you have you noticed that my my legs started shaking causes like I remember I remember what we tell you how you might only go to the seventies. I I was I yeah. this did my mother and father and now I'm so I hate to say it I'm sorry they could have cared less about tennis what. they were going to watch this were they ready for the same notes are added no my mom was like you go in there and handle your business and Billie Jean King and it's like and she did my takeaway simple when you're Rome those grounds man I love the basketball size tennis ball I love that thing you see kids academy everywhere they take on the practice courts to get inside whoever came up with that idea we got to find out who whose idea was the big fluffy tennis ball I I love it and then we ask what's the best seller the grey goose.

"Right. Yeah. Pretty much. Mix. Those granted I will go and join a weightlifting team as as a female, I'll go enjoy arm. Wrestling team is a female, I'll go join the softball team is a female, although of played ball longtime might be more difficult than other moulder. But the even today fifty two I will outlive, the female weightlifters. I'm telling you right now that will happen. Now, this isn't me making challenge like Bobby Riggs and Billie Jean King. This isn't me saying I'm gonna take on the the top tennis player in the world as an old guy and show, you can beat you. This is me saying I'm in the gym all the time, and I see people lifting weights and the women even the most inch shaped women aren't lifting. What I lift out of here to tell you Eddie college weightlifter will not build outlive me. Are there some women at my gym that could be think there's something outlive me by a lot depending on what the with the exercise is like doing squats? I can't I can't go anywhere near what I used to do. But it's no woman in there. The strongest one who is out bench pressing me period. Ain't happening. And it's not a denigration of women. I happen to have to stop throwing with me. Thick bones thick bustle bodies or bellies. And that's just the way. It is nothing wrong with that by the way. Right. But if there's a guy who wants to compete and win all he does. He's not what are you guys? All he has to say, he's a woman and in our society today, we're supposed to shut our faces and just accept it. Following right? Yes. And the biological females. You know, what are they gonna do? They have no recourse, like I said, they're not getting rid of discrimination. They're handing on putting it on the shoulders of the female athletes who have to convene against these guys who now identify as girls. It doesn't make any sense not even a little bit not even a tiny bit. It's edited eight nine four one pag joepags. Then you might say, well, then how do trains gendered 's people have made this decision. I make a decision was made this way. Now, you were made whatever the Bilo biology says, and then there's a mental disconnect that we've talked about any times in this show. And I look I've got compassion for the confusion. But that's really what it is. So how do I get to compete? Why am I now the bigotry of our society says I can't compete? I got a couple of options compete against those were the same biological sex. Or start a Thirdly this for transgenders and by the way, it would not be for transgendered men because those those folks were born biologically female, and they won't be able to compete with the biological men. Who say they're not women. It would have to only be league for biological men who are living their lives as women and money being funny about that should happen. If that does happen you'll be able to compete, you call whatever you wanna call it. But to suggest that men only have to say as like a sentence. I'm a woman. Can now compete against the women. That is a denigration in a breakdown in our societal look at women having the ability to to live without bigotry and discrimination. Carry really nailed it to best point you made a long time.

"I still make the offshore. Richard. So that was. Her response coming hours after Trump told Pelosi in a sarcasm Laden letter that he was making plans to be there on time on schedule and very importantly on location. Pelosi's moved seeming to catch the president off guard. It's really a shame. What's happening with the Democrats have become radicalized as sources tell C N N Trump and Pelosi haven't spoken for two weeks. So that's the state of affairs. And that was the president before he decided last night's to essentially say, all right? I'm gonna give in the Nancy Pelosi. We're not going to have the state of the union. So we come to some agreement on the shutdown. Here's my analogy. This is now a battle between Nancy Pelosi. Forget about Chuck Schumer. He's not even in the in the picture anymore. He used in that piece or not. But he was the the president used the term dominates Nancy Pelosi dominating Chuck Schumer, an attempt to get him on television, which may or may not have been successful. But it's really Nancy Pelosi versus Donald Trump. So I looked back, and I was I was thinking about famous wars famous battles between men and women. I gotta go back to Bobby Riggs and Billie Jean King nineteen Seventy-three Houston astrodome three thousand people showed up for this thing. Now, you gotta be a little bit older remember this. But this was a big deal. This was Bobby Riggs who was at one time a tremendous tennis player. He was number one in the world. But at that point he was in his fifties. Billie. Jean King was the top women's player in the world. Tremendous talent went out to set mazing records in her career. But it was billed as the battle the sexes. And all the pomp and circumstance. I think Bobby Bobby Riggs came in and Shaw with like scantily clad women there was cheerleaders. I said marching band music about it too long. Sex's last year. I think Emma Thompson played Billie Jean King. That's what this is take. You can take the politics and it's easy to say. Of course, take the politics out of this. This is Nancy Pelosi Donald Trump head to head who's gonna blink first who's going to cave in right now, the media the meter just shifted a little bit too Nancy Pelosi. She got him him being president. I'd states to cave on a state of the union speech because he wanted to give it he really wanted to give it as late as yesterday we played that piece. He was still talking about trying to figure it out and then meekly last night. So you know, what we're going to hold off which I think about Donald Trump's tweets how often does that happen. So this is battle of the sexes. Twenty nineteen version right now, none of the other stuff matters. Keep in mind where Nancy Pelosi comes from California, a state that is about as anti Republican as you can be to the point where they're scrubbing one by one every Republican out of every congressional seats. Every office at the state legislature, taking them out Democrats will they already control it. They're going to dominate us. The president's word that states. They hate Republicans. They hate Donald Trump Nancy Pelosi is fighting I think the battle of two thousand sixteen over again, what was two thousand sixteen a woman against a man Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump scrub out Hillary Clinton replace it with Nancy Pelosi here, we are. Now, if you remember that match back in nineteen seventy three. Billie. Jean King won the match. Is Nancy Pelosi gonna win this fights. And what would that look like for all the folks who say shut it down. Let's get what we want. And I have a lot of Republican friends who say that. How does that feel right now? You see a president giving a little bit given an inch pulling back a little bit. What's the next thing? Because as much as I hate to say this there's pain in the country based on the shutdown. I have friends and relatives who work for the federal government starting to feel that a little bit. Thirty four days in. This is just the twenty nine hundred version of the nineteen Seventy-three match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs Jean King still around Bobby Riggs died think about four years after he died in one thousand nine hundred nineteen ninety-five lasted for a couple of decades. He was an interesting character. But this is what we're we're at now all the rest of the characters all the congress people, the senators what the heck is Mitch McConnell doing, whereas Mitch McConnell. He he was just profiled in the New York Times magazine breaks. Do they catch them on an island somewhere in some other part of the world keep in mind, folks, we're paying a lot of money for these folks to be in Washington DC? Here's all you end, the shutdown. They get no pay. I know some of them have voluntarily given it up a lot of them haven't done that. None of them should be paid. That's a that's a no brainer. If and when they settle the shutdown. It's more more women than if that has to change you have to not be paid into the shutdown. If you're not gonna pay your federal workers, you don't get paid either. You are you are essentially an employee of the government anabolic bus that seems to be a no brainer. And to whatever you figure this thing out put some mechanisms in place, where this this is not going to be a recurring theme because frankly, given politics twenty nineteen we could be doing this three times a year four times a year every year. What's it gonna be like, well, let me get to that? After the break if let's just say twenty twenty works out differently. And we have a democratic president and still Republican Senate. I'll give you a scenario that should scare everybody when it comes to politics. That's after the break. Steve's committee with you on this Thursday. Fourteen degrees at Radio City. Stay warm.
