Uh, goober. Don't live up to your name.
They have been paying for her tournaments, travel, training, and coaching for 2 years now.
To suddenly decide to not support her playing this tournament is not par for the course or normal.
As for their rules, I am sure this is not a rule.
I've never heard of the USTA telling any other #1 player not to play the US Open. I have not heard anything similar.
It sounds like arbitrary punishment meted out unfairly to their best player.
