Davis Cup = $7 million for area tourism

    This weekend’s Davis Cup should generate at least $7.1 million of tourist spending for area hotels, restaurants, retailers and transportation providers, according to estimates by event organizers.

    The Oregon Sports Authority, which helped lure the event to Portland, said Tuesday that 62 percent of the 12,000-or-so ticketbuyers hail from outside Oregon. The three-day competition begins Friday and features professional tennis teams from Russia and the United States.

    Not counting ticketholders, Davis Cup officials, team delegations, sponsors and covering media have booked 3,848 room nights during the event, said Meyer Freeman, chief operating officer for the organization, which promotes sporting events.
