Portland a finalist for Davis Cup

    Global Spectrum, which this week secured a one-year extension to manage the Rose Quarter for Paul Allen, is pursuing a marquee event not seen in Portland in two decades: Davis Cup tennis.

    U.S. Tennis Association spokesman Tim Curry confirmed Friday that Portland is a finalist as host for the international tennis showcase in December. Association officials scouted Memorial Coliseum on Tuesday, but they also are considering sites in San Diego, Oklahoma City and Winston-Salem, N.C.

    “It was a very positive visit,” said Mike Scanlon, who manages the Rose Quarter for Global Spectrum.
