US Open 2012 Controversy

During the US Open juniors event in 2012, Townsend’s request for a wildcard for the US Open main draw or the qualifying tournament was denied, pertaining to her body weight. During that time, Townsend was the top-ranked girl on the juniors circuit and she was surprised by USTA’s decision.

The former tennis players Lindsay Davenport and Martina Navratilova criticized USTA’s decision. Back then, USTA refused to take care of Townsend’s expenses and she came to the tournament with her own expenses.

She reached the quarterfinals of the tournament. Then USTA agreed to fund Townsend's expenses as Patrick McEnroe spoke of a miscommunication.

With that controversy, Townsend split with her USTA coaches and began training under 1990 Wimbledon finalist, Zina Garrison.
