This paper presents detailed plans for assuring security at the 2007 U.S. Open by the Network Casualty Life & Limb Management Consultants (NCLLMC). The paper addresses the plans concerning player safety, crowd management and stadium and facility safety. The paper shows how while there may be no way to prevent people from attempting to harm the players, the crowd, or the facility at the 2007 U.S. Open, carefully planned risk management can significantly reduce vulnerability to those attempts.

Player Safety
Crowd Management and Safety
Stadium and Facility Safety

From the Paper:

"Network Casualty Life & Limb Management Consultants (NCLLMC) understands the importance of providing protection for all tennis players at the U.S. Open. It is imperative that each tennis player is provided with personal safety measures when entering and leaving the court and more importantly while they are playing in their match. Risks to players identified by NCLLMC include fans running out on court to show affection or harm a player and being approached by fans in corridors while entering or leaving the stadium. Both of these incidents create hazards for all players and NCLLMC will provide strategies on how to manage and respond to each for better control. In addition, examining the social responsibility of the consultant group and future trends in managing risks to players at the US open will be addressed as well.
"In 1993, Monica Seles was stabbed in the back by an obsessed fan of Steffi Graff at a tournament in Germany (Sportal.com.au, 2009). A scenario similar to this or one where a fan is able to run out and hug or kiss their favorite player at the US Open emphasizes the need for better player protection on court during matches. NCLLMC has the capability of hiring professional security, trained for this international event, which will provide individual players on court with protection during breaks and in between matches."
