PARIS (AP) The former chairman of the U.S. Tennis Association has announced that he is running for president of the International Tennis Federation.

David Haggerty, who currently serves as a vice president of the ITF, says in a statement Monday that ''my goal is to strengthen the ITF's role as the world governing body for tennis and to increase revenue and communications throughout the tennis family so that we can ensure a healthy and viable future for our sport.''

The other candidates are Anil Khanna of India, Juan Margets Lobato of Spain and Rene Stammbach of Switzerland.

Italy's Francesco Ricci Bitti is stepping down in September after completing a fourth term as president.
