Writing > Improving Sentences

Part or all of the following sentence is underlined; beneath the sentence are five ways of phrasing the underlined material. Select the option that produces the best sentence. If you think the original phrasing produces a better sentence than any of the alternatives, select choice A.  

The main tennis stadium of the US Open, named after the African-American tennis player Arthur Ashe and located in New York City, who won the first ever US Open men's singles title in 1968.

Answer Choices

Right! (Applause.)

Explanation

Choice (D) is correct. It avoids the sentence fragment of the original by providing the main verb “is” to carry out the action of the sentence. In addition, it places the proper noun “Arthur Ashe” directly before the relative clause that modifies it, “who won the first ever US Open men's singles title in 1968.”
