Re: Players threaten to boycott the AO!

I have no problem with the players looking for more money from the Grand Slams - they do get a small proportion of the total revenue compared to other sports.

However, I am totally against all that floating up to the top, to the end of the tournament. More money in tennis needs to be filtering down to the lower ranks to make it affordable for players to compete and so more of them can make a living out of it.
