Angry Stop The ATP

Hi Everyone, (don't worry, it's not another petition of my doing )

Today I received an e-mail regarding a campaign to "Stop The ATP", I know that many of you already agree with alot of the sentiments expressed in this new petition/cause and thought you would like to be made aware of it.

Here is the link...

Re: Stop The ATP

nah I actually think there's a little too much clay on the schedule.

GOOD LUCK: Safin, Murray, Ancic, Gasquet, Tipsarevic, Tsonga, Isner, Santoro.
BOO: Puerta, Davydenko, Kiefer, Ljubicic, Canas and all the DOPERS.

There is also a very special place in my heart for the three greatest WTA players of all time ---- Martina Hingis, Lindsay Davenport, and Monica Seles!!!

Human Anatomy & Physiology 201. Thanks for the trip down memory lane; I loved that class.

Yes, I am constitutionally incapable of posting on a thread's topic...What?

Fan of: Federer Safin Haas Nadal Santoro Agassi Tursunov's blog

"I couldn't even tell you who the No. 1 ranked tennis player in the world is right now," Federer said. "It's probably me, still. It is, isn't it?" The Onion

Russophilic member of the MTF Perv Squad--objectifying Tarpischev, Kafelnikov, and Volkov like whoa.

Re: Stop The ATP

I thought I smelled lawyers shampoo.The domain is registered to APCO, a well-known int'l PR co that specializes in litigation communication as well as online strategy.

I'm going to cross them off my list of potential future contracts due to this. They don't even know to register privately? Pfft. :P

GENIOUS again, J'torian.

Yea, the "wordings" aren't all that clear. FTR, "This petition is supported by the Monte Carlo Country Club, hosts of the Masters Series Monte Carlo."

Re: Stop The ATP

Just to clarify, here is part of the e-mail that was sent to me, they have made no secret of who they are and whom they are working on behalf of.

I saw your online petition about round robins from a month or two back and wanted let you know that a new site launched yesterday at

http://www.stoptheatp.com

in an effort to get the ATP to rethink its 'Brave New World' plan. The site is supported by the Monte Carlo Country Club and the Monte Carlo Masters Series - they are our client - and we are doing our best to spread the word and hopefully get some fan support to go along with that of Federer and Nadal and the other players who find this all very bad for tennis.
