it's not bribing exactly it's pressuring tournament adviser's based on his high position in tennis...
if Barack Obama asks the governor of Alabama politely***** to give his nephew a job as his assistant, is it ok just because he was polite about it? of course a random and fictional comparison, but relevant in that it is someone in a powerful position trying to influence an unjust promotion/decision.
manners have nothing to do with it, the fact is top players should not be influencing/asking for tournaments to do them 'favors' by throwing out wildcards to their family members.
shit, manners/politeness, is irrelevant, it's just the basic principle. not that complicated
