Would be great if the players stood up for themselves for once. The slams cash in bigtime & give a very small % back to players. It's the lower ranked players for whom the money is important that really lose out. Wimbledon for example makes millions & hand over a lot of those millions to the LTA which has had little to show for itself - sure slams will help out their national tennis association (USTA/FTF/TA/LTA...) but it's too tilted that way.
Not sure when they'd do it though. Strike at the Aus Open? Or at the French? US Open is the best target as it's the worst for players I think conditions wise - but it's pretty far away....
Neil Harman wrote in The Times today Nadal was considering stepping down as Vice-President of the Player's Council at the meeting tonight as he doesn't think the leadership listen/is fed up with it - wonder if that happened. Strike talk sounds like more players are on a wavelength with him, Roddick & Murray about some issues than perhaps Fed... Interesting stuff.
Edit: Santiago Gonzalez's twitter talks about players getting 30% of revenue from ATP tournaments vs 13% at Grand Slams & asks where all the money goes. Then says it was a very interesting meeting, possibly strike at the next tournaments/Slams (not clear which....). Would Rafa strike at the French & Wimbledon? Possibly not - may just convince people to wait till the US Open.
