Kids were tossing coins throughout this entire RG if I recall correctly.

Because the ATP is run by pedophiles.

It's a marketing initiative, they probably entered a competition or something or they're related to the tournament committee.

How does having some kid hold a players hand for 5 seconds and walk out with them 'promote the game'? It's an idiotic European thing. I've seen them do it in other events, too. It's supposed to be cutesy but it's just dumb. Really dumb.

Basically its a way to make money via a competition as the posters says above. Richest dad gets his kid to hold Chokdal and DjokoKing's hand. Pity they don't invest this money on a fucking roof and lights.

Because it would be unfair if they players tossed the coin

I'm sure you would prefer the players to walk on the court with two hot girls in a mini skirt who would toss the coin and then pick it up, exposing their boobs and panties.

But it won't happen, this kids thing is really cute
