Good point, why not. Maybe some players could find extra motivation if they could put a big money on themselves to win the whole thing?

The ATP has no problem banning and fining guys ranked 300 or lower for betting 5 euro, preaching integrity, then turn around and ok a move to have a betting site sponsor a tournament?

I know money rules the world, but come on.
Did the ATP pick the sponsor or the owners of the Hamburg tournament?

:-) Idiotic really, given anyone using a mobile won't use local wifi anyway.

As so often with the ATP, they want to give the image of dealing with a problem, without actually doing anything.

It's not like the ATP supports this. Didn't they make life hard for Hamburg to get this deal done?

Hamburg has been absolutely shit on since 2008. From a huge height.

i see gambling advertisements everywhere on the tour and was thinking this for a while. It's definitely not going anywhere as it really seems some tournys are struggling for endorsements. Not paying 100k appearance fees to certain players would be a good start in cutting costs.

The crowds normally come, name or no name, if the venue is right. Look at WTA Stanford, one of the worst premier draws in recent memory and the stadium still packs itself in qf's and up.

ATP doesn't object tennis gambling in general. Only when players place bets. There's really no problem here.

It's good that ATP gives us a free comedy show.
