Great idea for Fed to cash in on the untapped South American market where tennis is popular and which is sorely missing 500+ tournaments. Not sure why no entity in South America has been able to stage a major tourney, but at least capitalism --- Gillette --- comes to the rescue. Vamos, Federer, vamos!
Hardest part will be getting players to appear unshaven, and severely limits the field as diehard scraggly stubble-faced Fish, Del Po, Lopez, Ferrer et al won't make the cut.
Spending time with your children and not being a wage slave at some soulless corporation or government bureaucracy sounds like hell. Haven't we progressed beyond the idea that it is in loving relationships with other people that we find fulfillment and meaning? Climbing the corporate ladder is essential in the pursuit of happiness.
