Well, such thing would good organization/management and networking skills I imagine, not much to do with winning matches. For example, there were articles with a ton on insight from players from the top 250-300+ who don't get many ATP wins, but know very well how the things work.Kind of baffling how much pull Vasek has considering he's the only top 25 player ever never to win a main draw ATP clay court match.🤔
Long overdue. Surprised the likes of Mac, Ivan, Connors etc did not create one.
No inclusion of WTA players either.
A union is fine, but Djokovic and Popsipil being the ones to create it, yeah doesn’t look good
Raonic doesn't seem to agree. I suspect he's thought about the merits of this more than you have.At least one player is on the record as saying he’ll sign on: 2016 Wimbledon runner-up Milos Raonic.
“Players have had plenty of time to think and reflect and take a look at certain parts which they may not be happy with and discuss,” Raonic said Friday after reaching the Western & Southern Open final.
“A lot of us were kept in the dark by our leadership for six months. We were disappointed with many things. I voiced my opinion on many things, such as … executives in other sports taking pay cuts to support us. As tennis players, we weren’t making a dime for months and months. … Lower guys weren’t making a dime,” Raonic said. “But our executives were staying home and didn’t feel it necessary to take any pay cuts. I pushed for that on every single phone call we had.”
No idea what his ranking or clay court prowess has to do with anything. If he and Novak can pull this off, they may go down as legends of the sport for a different reason. You know the tennis establishment is doing their best to stop them (the ATP has already sent a letter in fear urging the players not to unionize), but it really does look possible for the first time ever.Kind of baffling how much pull Vasek has considering he's the only top 25 player ever never to win a main draw ATP clay court match.🤔
