Totally respectable.Lopez being a little bit dramatic about things. I've got news for him, the ATP doesn't need all events to survive. Tennis is one of the richest sports, especially the governing bodies that are loaded.
Besides, what's wrong with business administration these days? It's like companies/organisations are ashamed of having a financial buffer. They're acting like any possible backlash needs to be compensated asap. Last time I checked the Madrid event is considered to be quite big so you'd expect some kind of financial buffer. Well, it is Spain of course so we should be happy they haven't asked the EU for financial support yet.
The article states Lopez thinks people will be able to travel freely and the borders are opening up within two weeks or so. The date of the article is 15 June 2020. So Lopez was talking about the beginning of July for this to happen? Look around mrs Murray's toyboy, it's August and countless planes are grounded at airports worldwide. Travel restrictions are all over the news.
(no offence to Lopez himself, love his game and he seems nice, but these statements aren't very realistic)
You know what? You stay in your basement, and away from internet (it spreads the virus too, if you didn't know), and we'll organize some food delivery service and such to cover you.
Sit tight and wait for our signal. We'll let you know when it's safe to get out.
You're very important to us and we just want to make sure you're ok, even if all of us have to sacrifice by testing life, going out, attending events and generally having fun.
If you have to breath, breath shallow... short bursts... and don't forget the mask... In your basement... Alone... Safe.
