Old news but good news...

Post by Tenez on Wed Apr 19, 2017 2:07 pm

Did you know that Federer contributed to increasing price money for the lower ranked/first round tournaments?

He Makes Makes Money for His Fellow Pros, too

Federer served as President of the ATP Tour’s Player Council for six years until he stepped down in August 2014. During his time as President, Federer achieved some notable increases in prize money from ATP and Grand Slam tournaments. In 2013 Wimbledon committed to increasing its total prize purse by 40%, while in the same year the US Open agreed to commit to reaching a total purse of $50 million by 2017.

Sergiy Stakhovsky, who sits on the council, lauded Federer has having “a huge impact in negotiations with his name and what he delivers for the game.” Todd Martin, a former President of the Council in the 1990s, said Federer “is remarkable because after generations of our very best tennis players not being involved in the sport from a governing standpoint, he took the bull by the horns and decided he was going to lead.”

He was replaced by American doubles specialist Eric Butorac, former vice president, who says “working closely with Federer was unreal… to have meetings with him and see how he handles everything.”

In a way I am not that surprised. He got so much (talent) given to him, I think it is normal he gives back....but it is still nice he does...even if I am not that bothered about this aspect of his life.

It makes change compared to those who, for instance, wanted a 2 year ranking to preserve the big names' status.

Well, it also helps when you have 40 million odd in prize money alone. The question is why aren't more players doing this.

What he has earnt is his. He does not have to give it to other players...and glad he did not. He just fought for the way money is distributed so lower ranked players earn more.
