The world’s number one Novak Djokovic fears that hundreds of professional tennis players who are low on the world rankings will have major problems making ends meet from their sport. Due to the corona pandemic, there are hardly any tournaments at the lower levels such as Challengers and Futures. The Serbian expressed his concerns on Friday in the run-up to the ATP Finals, the season finale with the best eight players of the year.
“It is great that we can play major tournaments again since the restart, but it is worrying that at the level of the Futures, say the start-up level for the pros, there are almost no tournaments. That is the largest group of professional tennis players. I have spoken to many players who are 500th or lower and they are begging for tournaments, ”said the seventeen-time grand slam winner.
Djokovic is the founder of a new association for professionals, the Professional Tennis Players Association (PTPA), which is independent of the ATP. “I think we have to work with all sides in tennis and look closely at this problem. There must be a system that makes it possible that many more tennis players and tennis players can make a living from their sport. At the moment there are maybe two hundred. ”
