“Many people don’t have any idea of the discrepancies in prize money and the distribution of wealth right up the top.”
“There’s got to be a structure where there’s more than just 100 guys making a living in a global sport … after that, we’re pretty much losing money.
“I think Djokovic out of the top three is pushing the agenda to give money to the lower ranks hardest.”

“It doesn’t affect them so they’re not that invested. At world no. 1 or 2, you’ve got so much going on.”Embed from Getty Images
