After confirmation that the next edition of the US Open Going forward (August 31-September 13), tennis has reason to smile. So thinks Boris Becker, since it considers that the vast majority of players on the circuit depend on the economic prizes awarded by tournaments.
“I am pleased that it continues. It is important that players can continue their profession. 99% of players depend on prizemoney. They have no high advertising revenue or protection. Therefore, many have considered looking for a different profession. Sometimes they weren't even allowed to teach tennis. It is an encouraging sign to the industry that two Grand Slams, who are struggling to survive, play each other. I even have high hopes that Roland Garros will be with viewers. “ explained the German extenista in the newspaper Hessensau.
In addition, on the possibility that the season will drop the curtain in Madrid with the Davis Cup final, Becker was optimistic: “We qualify for the final and I hope to play in Madrid in late November. It was the last official tennis event in Germany, the closure occurred two days later. “Hopefully his good faith will come true.
