In an interview to The New York Times, Vasek Pospisil, a member of the Player Council, commented on Rafael Nadal and Roger” federer> joining the Council for the first time in some years. Novak Djokovic is the President, which means all the Big Three are now involved in tennis politics.
“These guys, along with Novak, they’re the three greatest players of all time, and that carries a lot of weight. If they’re aligned and in the same boat with the same goals in mind, there’s a lot that can be accomplished”, said Pospisil.
“I think all three of them have the right intentions for growing the sport and being on the same page. So I expect to see them working together, but at the same time, they’re three Goliaths in the sport, so the dynamic might be an interesting one to observe”.
Nadal said: “We decided to be together out there. If we are there is because we spoke before about being there, no? I will not be alone there, he will not be alone there. No, if we are there, both of us I think can be a good power, good help for the sport in some way, hopefully in a better way.
Just we are here to help and, of course, to know a little bit better what’s going on. Last year have been some up and downs in a lot of things.”
