Re: WTA influence on Prize Money?: ATP votes down 800k Prize Money Increase at IW
Apparently the head of the ATP has the tie-breaking vote, and he abstained, so the proposal did not pass (according to SkySports tennis crew at WTF). Greg Rusedski thinks the head of the ATP did not represent the players adequately by abstaining. You can understand why the tournament directors rejected the proposal, as they would feel obliged to come up with similar monies, an easy thing for Larry Ellison but not for others not swollen with wealth. But I would expect the head of the ATP to take some sort of stand. Is abstaining taking a stand?
