Dirk Hordoff (Vice President of the German Tennis Association) and Alexander Antonitsch (father of Mira Antonitsch) had meeting there. They have faught really hard to get rid of the new useless Tennis Tour Rules. This is what Dirk wrote on FB:
"So Alexander Antonitsch and Dirk Hordorff had dinner tonight. Eating 4 starters, one main course and dessert discussing all outstanding issues regarding the WTT Tour.
Good news came from WTA. Tournament board representive agreed for points on 15 k tournaments ITF. We believe that players board representive will also agree.
ATP player council is also in favor of supporting the reforms of this desaster WTT. Still hoping the responsible persons in the management notice that time is running and changes need to be implemented now.
Following decisions and suggestions :
1. ATP and ITF should implement fines for employees and management for use of following words:
2. Double up fines for employees or board members who deny the mess they produced regarding WTT and argue with the words pathway, healthy and integrity
3. ATP, WTA and ITF should excuse to all players who were not eligable to participate in our sport for many month and or had big cost for travelling around the world.
4. Instead of destroying tennis ITF should make sure, that enough tournaments with enough spots in qualifying are offered to the players. 48 qualifying draws.
5. Instead of giving Thomas Koenigsfeld any more awards for the mess he produced with his committee ITF should honor the players who made the facebook groups ITF against players, Change ITF Rules - United Tennis. Additional awards for the players which organised the protest posters at the futures events.
6. ITF should not waste time to agree to following point shedule and ATP and WTA should agree also

Maybe their friendship or alliance is the reason why Mira got WC. She had been injured for some time and she took advantage of that opportunity very well.
