Federer, Nadal elected to ATP Player Council

Federer, Nadal elected to ATP Player Council”

The unexpected development, confirmed on Thursday, will complicate the rumoured ambitions of the council president, Novak Djokovic, to replace the ATP's chief executive, Chris Kermode, with Mark Leschly, CEO of Universal Tennis Rating, a rival to the ATP's long-established ranking system.

The 33-year-old Spaniard, an 18-time Grand Slam singles victor, confirmed the choice by the pair of icons at the ATP Montreal Masters after reaching the quarter-finals by beating Argentina's Guido Pella 6-3, 6-4 on Thursday.

That's it, no? Is about just trying to help the game to be better. "The last couple of times have been some tough moments in terms of discussions, a lot of important things to have to be done", explained Nadal. They are abiding to serve until the end of the existing term which will end at the Wimbledon Championships 2020.

Another member of the council, Justin Gimelstob had to resign from his role after deciding not to contest charges against him for allegedly having assaulted a former friend Randall Kaplan.

In addition to 37 ATP Tour events and the US Open available exclusively on Prime Video with a Prime membership, Prime members in the United Kingdom who subscribe to Eurosport Player through Prime Video Channels for an additional £6.99 per month (following a 7-day free trial) will also benefit from full coverage of the French Open, and daily highlights and live coverage from the men's and women's finals of Wimbledon in 2019.

Other members of the council are Kevin Anderson, John Isner, Sam Querrey, Bruno Soares, Lu Yen-hsun, Vasek Pospisil and Colin Dowdeswell. Probably I can give a different perspective of how the game have to be or things that we can add.

Nadal and Federer, meanwhile, had stepped away from politics in tennis, and their decision to return as a united front is certainly a strong statement, with both strong outspoken critics of the conduct of the Players Council in recent months. If I am there, I believe that I can be helpful.
