Former world number one Andy Murray believes Grand Slam prize money could be distributed better to help lower-ranked players struggling financially.
The tennis season was suspended in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the shutdown will continue at least until mid-July.
In an interview Murray questioned whether the multi-million cheques given to Grand Slam winners could be used better and spent elsewhere in the earlier rounds or the qualifying draws.
Meanwhile – Roger Federer believes the time is right for the men’s and women’s governing bodies to merge.
The 20-time Grand Slam champion has floated the idea in a series of Twitter posts.
He says a merger of the WTA and the ATP can help the sport come out of the coronavirus pandemic with “one stronger body” to help deliver a better experience for fans and players.
