Mats Wilander also in favor of a merger between ATP and WTA – Fil Info

Mats Wilander supports Roger Federer. The Swede said on Friday he approved the Swiss proposal to unite men’s and women’s tennis and merge the ATP and the WTA. “It’s a good time for the circuit to reinvent itself in order to win over a younger audience. Maybe there should be more mixed tournaments. It would be a good way to sell all these new players, “said the former world number 1 to Reuters. Especially since for Wilander, tennis is likely to suffer from future retirements from several stars of the circuit, starting with Roger Federer, and must unite to face it. “In men or in women, there are many (young players) who are very exciting. “They are real athletes, they have a good attitude, but they don’t attract as much light as Federer, Nadal and Djokovic when they are on a court.”
