The story says that Roger objected to the ATP tournament reps' stance against raising prize money; in fact, he continues to fight for higher shares of the prize money for lower-ranked players.
He also fought off idiotic ideas (from another top player) of a two-year ranking system and reduced calendar, both of which would have hurt the lower-ranked players.
