After the victory over Tennis Sandgren, the Serbian ace was asked to reveal to journalists that there were a number of meetings regarding the PTPA.
"It wasn't just two meetings, much more. We reached all the players from the first 500, from the men's singles 350 and another 150 from the doubles, also to the tennis players, but things are going slower there"

He then revealed that his association has the support of a large majority.
"If I'm not mistaken, we have 75%, almost 80% of the support of 500 male players. They all signed the document to be in the PTPA. That's great news, but let's see what happens in the coming months. It will certainly be a few changes and we’ll talk about that”.

Djokovic says serious people are standing above the PTPAA.
"Several very rich and influential people from the USA support us financially, as well as with advice ... They participate in every conference call, help create the structure and basis of PTPA. We had several conversations with ATP, but until we set everything up, in "In terms of the structure and legislation of the PTPAA, there is no reason to talk at length with the ATP. When we are ready we will try to find a common language. The PTPA as a player association must work with the ATP and the WTA. That is inevitable," he concluded.

As interesting as this is, I think they should leave it for the post RG press releases. We should focus on the tennis not the politics at the slams. Not saying both cannot be done, but watch, this will be in all the tennis news because it's much easier to write about than tennis analysis or profiles on players.

Novak was asked, he didn't bring up this topic himself.
I agree we should focus on tennis now...

And there goes his shot at winning FO. What a total muppet. The feeding frenzy will now distract him get him riled and longer Federer stays in Federer will start winding him up.
Team Djokovic are truly inept at management. Why raise this now lol.

Football is a club sport, so it was easier to defeat. It's vastly different with tennis. The ATP itself was a renegade organisation.

I see an interesting analogy with the SuperLeague, which had financing secured from a big US bank, and yet UEFA managed to smash it in like 24 hours?

let's see what ATP will make

He was asked and answered. Hope he won't allow this to be big agenda in next days... If he finds himself distracted at all, he will refuse to talk about, simple as that...

Novak should look after only his tennis forget about this ptpa, slam organisation will not agree to loose power, they will go to any length to stop this.
I mean did anybody in ATP or players association said anything when two slam decided reschedule their tournament and it was small tournaments who bore the aftermath of decision.
There treatment of O..aka was also stupid( Yes O..aka also did stupid things).
Leave this politics, look after your tennis, nobody cares about players especially the lower ones

Here is yet another vindication of the Big O. The post match presser is supposed to be about the match, not the PTPA. There are other venues and times for that.

Why do you think he was asked? He took the bait. Cannot believe he fell for it. Remember what i said about Federer being a danger? His media pals will play all the tricks.
I should coach Novak!! He should have said ill comment on this after the event. Fine me if you have a problem

Novak wants to promote the PTPA. He sees it as an opportunity. I'm sure he was glad of the question. The slams gave a platform to an adversary.

He fell for it hook line sinker. Tomorrow he will get crucified in press. The press who love Federer.
Nadal will be practically silent this event as he knows after Djokovic press will be after him

Novak is taking the bait and getting distracted.

He may be good with Serbian politics but the ATP is a little too big for his shoes, given his goals for tennis.

He has ended his title hopes with that statement. Media will now pour over every word. His management team are hopeless
