Money? Easy ATP points? He was given a Wild Card into the Qualifying of a Challenger tournament. Pretty certain there are minimal points and money to be had even if he wins his 1st round of qualifying.He loves playing or money and easy atp points ? it's not fair toward other players.
Yes :True. He doesn't deserve it either. Last time I checked he lost 6-0, 6-1 in the R1 of Marseille or something.
So it's different, this guy is the Florence Jenkis of tennis.Money? Easy ATP points? He was given a Wild Card into the Qualifying of a Challenger tournament. Pretty certain there are minimal points and money to be had even if he wins his 1st round of qualifying.
Looking at other Challenger tournaments, wining the 1st round of qualifying gets you a whopping 2 ATP points and...~ $200. Doubt that will even pay for his hotel room and food.
I can see people complaining about wild cards into actual tour-level events (like when he plays doubles w/ his brother at Wimbledon or Monte Carlo), but a wild card at a Challenger, when he's been slogging it out at the ITF level for a couple of years...meh...I'll give them a pass.
...... while an average TTW poster would easily neutralize any serve since, you know, 'it is easy to just block back a fast serve', and went immediately on offence.Yes :
Petros Tsitsipas, 20, entered the Marseille draw after being granted a wildcard. He lasted 45 minutes and 36 seconds in being dismantled 6-0, 6-2 by the world No 52, Alejandro Davidovich Fokina. A measure of the 918 ranking places between them: Davidovich Fokina is one of the worst servers on the tour, ranked 102 out of 103 for service games won over the past year; Tsitsipas won just three return points in the entire match.
