Do you see the possibility ? Or would the fear be it would cannibalize the attendance / interest in the main tour ?
Champions Tour won't cannibalize the main Tour by any stretch of the imagination. Not more than the the void of the Big 5 leaving would anyway.Do you see the possibility ? Or would the fear be it would cannibalize the attendance / interest in the main tour ?
Even today folks talk about McEnroe vs Borg, McEnroe vs Lendl, McEnroe vs Connors rivalries. There is money to be made there. People always fall for nostalgia.I think it would be popular if that's what the players want to do. With hundreds of millions in the bank and rivalries that already span over a decade, they might not want to continue them.
It is completely different from Fish/Blake/Enquist/Ivanisevic/Courier playing vs the attraction Big 5 can generate. If not ATP, then it could be a different event sponsor.Champions tour doesn't have enough money and is private. ATP won't throw money at it cuz no big advertising revenue.
