Everything that the ATP has done in the past few weeks has gone wrong! From the ignorance in the organization of the “sexist” and “disgraceful” draw ceremony in Milan to the irresponsible publication of the wrong schedule—it appears as if the ATP can’t get anything right these days.
The ATP has announced that the matches of Group Pete Samparas were scheduled to begin on the 12th of November while those of Group Boris Becker would begin on the 12th of November. In light of the published “news”, a large number of Nadal and Federer fans had bought tickets to the incorrect sessions. Imagine expecting to witness the class of Roger Federer but being greeted instead by the arrogance of Rafael Nadal!
The fact that the players, themselves, were confused by the comedy of errors speaks millions of the irresponsible ATP. And to make matters worse, they got the start timings of the matches wrong as well. Imagine getting up early in the morning to catch a game of tennis at 9am, only to realize that the game doesn’t begin until 2pm. But that’s what happens when the international body for the game of tennis is nothing short of a “liability” for the sport!
