Vasek Pospisil taunts Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal for allegedly stealing credit


Earlier in the day, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal made headlines suggesting a merger of ATP and WTA. Roger was the first to suggest this, saying that in times of crisis, ATP and WTA should think about coming together.

Although his idea received largely positive responses in all areas, some had a slight problem. Some fan sections felt that Roger was trying to take credit for an idea that was already in the works. In fact, players like Billie Jean King have fought for this reform all their lives.

The last tennis star to have had a passive-aggressive response was Canadian star Vasek Pospisil. He revealed that ATP is already approaching this decision. The plan was actually much older than the current tweet.

What did Vasek Pospisil say about Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal?

Vasek Pospisil felt the need to point out that ATP has been discussing a possible merger since January. He said this in response to Roger Federer’s tweet when he initially praised the idea.

Pospisil was not the only star to have a problem. American tennis star Jamie Hampton said it was an attempt by Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal to steal credit from women who had been fighting for a long time. This opinion was supported by certain sections of the tennis community.

Returning to Vasek Pospisil, he is a member of the ATP player council. It is not the first time that he has shown resistance to Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. He criticized them in 2019 for not keeping the interests of all tennis players in their plans.

David Goffin also called the Vasek Pospisil duo and ATP player council president Novak Djokovic a good representation for tennis players. Needless to say, it was a player who chose a particular side. It will be interesting to see if Roger Federer decides to provide any response.
