Bulgaria’s tennis star Grigor Dimitrov has expressed surprise about the lack of noise regarding the potential investment of Saudi Arabia in tennis. The oil-rich country has been very active in investing in different sports. It was reported in the recent past that the Middle-Eastern country was willing to invest in tennis on a similar pattern like they did in golf which led to the merger of PGA Tour and Liv Golf.
Dimitrov, who is currently taking part in the Rome Open where he has already booked his place in the round of 16, was recently quoted in a report where he expressed surprise about the lack of noise surrounding the development. "Everyone, believe it or not, everybody has been very quiet about it. Yeah, this is actually, it surprises me a little bit,” he said.
"Yeah, but also what does that really mean? I don't know. That's what I'm saying. Even if we get big offers, what does that really mean? Like, it's basically a choice between the tours you want to play, which is, I don't know, I think tennis is hard as it is already. I understand people want to see changes from a very different perspective in our sport. I, for one, think that there will be some changes. I just hope they're not going to be that big.”
