"It's more about a corrupt system that systematically suppresses talents compensation" - Opelka slams ATP in series of tweets

Reilly Opelka is not happy about the sale of the Western & Southern Open and he slammed ATP for not caring enough about its players.

Many players have voiced their displeasure about the way the ATP is handling things and it's only getting worse over time. Some of those problems were the reason organisations such as the PTPA have been formed and Reilly Opelka has been one of the most vocal critics of the ATP.

He voiced his latest displeasure on Twitter attacking the ATP for the sale of the Western & Southern Open as well as accusing them of not caring enough for their players:

"So let me get this straight, Madrid and Cincy sell for $400M/$300M.. in the same year atp board decide to give Masters 1000’s a ton more days while rescinding player commitment protections, leading to way harsher penalties for any missed 1000 events."

He continued:

"It seems like our player board reps did a great job negotiating on our behalf…they did get the players 2% prize money increases and agreed to the biggest known sucker play in revenue sharing by agreeing to a % of “NET” profits as opposed to 'gross."

And more:

"Allowing tournaments the continued practice of manipulating their #’s. Just ask anyone involved in the process the difference in the #’s the tournaments used when presenting to potential buyers vs. #’s they used during prize money negotiations."
