American tennis player Reilly Opelka believes in order for tennis to move forward, then there has to be more transparency in the sport.
Opelka has been out of action since last August due to several injuries, but the former World No.17 is never shy when it comes to expressing his opinion. On a recent episode of The Craig Shapiro Podcast, Opelka spoke about some improvements he'd like to see on the business side of the ATP tour.

"I would fight for transparency," said Opelka. "I would want transparency all around in this sport. That's how sports move forward, businesses move forward."
The Michigan native also chimed in on the revenue-sharing deal between players and the ATP Masters 1000 events.
"Players have a split with net revenue," he added. "That's like the biggest suc*er deal in sports...Who does a net revenue deal? That's insane. That absolutely doesn't exist in other sports."
