Some of the leading men on the ATP Tour have openly come out and criticized the WTA for its stance on prize money negotiations with the Grand Slam tournaments.

Yesterday, Ukraine's Sergiy Stakhovsy, who is on the ATP Players Counil, tweeted: "Wow just got the info that WTA recommended their players to not support ATP and their demands on GS."

But WTA reps have denied the claim and said this is not true. Earlier this year, WTA Council member Bethanie Mattek-Sands told the media that the men did not keep the WTA in loop on a possible boycott of the Australian Open.

“We all know what [ATP Players Council member] Gilles Simon said at Wimbledon [that he’s against equal prize money] and it’s tough because they really don't talk to us a lot,” Mattek-Sands said at the time. “We agree with some of the things of they want, like [a higher percentage of overall revenues for [prize money], but they haven’t approached us. I think everyone would agree the best tournaments are the combined events. That’s where we get the most fans and prize money and I’m not sure why they don't want to talk to us. We’d love to sit down and talk to them… what I’m disappointed about is we haven’t been included in any conversation.”
