I give Novak Djokovic credit for his work in Player Council, says Pospisil

In an interview to TSN, Vasek Pospisil commented on the several players like Robin Haase and Sergiy Stakhovsky resigning from the players' council. "It's disappointing (the resignations).. there was nothing dramatic in the discussions other than a disagreement on what the role of a good candidate is.

And we had two very good candidates. We decided to wait 5 months and maybe even get some new candidates. I am not sure why the guys resigned; maybe to focus on their tennis careers, I am not sure. But it is taxing, especially if you're passionate about the sport and trying to make changes.

It takes a certain amount of energy and maybe not everybody is ready for it. But that's what we're getting into when we get into tennis politics." On Novak Djokovic's role - the Serb is the President - Pospisil added: "Honestly I give so much credit to Novak for what he's been doing, he's the No.

1 player, but he deals with all issues big, or small, and he's trying his best to effect change which is very rare. I mean top guys, they have a lot on their plate, he's not just speaking, because everyone can speak or go on Twitter or give an opinion because it's one thing to be vocal, to try to stir up some kind of controversy, but it's a whole other thing to roll up your sleeves and try to do the work, and that's where l give Novak credit for really caring."
