Vasek Pospisil: 'I am not alone in the Council. There is also Djokovic'

On a column for Radio Canada, Vasek Pospisil spoke about the struggles in making tournaments increase the prize money. The Canadian player said: "ATP has no interest in changing anything. The business is too good. Fortunately, I'm not alone: there is also Novak Djokovic.

Despite the appearance of a "David against Goliath" fight, I didn't give up. I believe in our cause. I will find a solution. After my days of training during my recovery, I worked until late at night to get there.

I'm not paid to do that, but I've done too much to give up." Pospisil, analyzing his loss to Felix Auger-Aliassime in Montreal, said: "The level of the game was very high. He plays very well. I myself played a good match, too.

But even the level was good. I knew that in a match like this if I was able to play at that level, I would have chances of winning the match, which I had. I was close. But Felix played very well at the end of the match. I'm happy that I was on the court without pain.

That was good. Congratulations to Felix. He played well." Asked if he aims to be back on the top 100, Pospisil replied: "I was injured, of course, I fell in the rankings. I really want to get back to the top 50 or maybe higher.

I had been there for a few years. I believe if I continue playing that way, I will soon be able to be back at that level. I would like to be back at that level a year from now, the beginning of next year. It would be great. That's my goal. But I need to be without pain and without injuries. That would be great."
