In an interview to L'Equipe Vasek Pospisil commented on Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal's impact on the Player Council. The Canadian often said that the lower level players do not get enough prize money. "Everyone gave me their opinion, it was positive, nice to see, i had a little interaction with Roger, who looked like very interested", said Pospisil.
"I really think their goal is to improve the game before they retire. It's great that they come back, it's unbelievable to have the top three ranked guys. They can change many things in a quick way." Meanwhile the Canadian former player Daniel Nestor commented on Bianca Andreescu: "She's the full package.
She's very talented, she can hit hard. She can mix it up, she can play at the net. She's one of the rare women's players that can do a little bit of everyhing. I think some of them that we've seen at the top in the past were a little bit one-dimensional but she brings a different talent level, which is very exciting for her.
Considering how young all these players are, it's great for Canadian tennis." The Australian legend Rod Laver commented on the difference in terms of prize money between when he played and now. Laver is amazed. “It’s amazing.
It never entered my mind that someone would be playing for more than $3 million in a final. Something like that doesn’t quite enter into your thinking. It’s a big change of where we were, but I’m happy for all of them.
Guys like Roger (Federer) and Rafa (Nadal), Novak (Djokovic) and Andy (Murray), they are a huge asset to our game and they deserve the money and it’s a lot of money. But at the same time that’s what is available, so that’s OK, isn’t it?", said Laver.
