Australian Open Revenue Talks Look Positive, No Player Boycott
Published October 12, 2012
THE RIGHT DIRECTION: In London, Paul Newman wrote the "general view among players was that Tennis Australia had responded well to complaints that the competitors' share of the revenues generated by all four of the Grand Slam tournaments was too small." Murray said, "From our side, it's definitely going in the right direction. All the conversations we've had with [the Australian Open] have been fairly positive." He added: "They've really been the first ones to step up. I think for the players it's important to remember the amount that they've invested in the facilities there, as well. It's not just always the prize money" (INDEPENDENT, 10/11).
