Andy Murray And Dan Evans Take a Stand Against Djokovic-led New Players Association


Murray and Dan Evans

While Djokovic and Pospisil, along with many other players are keen to form a new players association, British professionals Andy Murray and Dan Evans have refrained from signing up for the same. Additionally, the new association may be a threat to the existing one. 

Andy had his opinions clear on the matter. He said, “So I will not be signing it today. I am not totally against a player union, player associations. But there are a couple of things right now.”

Mentioning about the concerns, Murray added, “I think the current management that is there in the place should be given some time to come up with a vision and implement it. Whether it will work out or not would potentially influence me in the future as to which way I would go.”

The other matter of concern for Murray is leaving women out of the association. He said, “The women are not going to be a part of it. I feel it would send a more powerful message if WTA was also with us in this. But that is currently not the case.”

However, the former world number one will consider changing his mind if these concerns are looked at.

His compatriot, Dan Evans referred this as the wrong timing. He said, “I have received e-mails regarding the players association. And all I can say is that it is horrible for all of this. For what it worth, I think the ATP is doing a great job for us.”
