The coronavirus pandemic has brought tennis to a halt with livelihoods of many players affected. At the bottom end of the spectrum, players who are ranked in the lower echelons are finding it tougher to get by. A relief fund had been created for these lower-ranked professionals by the top-tier players and the respective tours. With no return date in mind, the challenge is to find a solution to make the sport fair for these players when things do improve.
"Why don't you get some of that money to qualifiers, to someone who plays only Challengers? I just don't understand because, in doubles, you just don't make the same effort as a singles player. You don't practice as much¦.they keep going, week in and week out, getting that money. I don't know if we have to stop doubles completely, but to get less money and give that money to qualification and others, that should be a solution," she concluded.
