WE DONT WANT THE COURTS ALONE !!!

SUGGESTION #1 MONEY CONCEPT – LET´S HELP ITF TO IMPROVE THIS “IDEA” (CIRCUIT AND CONCEPTS)
As probably you know, I was working with 5 different countries on their National Federations and Tennis Organizations, also, I designed and built hundred of tennis development plans for coaches, clubs, academies, and players and wrote many tennis books, some on them on development tennis. Always, I like to go straight to the point.
In a humble way, let´s help ITF to figure out what’s happen in their own circuits with some ideas. (Probably, they really don’t have the idea of what happened on field)
MONEY ISSUE??? (Which was apparently the trigger for made researches on 2014)
In that sense, ITF said that they are 14.000 tennis players playing on the international pro circuit. Mentioning that many of them don’t earn any dollar, as ITF Director said days ago in an interview. Let’s assume that this is true.
Solutions?? MORE MONEY ON TOURNAMENTS. Keep it simple. CANCEL Futures U$D 15K, all tournaments are starting with U$D 25K basis. How? SIMPLE
Last year they had in an annual total of futures for men/women circuits of 1177 futures, 447 were U$D 15K for men and 326 for women.
Total: 773
If you make a ITF grant for National Federations (Let´s dream a little) of U$D 10.000.- per future, you can transform all F15K into F25K.
Total of investment: U$D 7.730.000.- for ITF (Assuming that this year you have the same quantity of tournaments (We know that is not)
WHERE THE MONEY COMING FROM:
+ 14.OOO TENNIS PLAYERS COMPETING PAYING ITF IPIN (U$D 65): U$D 910.000.-
+ 10% OF ITF FEE OF PRIZE-MONEY, THAT YOU ARE ALWAYS CHARGING TO THE NF AND PROMOTER: U$D 2500 X 773= U$D 1.932.500.-
+ USING 30% OF SPORTS RADAR CONTRACT TO SUPPORT THE SYSTEM (THEY PAID A CONTRACT U$D 70 MILLON FOR 5 YEARS FOR USE THA DATA OF MATCHES) (U$D14M PER YEAR):
U$D 14 MILLION – 35%= U$D 4.900.000.-
Total of money ITF for Circuits: U$D 910.000.- + U$D 1.932.500.- + U$D 4.900.000.- = U$D 7.742.500.- to invest in pro tennis (We have some money change to give, just in case)
Also, you don’t touch other sources of money of ITF.
SIMPLE.
+ You don’t touch money which is coming from Davis Cup (Which apparently U$D 20M is for development tennis worldwide)
+ Use money which is coming from ITF CIRCUITS
+ You increase money in the tournaments
+ You help Countries, National Federations (With Grants) and, therefore, professional players.
+ You (ITF) can regulate the quantity of grants for country and ways to do it with strict regulations (Because in many way, tournaments is a hospitality business rather than a very good tennis)
+ More money for players. Less chances of some problems incentivated for lack of it.
+ You need to integrate more international sponsors. (Urgent)
NOBODY WANTS TENNIS COURTS ALONE!!!
MORE PARTICIPATION IS THE KEY WITH “BETTER” IDEAS. KEEP IT SIMPLE. COMMON SENSE WILL REIGN AGAIN.
For a better tennis. All the best. Next days, other suggestions. (Sorry)
