PTPA partner of Novak Djokovic, Vasek Pospisil has dropped a serious claim against the ATP and its players over the usage of different balls on different tours. He has highlighted the fact that now and then about fifty percent of the players are suffering several injuries because of this inconsistent usage of balls.

Many star players such as Novak Djokovic, Daniil Medvedev, and Carlos Alcaraz have ranted about ATP’s use of different balls over the season. With ATP coming under serious criticism, Pospisil has now decided to take a dig at the board posting a tweet recently.

"First time in my career making my tournament schedule around the types of balls being used rather than geographical location and court surface."
tweeted Pospisil.

Pospisil also talked about the fact that ATP doesn’t really care about the tennis fans or the players. With the idea of increasing the number of rallies in a game, ATP has decided to come up with the idea of using heavier balls which is killing the bodies of several tennis stars. Pospisil has been doing a great job in fighting the situation against the board trying to make them well-informed about how much of a downgrade it has been to use different balls recently.

Pospisil also talks about the injuries of players due to heavier balls:

Pospisil has been working hard recently to protect the sport and its players. The Canadian believes the fact that heavier balls are killing the game and that players are suffering more and more wrist and elbow injuries.

"Almost every player I’ve spoken to feels the same way. I’ve never seen more wrist, elbow, and shoulder injuries in the locker room. Please start listening @atptour @wtatour. Player injuries are bad for you too."

The Canadian has also revealed the fact that has been in touch with many players who have complained about the balls and that these balls are leading to many complexities. He feels that if ATP doesn’t start looking after its players and just focus on the entertainment and business factors, things are going to get worse in the future.
