Federer-Nadal

Tennis legends Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer, second and fifth in the world respectively, have been re-elected to the ATP players’ council, whose term runs until June 2022.

The council, voted on by ATP players, also saw the re-election of Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime, Australian John Millman, South African Kevin Anderson, Britain’s Andy Murray and Brazilian Bruno Soares.

In addition, Frenchman Gilles Simon returns to the council having served previous terms, while newcomers Pablo Andujar from Spain and New Zealander Marcus Daniell will serve their first terms.

Britain’s Colin Dowdeswell and Venezuelan Daniel Vallverdu were chosen as representatives of retired players and coaches, respectively.

The president and vice president of the council will be elected at their first meeting in 2021.

It was chaired until last year by world number one Novak Djokovic.

But the Serbian parted ways in August to establish a new players’ association that he said would include women and was intended to bring players together to give them a stronger voice in decision-making.

Federer and Nadal spoke out against the proposal when it was announced, calling for “unity, not separation.”
