Serena Williams on Novak Djokovic-led PTPA: ‘I’m obviously always Team Djokovic, but I can’t really comment’
Serena Williams stopped short of giving her full support to the newly formed Novak Djokovic-led player association, but says the world No 1 “has some very strong opinions that are often true”.
Djokovic dropped a bombshell in the build-up to the US Open after announcing that he along with Canadian Vasek Pospisil and American John Isner would break away from the ATP Player Council and form the new Professional Tennis Players Association (PTPA).
However, the move was met with opposition from Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray.
Following her first-round win at the US Open, 23-time Grand Slam winner Williams was asked if it is time for the WTA Player Council to follow in the footsteps of the PTPA.
“I would be really interested to learn more about what everything is about because I feel like I can’t really have an opinion unless I understand more deeply,” she said.
“I’m obviously always Team Djokovic, but at the same time I’ve been on the WTA Tour for 30 years and I know a lot of stuff that’s happening there. I would like to – yeah, I can’t really comment on that.
“I do feel he has some very strong opinions that are often true. Yeah, I would just have to wait.”
