American tennis sensation Reilly Opelka has clearly not tired of proving his point as he took another dig at doubles tennis matches.
Opelka, who is highly active on social media and does not shy away from speaking his mind, has been criticizing doubles tennis matches for a few days, claiming that the players are overpaid and that they do not sell tickets outside of the UK.
He reiterated his point of view when he stated that the world’s top tennis players hardly ever compete in doubles matches. Additionally, he argued that the draw size for doubles tournaments should be decreased.
“The best tennis players in the world rarely play doubles. Decreasing draw size in doubles would be a good place to start,” Opelka wrote.
The American continued by saying that while fans watch the match when the best singles players play doubles, they do not do so when the top doubles players are on the court.
“Exactly! People watch the best singles players play doubles! But they don’t watch the best doubles players play doubles,” Opelka wrote.
To further support his argument that doubles players are overpaid, Reilly Opelka wrote:
“Agreed not all singles players sell tickets. But not a single doubles player sells tickets. Overpaid is overpaid, hard to argue with math.”
