Horrible news for the IPTL after three heavy weights will not play in this year’s edition. It has been recently announced that Serena Williams, Roger Federer, and Genie Bouchard will not play the league and apparently, this is not because of injuries, but for organizational problems.

The league had to deal with several blows this year. First, they had to cancel the participation of the team from the Philippines citing political problems (???); then, they had to deal with the lack of interest of many stars that led to some rumors that the IPTL would have been canceled in 2016. Eventually, the rumors ceased following the confirmation of the participation of Serena Williams and Roger Federer, but eventually also the American and the Swiss decided not to play for these “organizational problems.” Genie Bouchard has also decided not to play.

From Roger Federer's agent

Tony Godsick, Roger's agent said that the Swiss will not lay in the league because of "some problems and uncertainties surrounding the IPTL". He added that Federer "hopes to play in future years if the IPTL continues".

Is there any future for the league?

It all sounded as a big lie especially after they withdrew the team from Philippines citing political unrest. Few weeks ago they also denied any problems for the league and now... liying doesn`t pay in the long run

Come on, the stadium were always empty during the ties with the exception of when Federer was there. I think that this experiment can end up in tears

It was an interesting idea badly executed also because it seems it was just flushed with money by tycoons. The rules were too messy, complicated to follow. In a way I liked it, but the management didn`t find the right formula. Furthermore, the off season needs to be preserved for the good of everyone. I can`t see any future for the League.
