The promotional poster of the Miami Open has been criticized… is that right?
Roger Federer has mesmerized the tennis community (and beyond) after he won an incredible title at the recent Australian Open. After this title, Roger has consolidated his “leadership” as the most admired tennis player in the world. The organizations of tennis tournaments know very well that Roger is a fantastic boost for them in terms of audience and they are elated when he blesses them with his magnetic presence. Roger has won the tournament in Miami back in 2005 and 2006.
What happened in Miami
Roger has often skipped Miami where the conditions are not great for him to favor Indian Wells. This year, the Swiss sensation decided to play the ATP1000 in Key Biscayne, and the organization has decided to highlight his participation by putting him (and Serena) at the forefront of their promotional poster.
The decision to do that has been criticized because the world no.1 Andy Murray and world no.2 Novak Djokovic have been put in the “3rd row”.
You may argue that Roger and Serena are the world no.1 in the Year to Date rankings, or they lead the other players in terms of slams, but Andy’s fans may still have ground to complain.
