Mouratoglou is looking to start a tennis league - set to start in mid-May


He will do it at his academy. Looking to have 10 pro players that would play one match per week on the weekends. I think play 8 matches or so. Right now, Goffen is the highest ranked player to commit. Sounds like he will stream matches and Tennis Channel has some interest (you can google for some short articles).

I actually think this is a good idea - his academy has housing, and we are only talking about 10 players...so pretty easy to quarantine. Not sure the economics behind it, but would guess the players could make some money

I could actually see 4-5 of these "leagues" pop up at various tennis sites - could be an interesting alternative to tournaments for a while (players might prefer the no travel)
