apart from the people at the very top, there's less money in tennis to be made than in football, nba, nfl etc.

Not really the point as such, it is largely an individual sport. Maybe that explains it. Also I'm talking about the sharp end, not Challenger tennis. Top 40 plus anyone who is regularly mixing it with them, not exactly poorly paid.

A single football club will have 30+ players on the books.

Re- above post- Not sure about Federer, maybe his Covid opinions are legit but I thought he was notoriously egocentric off court. Perhaps he has matured with age.

He seems very popular behind the scenes, both with players and staff. I've no doubt he has an ego, but I've not heard any bad stories.

Not watched a second of Indian Wells this year, but this is lovely to see. Top 10, IW semis, and should now qualify for the WTA finals. I just need to see her win a major at some point.

Also congrats I guess to Cameron Norrie and his fan, but I can't imagine not wanting Dimitrov to win the whole thing now looking at the remaining players in the draw.

Anyone watching Randy Murray vs Diego Schwarzman on Amazon Prime (or anywhere else)? Getting a bit epic here.

it's not a bad comeback, mostly losing against players in the top 20

With the way he is improving against playing these top 20 players it's just a matter of time and fitness before he starts to beat them again.
