Frenchman Julien Benneteau caused a stir during an interview on French radio station RMC Sport on Sunday stating that tournament referees give Federer preferential treatment when it comes to scheduling his matches.

Moreover, it is a proven fact Federer is the biggest draw when a tournament commences and apart from the fans at the venue, television broadcasters are also fighting to show the Swiss star's matches at prime time when they will get maximum viewership.

Federer was responding to controversial comments from French veteran Julien Benneteau, who said the 20-Grand Slam champion was able to use his reputation to secure favourable scheduling.

But Tiley, responding in a lengthy statement, insisted that six-time victor Federer's "box office" stature is behind the scheduling of his matches.

Current World No. 1 Novak Djokovic has spoken up in defence of his rival. "Sometimes I get asked, 'Do you want to play day or night?' Sometimes they go ask the agent". But I asked to play on Monday at the US Open and I played on Tuesday night.

The entire middle-east does not recognise Israel but their judo team participated in UAE (in the Abu Dhabi Grand Slam 2018) under their flag and anthem.

"I am not the youngest but I am enjoying myself and I just want to play one more good match".

Dominic Thiem kept his ATP Finals alive on Thursday, beating Kei Nishikori in straight sets and pinning his hopes on a comprehensive win for Kevin Anderson over Roger Federer.

"I hurt my hand training at the start of the grass season", Federer said at Basel tournament which he won.

"I don't really feel that I am in the mood during a World Tour Finals to discuss that topic, to be honest". "I don't think there is a tournament director in the world who doesn't take those factors into account when setting the schedule".

"Julien is a nice guy, I know him since the junior times, all of this has been totally taken out of context". Again you have to understand that also Federer is a driving force of tennis in terms of revenue.

Conservative MP turns on Theresa May during Prime Minister's Questions
Mrs May said it would be "entirely irresponsible" for the Government to have simply torn up the backstop. This could be a gale that's weathered in a few days, or a serious storm that sweeps the government away.

Isner said the top players sell the most tickets and deserve their reward.

Federer will now play the runner-up of Group Gustavo Kuerten, with Anderson taking on the victor. The popularity of the sport has soared owing to the intense rivalry and competition levels the big three have brought over the last 15 years. "I'd rather put it to rest rather than adding to it so you guys got something to write about", said Federer.

"They maybe should get more special treatment, because those guys, the top players, have made other players below them a lot of money". He is men's tennis in my opinion. "Tennis Australia is justly proud of the success of the Laver Cup", said Tiley in the statement, "in which we certainly have a share, alongwith USTA and other partners".

Federer's management team launched the Laver Cup in 2017 with the support of Tennis Australia.

"We run our events to the highest standards and reject as well as challenge any claims contrary".

Country star Roy Clark passed away at 85
Clark even headlined a tour in the Soviet Union in 1976, when that was still a rare opportunity for American performers. The cause was complications of pneumonia, according to a statement from his publicists, Sandy Brokaw and Jeremy Westby.

Competing against each other for the first time since that insane Wimbledon clash that Kevin won 13-11 in the fifth after saving a match point, Roger earned his fifth win over the South African in six matches, losing 14 points in nine service games and saving three out of four break points in the opening set.
