Roger Federer causes a stir on Twitter suggesting a merging of the men's and women's tennis tours

- He clarified this was a merging of the two governing bodies (ATP and WTA) saying "These are tough times in every sport and we can come out of this with 2 weakened bodies or 1 stronger body."
- WTA president Micky Lawler said it should be seriously discussed last year.
- Billie Jean King expressed support saying it had been her long term vision.
- Last week ATP chairman Andrea Gaudenzi said he thought the two tours working more closely together is "a no-brainer" - Many high profile players (mainly female) expressed support for the idea
