The organizers of the demonstration tennis tournament in St. Petersburg, in which Viktoria Tomova will participate, intend to keep the money planned for the players a secret. The main sponsor of the team “Trophy of Northern Palmyra” is “Gazprom”.
“There’s an old joke that everyone plays for a living. The teams compete for the title, with special financial conditions depending on the results the tennis player has achieved in the tournament.
But there is no rule that the premium will be divided into six. There is no need to announce the prize fund. They constantly write and talk that we pour a lot of money on the players and that’s why they come. We have not spilled anything on anyone”, commented Alexander Medvedev, director of the tournament.
He added that there are talks to include Rafael Nadal in one of the teams, but the injured Spaniard will not play anywhere until the end of the year.
