It's a bluff. WTA can't afford to drop the Chinese money long-term. Players will never agree to paycuts if Chinese money is gone.

The WTA can’t really row back now without it possibly leading to them getting sanctioned in the USA. Don’t rule out sporting bodies being sanctioned for dealing with China in the years to come.

In terms of press coverage Osaka and Serena Williams are the famous players currently playing. 

Yes and also Halep and Kvitova are much more famous than Sakkari and they also posted today about it.

 

My point was that in the current top 10, nobody besides Sakkari (at least as far as I am aware) has posted anything about it.

 

 

EDIT-I now see that Badosa and Jabeur eventually posted too.

If Djokovic plays then everyone plays. Hell, even Sabalenka got vaccinated after missing Indian Wells with COVID. This controversy is basically over.

The thing is Djokovic has been hinting he might boycott it despite likely being personally vaccinated.

He won't boycott his most successful Grand Slam :evil:

 

Btw, we have a new WTA record in broken serves in a single match. World junior #1 Victoria Jimenez Kasintseva beat Maria Lourdes Carle 7-6 5-7 7-5 in a match that lasted 3h 47 minutes and featured 26(!) broken service games in the Montevideo Open 125k. VJK is only 16 years old so you'll probably hear about her in the future anyway.

The ATP seem to fear he will use it as an excuse to push for a breakaway tour.
