Belgium’s Jeroen Vanneste, 24, says he had to pay $20 just to support his roommate at a $15K in Egypt – in which Vanneste is a competitor.
Why? Well, Futures factories like Sharm El Sheikh hold events all year long, for the express purpose of filling their resort hotel rooms.
Vanneste (like many other players) opted for a cheaper room off-site. Since he wasn’t staying at their hotel, they apparently dinged him.
The same ticket for the ATP event in France this week is 5 Euros.
Will the ITF’s planned “reforms” improve conditions?
