"Players who don't play is not because of a relationship with SFX," Tobias said. "Ultimately if you're a great player they will want you to play no matter who runs or owns the tournament. We want the best possible players in our tournaments."
"We can get players a preferential schedule, or play Andy Roddick, for example, on certain nights," said John Tobias, vice president of SFX Tennis. "We can help them rent a car or give them a suite upgrade. But it stays within the rules."
