Goodall won't retire. Sounds like he's trying to force the LTA into more money to aid his career. I do wonder how those guys around that sort of ranking (200 and below) get by though.
I agree, and when you look at the comparison between Murray and Goodall annexed to the article, i.e. that Goodall's career earnings at the age of 27 are £258,969, whereas Murray at 25 has career earnings of £15.6m, which included £333,000 from his first two tournaments of 2012 alone, it sounds like a good case for the radical change in the distribution of prize money which, as I'm sure you know, has been a bone of contention for some time now and which saw the AO threatened with a boycott, fortunately averted thanks to action taken by the organisers' decision to increase the total purse, with increases being weighted towards lower-ranked players who lose in the early rounds.
As I see it, it's a vicious circle for those players since, without a high profile, they don't attract lucrative sponsorships, and so struggle to meet the costs of their living expenses and travel, and presumably also find it difficult to hire decent coaches who might be able to raise the level of their game to a point where they can be more successful and as a result earn more prize money.
