Today’s “Phrase of the Day” is be in the same boat and it’s meaning is “be in the same unpleasant or difficult situation as other people”.
German legend Boris Becker has urged tennis authorities to seriously consider playing tournaments, even if behind closed doors, in order to save the careers of lower-ranked players.
“Most tennis players outside the top-50, male or female, need the weekly pay cheque,” Becker said.
“For 30 years, the ATP, the WTA and the ITF have never agreed with each other and only worried about their own tournaments But now everybody is in the same boat and struggling. It is an opportunity of a lifetime to bring everybody together.”
