Tiley further said in the statement that the tournament's organisers make "no secret about working hard to provide the very best experience for all players" at the Australian Open."We put significant efforts into looking after all of them and making the Australian Open, and Melbourne, one of their very favourite places to be".
"When he (Federer) promotes the Laver Cup, there are a number of conflicts of interest that have become disturbing", Benneteau said.
"And he played 12 or 13 of his 14 matches in the night session. The radio interview that happened over week ago, which surfaces now in French [with] Julien, who is a nice guy, I know him since junior times, I think all of this has been taken out of context".
"In terms of players and their appeal, it needs to be said that Roger Federer is a once-in-a-generation player widely regarded as one of the biggest box-office athletes in the world", Tiley said.
"The fans demand his appearance in the big stadiums and our broadcasters naturally want his matches to air in prime time". And I don't think there's a tournament director in the world who's not going to take those factors into account when setting the schedule. But I asked to play Monday at the US Open.
'If Federer doesn't have it, who is going to have it?'
"I get asked "would you like to play Monday or Tuesday" sometimes". Sometimes they ask me, you know, Asia wants you to play at night. On the other side, you have to understand that also Federer is a driving force of tennis in terms of revenue, in terms of attention, in terms of all these different things.
But Federer was supported by world number one Novak Djokovic on Monday, with his rival suggesting the six-time Australian Open victor had actually earned the right to "special treatment" for all the good he has done for the sport.
Isner said the top players sell the most tickets and deserve their reward.
"It is like the Tiger Woods effect in golf".
Facing each other in their opening match for a second straight year, Zverev produced the slightly steadier tennis in an error-strewn two hour and six minutes contest to extend his record against Cilic to 2-0 at The O2 arena and 6-1 overall. So that is how you can look at a guy like Roger. And the seven governing bodies - namely the men's and women's tours, the four slams and the International Tennis Federation - tend to pull in different directions. So, he deserves everything and more that he's ever had.' Commenting on the new Davis Cup format, Isner added: 'I do think the Davis Cup needed a bit of a change.
