Alizé Cornet explodes after the postponement of Roland Garros

The news of the postponement of Roland Garros a week later than expected is already starting to generate reactions in the world of tennis and one of the first to speak out has been the French tennis player Alizé Cornet.

In statements collected by the newspaper L'Équipe after a match at the Volvo Car Open in Charleston Cornet, she was surprised by the decision of the Grand Slam and charged harshly against the Minister of Sports, Roxana Maracineanu. “As Sports Minister she is a calamity. I have nothing against her but she does nothing but make bad decisions for the sport”

Cornet says he understands the decision made by Roland Garros, but believes that this could affect the players and the calendar of the ATP and WTA circuits to some extent. “The decision has been selfish and we will suffer it in the calendar. I understand that these are not easy times for the tournament, but they should think more about the players and the calendar and, especially, in all the tournaments that will be affected.”
